Tell us a bit about yourself, your role and your time at Queen Mary
Hey guys, my name is Jovani, and I am your incoming Vice President of Humanities and Social Sciences! I studied Accounting and Management and only recently graduated here from Queen Mary. I have enjoyed my time actively involved in societies, as well as having an active part in improving student experience as a Course Rep.
Favourite spot on any of our campuses?
I would definitely say that my favourite spot is the Multi-Faith Centre. It's the spot I go to daily, and it has always been my stress get away and something which calms my mind, body and mood, and has been doing so for my time here at Queen Mary University!
If you could recommend one thing the students union offers for students to get involved in, what would it be?
I'd say check out relevant societies that you would be interested in joining as it's always good to find like-minded individuals so that you can help/rely on each other for good times whilst you go through this university experience.
Top study tip?
I guess everyone works a bit differently and some advice may work for many but not work for others but a personal study tip would be to check out lecture and seminar content in advance so you have an idea of what's going to happen in the session and can plan accordingly.
Tell us about a hobby you do and why you love it
One thing I really enjoy is keeping fit, whether that be through my home gym workouts, training in combat sports, or playing basketball and football. This is something I really enjoy doing because it allows me to let out any suppressed energy that I may have, as well as using it as a tool to rest my mind away from work and other things on my mind, and of course keeping my body fit. Always improving in what I do allows me to want to keep on doing it.
What's one thing at Queen Mary that you couldn't live without?
I'd say the friends that I've made on my journey here at Queen Mary, they always cheer up, make me laugh, and there's a lot more to say but I don't want to go on for too long...
What's your ideal day out in London?
Going to Baker Street and heading to Regent’s Park to meet my friends, talk, hang out and usually go get some food at Taco Bell which I always enjoy a bit of. After we eat, we do need to burn off a bit of those calories so getting a Santander Bike usually helps. I’m extremely competitive so this usually turns out to be a race... We then need to get some rest so go and watch the ducks whilst under the shade. Round it all up with a cheeky Krispy Kreme's or Dunkin Donuts and call it a day.
What's a piece of advice you'd give to students?
I would like to say that you should be yourself and be the best version of yourself and do not feel the need to change your personality to fit in!
If you could have one superhero power, what would it be?
Freeze time so I could catch a bit more sleep before I head off to work!
What are you most looking forward to this year?
I am looking forward to meeting all of you! Hearing your ideas, working together and ensuring that you take advantage of the little time that you have at Queen Mary so that you can be ready to take on anything that comes your way in the future.
