Every month, we highlight the great work of some of our student volunteers.
This month, we spoke to Silvia who has shared her experience as a student volunteer at LMSU.
My name is Silvia Librizzi and I am a second year student in Fashion Marketing and Business Management.
Exactly one year ago I decided to take the role of president of London Met Fashion Society, and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever taken. I decided to volunteer especially because Fashion Marketing students, unless they find themselves in their third year, don't have many opportunities to experience the industry of Fashion at 360 degrees within the academic context (since most of the modules part of the course relate to a more general knowledge of Business). That is why, from the very beginning of my "career" as president, together with my team I have started to brainstorm on what kind of activities we could bring to our peers. So far, we have accomplished so many wonderful results thanks to:
The Industry Cat-Talk series: which gave our students the chance to gain a deeper insight into the various areas of the Fashion industry, as well as providing them with the chance to network with some of the brightest personalities making part of the business of Fashion.
The Vintage Clothes Sale: thanks to which we raised more than £250, donated to charity;
The Fashion in Action event: the first biggest Fashion event that Holloway Campus has ever seen. And in which our students enjoyed an insightful conference of the future of Fashion (led by some of the hottest industry experts), as well as a live catwalk show.
Thanks to this role, I have had the chance to meet and partner with so many brilliant people within and outside the London Met community. I plan to leverage my activity in order to keep on serving our community, and growing further as a person and professional.
Knowing that, in some ways, you can potentially make a positive impact on student lives, leaves you with an indescribable sense of fulfilment that makes you want to do more. And this is what I would like to do, until the end of my academic journey here at London Met.
