This year I have the absolute privilege of being the WSU Vice-President. I say privilege because I'm incredibly passionate about students having an empowering university experience and ensuring that students are at the center of every decision made by our University. To have the opportunity to exercise this passion in my everyday work is a privilege.
As WSU Vice-President I chair Te Pou Whirinaki (The Student Advisory Council). I am also on various committees such as the Academic Board, the Student Services Governance Committee (SSGC) and the Special Consideration Committee.
Kotahitanga, empowerment, advocacy and wholesome vibes are four principles that will continue to underpin my time on this year's board.
