Precious Agho - Your School of Computing and Digital Media & School of Art, Architecture and Design
Tell us a bit about you
Hi! I am Precious.
I studied Media, Communications and Journalism. I chose to attend the London Met, because of the diverse community (especially being a mature student) I felt I fitted in.
What is your role?
My role encompasses me having to attend Committee meetings, leading campaigns, planning activities and most importantly ensuring that students stay at the heart of everything we do here at the SU.
Why did you run for your position?
For starters, I stood as an officer because I wanted to represent my peers and London Met as a university within the community. I’m also passionate about the impact activities have on students' experience and building long-lasting relationships.
Secondly, to promote the student's voice and also to bridge the gap between staff and students when it comes to communication on what really matters to students.
What are you working on this year?
This year, I will be focusing on:
- Mental Health in Men - Let's get men to talk about their mental health.
Success Measure: set up a weekly or fortnightly session for men to talk about their mental health.
- Set up an Online mentor programme for previous and current students.
Success Measure: Having a directory of contacts for students when they start their courses for them to be able to connect with potential mentors.
- Aldgate Name Change.
Success Measure: Name change by the end of the year.
- Parents and Carers Society and mailing list to be set up.
Success Measure: Up and running by the end of the year.
- Better SU Facilities at Aldgate Campus and SU presence, A bigger room at Aldgate with better facilities/equipment for students.
Success Measures: 60% of Aldgate students acknowledging that there’s an officer for their school and are confident in using the services provided by their students’ Union space.
I will be working closely with various departments in order to achieve better outcomes for our students whether academically or socially.
