1. WHAT EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS I BRING TO THE ROLE:
I have always been very active within the university, being involved with sports, societies and volunteering which is a big part of the Activities Officer role which I will be dedicated to. I believe I have a lot of experience and skills from previous roles including chair and Social Secretary of the women’s basketball club and project leader of a volunteering group that has aimed to increase participation within performing arts of various ages. I also feel that I have the motivation and personality to make my year as Activities Officer not only as successful as possible, but also enjoyable for myself and all students to enhance their experience whilst at the university. In addition, I am currently a member of the Sports Committee which requires a high level of commitment and organisation in order to help out with events such as Varsity and Sports Ball. Communication is very important to me in order to relate to the students and I feel my social skills support this. My creativity, decision making, enthusiasm, time management and accountability will ensure that the involvement of student led events will run as successfully as possible.
2. IN THIS ROLE I WILL ACHIEVE FOR STUDENTS
I feel that the main role of activities officer is to get students involved within the university in as many different ways as possible regardless of ethnicity, disability or any minority group as everyone is welcome to represent Sheffield Hallam University. One engaging way to do this is to hold events led by students for various activities, prioritising charity events in order to make RAG as successful as it has ever been. Also, the Hallam award is an achievement gained by students which is an award I will make easily accessible for all students to apply for in the academic year 2011/12 in recognition of the work they have done for the university, as I feel that In the past, it has not been advertised enough to all students at the University. I will also engage with societies and volunteering to make sure everything is running as smoothly as possible as well as personally getting involved. Students come to SHU to learn and to express their ideas and I aim to encourage this further.

If I get involved, you get involved!
