Hi, my name is Julia and I’m your Education Officer!
I’m originally from Russia, but I grew up in Oxfordshire. For the past three years, I’ve been studying maths here at the University of Bath and now I’m looking forward to a year of representing you and making sure that your voice gets heard.
During my time at Bath, I’ve been a peer mentor, a V-team project leader and I’m also a Gold Scholar. In my final year, I became an Academic Rep, which I really enjoyed (especially the free pizza). And that was how I ended up getting involved in the SU.
It was in an Academic Council, in February of 2022, that I heard that nobody was running for the position of Education Officer. I was surprised to hear about this but also relieved. I had wanted to become an SU Officer since my first year, but I let my nerves get to me and convince me that there would be someone else better for the role.
The nominations were reopened, and I was lucky enough not only to run but to win the position, which was the first time I’d ever won anything. And now that I’ve started, I know that I should never have doubted myself, because I’ve never been more excited about anything.
I can’t wait to work with you to make our university better!
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or ideas :)
