About Ro....

Hiya! I’m Ro. I consider the extracurricular activities you do can really impact your time at university; helping positively shape the person you become for the next adventure after graduating!

Over my time at university both undergrad and masters I have run various sports teams, as well as being involved within societies, these have ultimately led me to have a better time at university. Being active outside of your degree can give you the edge over someone.

I will always be clear, honest and open to suggestions, as well as listen to the students' thoughts and opinions, finding solutions and helping others reach their full potential.
