Margarita Damai - Your Guildhall School of Business and Law & Human Sciences Full Time Officer
Tell us a bit about yourself
Hi!! My name is Margarita Damai and I am your new super duper officer for GSBL & Human Sciences!
I just finished my foundation year for Biomedical Sciences and I loved the course.
I am from Albania, and just came to the UK last September (not gonna lie- I LOVE
THE WEATHER HERE!)
I am a very active and outgoing individual, so you will probably see me around the campus this year a lot!
This year I was a student rep and I was secretary of the Vegan and Science society, as well as president of the International & EU Student society.
Something you should know about me is that I am a very determined girl, once I put my mind to something I will never give up without achieving it!
At the same time, I love designing, especially designing quotes and posters! If you will need someone to speak to just add me to the list.
My life motto is: A winner never quits, a quitter never wins!
What is your role?
I am the full-time officer for the Guildhall School of Business and Law (GSBL) & Human Sciences.
I am responsible to support and advocate for all the students within those two schools. I have a lot of projects that I hope I will be able to accomplish during this year!
Why did you run for your position?
I decided to run for this position because I felt that I could do more to help my peers to succeed and have an unforgettable time at LondonMet. I want to be your voice and to lead you towards your success!
"Together Towards Success"
What are you working on this year?
I have a lot of goals that I plan to achieve during this year.
Together with the President, I am determined to change the assessment`s cap (40%) in our university.
Expanding and providing more support to international students will be a priority for me this year. I am determined to increase the library resources (access to more online journals) as well as help in providing scanned copies of the physical books from the library.
I will try to support our university sustainability policies by appointing 6 sustainability student representatives across our schools. Together with the sustainability team, we will work hard to raise awareness and take actions in becoming more sustainable.
I will make sure there are a lot of activities and events planned for this year. We all miss the fun days, but I will make sure to organise safe and inclusive events for our societies and students during this year.
Briefly, my work portfolio includes:
- Societies & Events
- International Students
- I will be also supporting our Women's Officer (part-time liberation officer).
