About Rose

Elected Vice President Welfare in March 2020

Course: HNC Working with Communities 

Ideas for year: I want to make sure students are aware that ECSA exists and that there's lots of support available to them, I'm hoping to be able to host healthy and engaging outdoor activities for students to socialise, leading to a fun and memorable college experience.

Lockdown activities: I've really enjoyed swimming in the sea and perfecting my pizza skills! 

Favorite studying tool: I can't live without my bluetooth speaker when studying - music is a definite must.

Fun fact: I speak French fluently having grown up in Senegal and Burundi

Reason for running: Just like Victoria, I really liked being a Class Rep and supporting my fellow class mates so when my friends encouraged me to run, I thought what a great opportunity to continue supporting students!
