Your Voice

Students' Union, first floor

Hey friends! I’m Willow, your new Vice-President Welfare & Diversity. I grew up in Malaysia and Singapore. At the age of 17, I started my degree in BA English and Philosophy at Royal Holloway. Since then, I have served as your International Students’ Representative – I have organised events focusing on international LGBTQ+ rights, as well as the effects of Brexit on our student body. As your VP Welfare & Diversity, I aim to make our campus a truly welcoming community, where all students can celebrate their diverse identities, and raise their voices to make a real positive change on campus.

In my role, I’ll be…

  1. Working to improve the safety of student houses.
  2. Standing up for students’ welfare in terms of lobbying the college to provide free printing credits for everyone.
  3. Collaborating with our student representatives to create stronger network and support for BME, LGBTQ+, international, mature, and disabled students.
  4. Representing minority students’ view at meetings with the College, local community and at a national level.
  5. Available for all students to seek advice on issues affecting their general well-being.

How to contact me...

I'm located in the open plan office upstairs in the Students' Union. I’m available every day from 3pm to 4:30pm for a chat, or you can also get in touch via email
