What issues do you think are most important to students at the University of Brighton and how will you make sure they are heard at NUS Conference?

I think the 3 main issues effecting students not just in Brighton but across the UK are the lack of appropriate mental health support in universities, the rising cost of rent as well as dodgy landlords and of course the climate emergency. I have years of experience within youth voice as part of the UK Youth Parliament and therefore feel confident that I have the ability to make the voices of students in Brighton heard.

How will you communicate events from NUS Conference back to students at Brighton?

I think the most effective way of communicating information from the NUS conference is through the Brighton SU social media pages.
