Course: BSC Applied Bioscience with Forensic Investigation

Campus: Paisley

Political Icon or Role Model and Why: Jon Gnar - He was a comedian who became a politician as a joke. he formed the 'Best Party' in Iceland.

Why are you a member of the SNP / What would you like the Party to achieve:  I used to hate politics. This was mainly due to the lack of action or visible results from debating, campaigning etc. It can feel hopeless. However, since moving here (Scotland) I feel that there is hope and visible action. The things that the SNP have accomplished are numerous and all towards a more social and community-based perspective. I was also very drawn to the strong female figures involved that I have met personally. They get things done. lastly, Nicola Sturgeon and her straightforward and witty approach was something I highly admire.
