Hiya! I'm Iona, your Vice President for Diversity and Wellbeing...
I am currently studying HND Business Management and hoping to continue this subject at University next year.
My role is to ensure that every student feels safe, happy and has access to opportunities. I have a strong interest in creating a wider awareness of mental health within the college and would like to make this a priority for student experience. To do this, I will be focussing on continuing the wellbeing workshops online and trying out new activities when the college is open again, and online.
My biggest goal for this year is to create a campaign that raises awareness about respectful and inclusive language for minority groups such as LGBTQ+, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities. I am a believer in opening up these discussions, as this is the only way we can learn how to be accepting and compassionate to one another.
I enjoy exercising, such as cycling, hill walking and running. I have found it has a positive effect not only on my mental health, but also my fitness! I also like to explore new places when I have time and have enjoyed finding new interesting spots in Glasgow during my time at college.
