Hi, My name is Jade Lindo and I am running for the position of Black and Minority Ethnic Students Officer because I believe in order to continue to make a change we have to come together and unite within our differences. I would like to be the voice for those that need it the most.
I have experience as a student council member, as an undergraduate I held the position of LGBT officer for two years. From this experience I have developed the following skills: communication, organisation and strategising.I believe these make me an ideal candidate.
If elected I would aim to:
- Objective 1 hold a new series of virtual events aimed at getting more people involved in areas that affect BME students to increase outreach and reputation
- Objective 2 Increase social activity by running weekly socials across social media
- Objective 3 increase funding by seeking out new sponsorship opportunities and raising awareness about particular issues surrounding the health of BME students such as Covid-19 .
I think these aims will have a positive impact on the students at Goldsmiths, especially the BME students who may be finding things difficult due to the current situation.
Thank you for reading my manifesto.
