Neurodivergent Students' Officer
Get to know Sam
What I Study
I study 'International social and public policy'. I hope my work in the LSESU can be the opportunity to really apply the abstract, academic coursework and make meaningful change, here and now for my fellow students!
How I was involved with LSESU before becoming an officer
I have engaged with LSE democracy a lot in 2021. In January and February, I designed, launched, and passed my own motion to establish the Neurodivergent officer position - and I got elected in April with 920 votes!! (Uncontested, but lets not dwell on this) I also held a neurodiversity week in my department last March - further neurodiversity activism is on its way. I perceived a lack of support & change for neurodivergents in LSE, so I decided to be that support & change.
What I’m looking to achieve this year
In my hustings, I stated that I want to stick dynamite underneath neurotypical complacency at LSE, and blow a hole in students' mind of what neurodiversity means. So watch out for my bombarding-of-visibility-campaigns as neurodivegent officer!
One tip for making the most out of LSE
If you sense a lack of support for students, and can't see any change at LSE to accommodate this, then please - be the change you desire!
