SU President


Image of Rhiannon Jenkins, President 2022/23    About me. Course: BA English with a year abroad. Hometown: A little village in South Wales. How do you think your friends and family would describe you? Probably as independent, passionate, caring, and a bit of a try hard.    What inspired you to become an Exec Officer? Working on SU campaigns and LSM investigations in my final year made me realise there was room for positive change at the uni and I wanted to help bring that forward, especially because I’ve loved my time at Leicester and I want to make sure everyone else can share the same amazing experience.


What can you offer students in your role? Passion. I’m here to stand up for you and your causes, to elevate your voice and concerns. This role isn’t about what I want to achieve, but what we can all achieve together. I want to fight your corner for a better university and campus.    What is the most important change you want to make this year? Increasing engagement with students is a huge goal of mine, especially after a year or so of campus being so empty. The SU is here for every student and we need to make sure we’re expressing that in the best way and letting students know where to turn to for support.    Hobbies and Interests. Over lockdown I really got into my fitness and baking (we’ll see how long that lasts now…) but I also love reading, hiking, films, my cat and trying not to kill my plants.
