Hey! I'm Milea, the Student President...
My job is to represent the diverse student voice and aim to give students the best possible experience at college.
Diversity is close to my heart as I come from a mixed background myself. I was born in Germany to Italian/German parents, but grew up in Donegal, Ireland. I have now lived in Glasgow for 4 years.
It's really important for me that students feel welcomed here as I know and understand how difficult it can be not knowing anyone. I completed my HND in Hospitality Management here at City of Glasgow College and was a Class Representative in my 1st year of studies. I played for the College Female Football team for 2 years and was nominated captain in the 2nd year. In my 2nd year of the sports club I also assisted with the boy’s football team. I really enjoyed participating in the variety of sports clubs as it allowed me to stay active especially during the stressful exam period.
Last year I was your Vice President of Social and Activities. My focus was to increase participation in both sports clubs and societies and to provide opportunities that helped with student wellbeing.
Vice President role and now Student President I have learned a lot about myself, become a lot more confident and have learned how to deal with difficult situations which will definitely help me in my future career path.
As your Student President, I want to ensure that students feel that they're treated fairly, that we continue to inprove our Class Rep system, and that we work to achieve real, positive change in the college.
I'm always keen to hear your thoughts and ideas on what you think could improve your learning experience at City of Glasgow College so please get in touch if you have any suggestions!
