Alice Game, BA (Honours) Marketing Communications and Advertising
Democracy and communications officer, Hallam Union
I'm in the sandwich year or my course. I ran in the student elections to become the democracy and communications officer at the Union. I had to campaign for a week showing why students should elect me to represent them this year!
In my role as democracy and communications officer I oversee the student media. As part of SHU Media we have SHUlife, our student magazine, and SHU Radio, our student radio station. Alongside this I also help manage and assist in the running of the student elections and referendums.
My role is such a great opportunity for me. Not only will the experiences I learn help me finish my last year at University but I feel that I will grow massively as a person. I have a lot of responsibility in this role and have already learnt so much.
I'll be able to successfully use the skills I learn and apply them to my studies when I return next year, and whatever path I decide to take once I graduate.
