Charlotte Adams


Hey I'm Charlotte (she/her), your VP of Activities and Employability! Before coming into the role I was a LLB Law student. For a brief insight into who I am, I grew up in South Wales, I love rugby (obviously), and I have three doggos. I love London and the city life that I experience on a daily basis but a dream holiday for me is one that is surrounded by greenery and nature as I love nature walks and hikes. P.s. once you get me talking about how beautiful Welsh nature is you won't be able to get me to stop.

How I got involved in the SU

My SU journey started in September 2020, when I enrolled in my first year. Unfortunately COVID-19 made sure that we couldn't attend social events or meet people outside of our household. Thus over that year I knew of the SU but not much about what it could offer me as a student. On top of this, before coming to university I always felt I had a sense of belonging and a community but in my first year of university I didn’t feel much of it.

In my second year I saw that the Students’ Union were advertising nominations for a Part Time Officer (PTO) Role to represent students from different identities. One of these was the disabled students’ officer. I saw this as a chance to actively get involved, get my voice heard and hopefully make a positive change to the greater community at LSBU. I started my campaign and won and I then stayed in post for just over a year and a half until I ran for my current role as the VP. During my time as a I was able to run campaigns, in one of which I showcased disabilities in disability history month bringing awareness to the great achievements the disabled community has won fighting back an ableist society.

This is what drove me to run for the VP of Activities and Employability, I enjoyed representing the student body and I want to continue. I believe that there is more to university than just studying and during my time as a student I could see shortcomings where the university is failing to build a good sense of community and belonging to our students. Now in this role I have the power to influence and create change to give the students of LSBU a better university experience.
