What I Study
Second Year BA Social Anthropology with French.
why i became disabled students pto
After being diagnosed with non-visible disabilities in my second year, I became involved in the conversation about disabled students at LSE. I quickly realised not enough was being done for us: inclusion plans weren’t being respected, the infrastructure and social life was not accessible. That’s why this year, I will represent disabled students to build a community and campaign for better support.
What I’m looking to achieve this year
As your Disabled Students’ Officer, I will:
- Build a community of disabled students at LSE:
- Through regular and inclusive social events,
- Active social media platforms,
- A team of disabled students dedicated to improving disabled students’ experiences at LSE
- Promote understanding of students’ experiences with disabilities and mental health through
- Regular on-campus and online drop-ins,
- Mental Health Weeks
- Disability Awareness Weeks
- Campaign for visibility and inclusion across the LSE and the SU
- To prioritise disabled students and support inclusion plans
- Improve signage and facilities, such as rest spaces
- Collect feedback across LSE and the SU
