Liberation Officer


Image of Nic Farmer, Liberation Officer 2022/23    About me. Hey everyone! My name is  Nic and I am your Liberation Officer for 2022/23. Course: Psychology. Hometown: South London. How do you think your friends and family would describe you? They would say I’m funny, passionate and caring.    What inspired you to become an Executive Officer? I really enjoyed working with the SU and being able to create my own events. It honestly felt like the perfect next step for me to be an executive officer. I’m so passionate about liberation, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do.


What can you offer students in your role? I can offer transparency, communication and  assertiveness. When it feels  like there is not a voice in  your corner, I want to be there  to make sure you do. Communication and transparency is key to my job, I want to regularly update students on the work I am doing and regularly collect feedback.    What is the most important change you want to make this year? Liberation covers so many different areas, the priority is to empower more students on campus to discover their inner activist. I would love to see an increase in students coming forward to create their own campaigns and events on issues that matter to them.    Hobbies & interests. I have a YouTube channel so I like editing and uploading videos as well as taking picture sometimes. I am a beginner gamer – I am still in love with GTA V and anything Lego-based. Journey was also a very beautiful game to play.  Series- Attack on Titan, Bob’s Burgers, Bojack Horseman, Rick and Morty and Grace and Frankie (guilty pleasure!)  albums- Made in Lagos- Wizkid, Blonde- Frank Ocean, Blue Water Road- Kehlani
