Media & Design

As Media and Design Representative I create exciting and attractive digital content to represent students’ activities. Getting involved in the activities set up by clubs and societies as well as the Students' Union is the best way to keep up interactions with friends and to balance your lifestyle between work and pleasure.

I am very excited to create content for events and to collaborate with clubs and societies to show off the creative ways in which they have continued to interact with their members.
