What have you enjoyed most about volunteering with the Students' Union so far?
"My favourite bits of the volunteering with the union freshers' were learning more about the student union work and services available. Participating in the online meetings was good for meeting people and talking about my own experiences. I've enjoyed working with the union staff. They're friendly and professional."
What have you gained from your volunteering?
"I gained experience with running online meetings. I have improved my public speaking skills and I feel more confident participating in other activities at the Uni."
