Coming from the small East Yorkshire seaside town of Hornsea, I always imagined that I would break out far into the big wide world. Instead I broke out precisely 13 miles away to Hull having being chained to the proverbial radiator following my A-level results. However, I don't believe I would have been happier or more comfortable anywhere else. Being at Hull I was independent of my family, but with the support of Hull University Union I didn't feel out of depth or homesick for which I was incredibly grateful.
Like most situations in my life getting involved with HUU was something I definitely fell into. I joined the first aid society LINKS in the September of my first year through St John Ambluance and was handing out ice packs in the nightclub at 3am before I'd offically even been registered to my course.
In my three years at Hull I managed to find funding for a new defibrillator in Asylum, trained over 100 people in first aid and even managed to hold a job as student staff in the student voice team. Being so involved prompted me to run in the elections to continue supporting as many people as I can in a greater capacity and take advantage of the EATS pizzas for another year. Currently I am looking forward to the future and making the student experience even better than it is right now.
