I love living in Leeds and want to help make it a safer, greener, more co-operative place. I’m a third year International Development student with a lot of enthusiasm for a student activism. I’ve been involved with a number of campaigning societies including PSG and STAR, have been volunteering in the Green Action Food Co-op, and I volunteered for a year with a mental health charity working with refugees in Harehills.
If elected I will:
· Campaign for better, safer housing and take action against rubbish landlords
· Help more students find local volunteering opportunities
· Continue to encourage students to cut down on waste, and the council to properly collect recycling from LS6
· Promote initiatives to support vulnerable groups off campus, by supporting Reclaim the Night and establishing a voucher exchange scheme for asylum seekers
· Support community-run spaces, such as the Peanut Gallery and the Royal Park School campaign
