What inspired you to become a part-time officer? 

Physical and mental health difficulties act as an inevitable barrier in every aspect of university life for a significant proportion of the student body, I wanted to build on my personal experience and passion to represent the best interests of students that need it.


What are your priorities for the year? 

I want to make sure that all students with any accessibility needs are treated with compassion in every aspect of their university experience. This includes ensuring that remote teaching is as accessible as possible, and establishing a channel of communication for students to comfortably feedback on concerns. I also want to run a campaign to put 'not every disability is visible' signage on all disabled toilets across campus.


What are your hobbies and interests? 

I'm President of the student magazine, as well as writing and editing for LSM too, which takes up a fair amount of my free time. I love music, and I have a general interest in the relationship between pop culture, current affairs and online media. I'm a big fan of dogs and I'm a lifelong veggie.


How can I contact you?

Ella will be recieving an SU email address soon. In the meantime, email nt203@le.ac.uk if you have any queries.
