So a few weeks ago I blogged about my efforts to be elected as student union HE Communications Officer at my college in Blackpool.
I found out on Monday of this week, that I was elected with a majority of 47 votes to 2, who voted to re-open nominations.
I’m really pleased with the result. Even though it doesn’t seem like a great deal of votes, I actually didn’t do much to get them, other than contact some of my tutors and encourage them to let their classes know that voting was open and to put up a handful of posters around campus.
My duties start on Monday really, when I’ll be getting my class rep training and meeting a few more of the union executive committee.
I’m nervous about what my responsibilities will be, hopefully nothing I can’t handle! Equally excited though to see what challenges lie ahead.
