A huge welcome from myself and the whole of Cardiff Met Students’ Union! Welcome to the best few years of your life! I’m Keira Davies and I will be your SU Vice President for the next year.
My role is to help with anything that you, as students, may need during the year. I represent the students to make sure your voice is heard and views are shared at the highest level. Whether it be support and advice, education, welfare matters or approving a new society, if there is anything you need to chat about, feel free to pop into the office or catch me in the corridor!
I studied Sport Performance Analysis on the Cyncoed Campus for 3 years before campaigning to be your VP this year. During my time as an undergraduate student, I made sure that I immersed myself into uni life as much as possible, and it was the best decision I ever made.
Very soon into my first year, I became a part of the university’s netball club and joined a society, both which are provided by the students’ Union. Into my second and third year, I was appointed as the School Rep of CSSHS Cyncoed, where my aim was to be the main figurehead of student voice and feedback within my own school. In my third year, I became co-chair of my society, as well as becoming a head coach within the netball club. Without the Students’ Union, I wouldn’t have been able to make the most of my time at Cardiff Met, which will further benefit me in future life.
Over my time as Vice President, I aim to make life easier for Cardiff Met students, from fresher’s week to graduation. This includes:
• Increasing chill out spaces around both campuses
• Maintaining our ‘campus canines’ initiative
• Improving access to facilities the university offers
I would like to wish you all a huge good luck for your first few weeks at university Feel free to ask myself or any of the SU staff members any questions if you see us around, or pop into the SU office on either campus.
