Mia Nembhard, President
Hi, I'm Mia and I'm President of your Students' Union 2020/21 after being your Sports Officer last year.
Course: Geography BA
Hometown: South London
How do you think your friends and family would describe you?
Clumsy, Funny, Hard-working.
What inspired you to become an Executive Officer?
I didn’t know what I wanted to do after uni and I had become more and more involved with the SU through being on committees as Publicity Sec and the Club Captain of the netball Club.
What can you offer students in your role?
Honesty, energy and advocacy.
What is the most important change you want to make this year?
Transforming Wednesdays so that students are able to focus on themselves, whether that’s career development, extra-curricular activities or just basic self-care. Also, advocating for students this year in terms of the accessibility of dual-delivery, blacklisting bad landlords, working on defining and the reporting systems for hate-based crimes of racism, homophobia and transphobia and continue working on justice for survivors on campus.
How do you chill out when you’re not at work?
Netflix, Nintendo Switch or time with mates.
If you were without the internet for a year, what three books, three songs and three series would you want to keep you amused?
I’m looking forward to starting to tick some items off my manifesto and really getting to know a greater range of students. The conferences and meetings are all part of what makes it feel official, but working with students and seeing your ideas come to life is what I am most excited about.
