Hello from the new SSO
Hello! For those of you that don’t know me yet I am Mads. I’m the new Student Support Officer here at the Alliance of Pro-Life Students. I have just finished my Philosophy degree at Cardiff University where I also sat on the exec of Cardiff Students for Life society. Through this, I have seen the society in difficult times like the pro-choice motion we faced as well as making positive steps forward such as passing a Student Parent Support motion and leading the society to achieve Gold Tier status – the highest at Cardiff. Alongside this, I have been very actively involved in the Students’ Union and sat on the society committee that decides which societies affiliate and which do not.
I hope to use all of this experience to push forward on my predecessor, Jonny’s, work so that more pro-life students across the UK have their voices heard. In the coming days I will be contacting many of you to introduce myself again, see how your plans for the coming year are coming along as well as inviting you to our leadership training in September! Leadership Training will be one of my first events as SSO and, thanks to Jonny, Becky and the whole SSC (student support committee) it will be fantastic! There are lots of great workshops lined up that will really equip you to run your societies well and of course throughout the year I am always just a quick phone call or Facebook message away! I look forward to meeting you all properly in September, but I’m sure we will speak soon!
Yours in Life,
