About Louisa

Hello I'm Louisa, the current SU's Opportunities Officer. I have just finished a Business and Management degree here at Aber.

I am originally from Abergavenny, South Wales so was very happy to be able to move to another beautiful part of Wales to study. Student life and living by the seaside also seemed the perfect combination!

Aberystwyth has given me so much over my time here and so the opportunity to give something back through this role is something I am really grateful for. I chose to stand for the role as I have been very involved with this side of the Students’ Union during the last three years. I joined the Netball club as soon as I arrived and was elected Social Secretary and later President, so have experience in running student-led clubs and societies, hopefully meaning that I can be a good link for those in this position in the coming year. I love and have been involved in all of the events that the Student Union put on and am excited about being a bigger part in them.

I'm really looking forward to the challenge and working with current students in helping to make the student experience in Aberystwyth the best it can be!
