The Candidates

View Manifesto

Vanieztia Inniss-Rose (V)

Hi, I’m Vanieztia! I’m running because having worked for the SU for the past three years, been on QM Netball committee, and Occupied the Octagon in protest of bursary cuts, I feel I have a unique understanding of the student body, and ideas to support and improve the student experience.

View Manifesto

Ruohan Wu

I came to the UK alone since I was 13. This offers advantages as a bilingual and strong understanding of mixed culture, especially in dealing with complex situations in studying and personal life. I will work for our students, together with the union to make our community better.
