Manifesto

As individuals we all have a voice and an opinion, and as individuals we all deserve to be heard. This is not through magic. It is all based on the simple system of you speaking up and a great representative amongst yourselves to hear your voice. Voting for me as your deputy president of Whitelands College would make this simple wish come true. Conforming to the core of this role, I will centre my focus onto putting your demands and wishes as students of Whitelands College into action, and making every day a brighter day for Whitelands.

As your deputy president, I will take into account that “you” does not just summarise in those living on campus, those active on social media, or the most outgoing. As an individual having had the experience of living at home, not having social media and at times not seeing myself as a part of a community at least once before, I understand the struggle. I will not only focus my attention on making the college a better environment for its students, but will also focus on making those mentioned feel involved in the community. More events involving you, whose commuting is withholding them from living the “university life”. Events you would hear about through various other means; not restricted to social media and social media only. Not feeling as a part of Whitelands, or Roehampton’s community? I will be focusing on you. Nobody should feel left out of where they belong to, where they gain their education for their years ahead.

Having had the opportunity to engage with some of the societies and activities offered by the University of Roehampton, whether I were living off campus or on campus, I now have a grasp of what the university life is all about. I understand the importance of a representative who comes from the same place as other students, who is willing to hear us out. With your vote and support, I wish to be that representative. In my last year at the University of Roehampton, where I have had more opportunities in three years than any other time in my life, I am finally ready to give back.

In the simplest way possible, I hope to ask you fellow Whitelands’ students, to whom I can truly relate to, to vote me as your deputy president. Together we can make everyone a part of this small but rich community that we have, for a better future.
