As some of you may be aware the #ThisGirlCan campaign was something we got very into here at the SU. The campaign itself is about getting more women involved in the provision of sport and overcoming some of the barriers that many women face when it comes to starting something new like a joining a club or simply just going to the gym for the first time.
For as long as anyone here, in the Students’ Union, and Students themselves can remember it has been a high priority for the Activities Officer (currently one of mine) to do something about the dreaded Sporty Card.
Activities Week and Freshers’ Week were pretty crazy so that is why it is only now that I am writing/posting this blog I promised you all a long, long time ago!
So, blog number 2! This one is going to be more about how I have found it being in the job, since I’ve started in July to now. It’s normal thing for anyone entering a new job to find it daunting and scary; becoming Activities Officer was absolutely no different to that!
A blog about my experience of Activities Week in my first year.
