FRESHERS' & POSTGRADUATE REPRESENTATIVE
VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED
I would like to represent LUUMS as a Freshers Rep because I’d like to be a part of making positive change in the society so more people can get involved and have fun in music. I am a good listener and I feel that I would be approachable to people who want to share any feedback or ask questions about the ensembles. It is important for members to feel like they can have a say in what goes on in the society and I would like to be able to show that their opinions will make an impact and need to be heard. I am quite a confident person so would be happy to speak in front of my peers to keep them up to date with what’s going on and raise awareness of any upcoming events that have been organised. I also want to make sure all the freshers have a really enjoyable first year and I would want to be able to offer advice outside of music while also encouraging everyone to come to socials to make new friends and create a strong music community with a variety of personalities and characters, which I feel is unique from other subjects and needs to be sustained throughout the years. I would love for everyone to have a really fun time in LUUMS while also challenging themselves and it would be really rewarding to be a part of the team that can provide that.
