Wagwun guys, my name is Sofia and I am your VP Welfare and Community officer. I’m a bit of a Lancaster veteran as I’ve completed my undergrad here as well as my masters this year – yayy, so I know Lancaster quite well! For those of you coming from outside of Lancaster, (and even from here) I am from East London and I know how ‘different’ it can be up here, but I will be here for all of your welfare needs with anything from culture shock to mental health. Throughout my time as a student, I was involved in a lot of welfare and community related campaigns and initiatives to boost the integration and celebration of diversity that we have here. This really helped me to find my purpose here, so don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in!
My main goals for this year are:
I can’t wait to meet a lot of you this year, I’m a pretty casual person so no need for formalities, so please stop by or drop me an email! Please don’t be a stranger, but I have to warn you my hair changes almost every two months, so don’t be confused if you cant recognise me as I may have an afro one week and braids the next!
