Why I decided to be a liberation rep: I decided to become a liberation rep after my own experiences through the education system as a disabled woman. I realise how often academia is often inaccessible for those with disabilities, so I wanted to advocate for the community. My passion for advocation came around during the pandemic where I felt for the first time that many of the accommodations, I had wished for had finally happened during the pandemic - and I realise that I am not the only one with this experience. This experience made me think more widely about the struggles that disabled people face, and this made me feel rather passionate about becoming a liberation rep.
What I want to achieve while being a liberation rep: I want to raise a conversation about disabled students experiences in academia, and how the pandemic may have affected this. Furthermore, I am extremely passionate about bringing the disabled community together, and this is one of my key aims of what I would like to achieve in the role. I would also like to bring the wider liberation groups together, and this would be done via events and other social activities.
Fun fact about me!: I went to America without my family at age 12
