School of Social Professions Part-time Officer

Godwin Akinyemi - Part-time Officer for the School of Social Professions

Hi! I am Godwin.     
Currently, I am doing my second year in BSC Social Work degree. I am from South London, I would describe myself as a competitive person who does things from a balanced perspective.

What do I do?
My role as a student is to give the student a voice when dealing with problems such as enrollment, mitigating circumstances, school fees and other general inquires deal with their course.

Why did I run?
I thought it was important to become a student officer so I could make a difference at a London metropolitan university. It's an amazing opportunity to have your say in deciding on your course, in the school of social professions, and at the student union. I feel this role will further develop my skills in professionalism and leadership which are two strong attributes to have. I really enjoy the sense of a diverse community at the university it has the feel of a family environment.

What are your plans for the year?
I would say more student engagement and more accountability from the university to students when things go wrong.
