We can all agree that being part of inclusive communities we identify with are important during our time at university.
During my second year, I ran for President of the African Caribbean Society and Captain of Women's Basketball. I was encouraged to lead and work with a team, make important decisions, bring together like-minded students, and ensure the continuation of both groups for future creatives.
Whether it's leading a group, monitoring finances (ensuring enough money for events), or bringing new and exciting ideas to fellow students, becoming a committee member will provide you with the opportunity to make a difference - the way you'd like to. Organising activities and events provides you with skills that can be applied in any field of practice when you leave UAL. Do it now whilst Arts SU can support you!
We all have something to bring to the table so be bold, step up, and get involved in the best way you can!
If you'd like to chat to me about what it's like to be a committee member then please drop me an email - I'd love to answer any questions you have!
