My name is Blake, my pronouns are they/them, and I am your Community Officer for 22/23!
My role is to represent you on community matters such as housing, equality and diversity, and mental health. I am really excited to work with you to change our Students' Union (SU) and University for the better!
My first involvement with the SU was as campaign officer of the LGBT+ D&S (Diversity and Support) Group during my second year at the university. Last year, I continued as external co-chair for LGBT+ along with co-chair of DAG (Disabled Action Group). I represented both of these groups in LibNet (Liberation Network) and D&S Exec, and was the DAG representative and chair of SUmmit.
For the most part, I have really enjoyed all of these roles and they have certainly helped me feel belonging within our university community. I think it is so important that these opportunities are accessible to everyone and I can't wait to work together to make our time at Bath the best it can be!
I have studied at Bath for three years – I switched courses after my first year and have just finished my second year of a BSc in Politics with Economics. I have a two year old bearded dragon called Pepper. I drink lots of tea and enjoy baking!
