Initial Teacher Education
I chose to do an extra year which I felt would benefit me, but as course rep I had to deal with a lot of extra stress due to the issues we faced. Because of this, I had to follow up with the Student's Union and follow procedures to ensure that my cohort received clear information about what was expected of us, and also to ensure no other cohort suffered the same issue. I feel I am approachable, diplomatic, and understanding, along with being professional. I believe these qualities are befitting of a StAR and I would like to be able to offer my support to other students who feel they need it in regards to what is expected from the university and our ITE course.

I decided to run for the StAr role in my second year as I felt strongly about the student voice being heard and wanted to take an active role in communications between students and staff. I feel strongly that we need to be heard in order for improvements to be made not only for our benefit but for all who decided to join Newman. Our voice is the strongest and needs to be listened to.
