Hi everyone, I’m Holly and my elected position is AU and Sport Officer. My role is to ensure students are engaging in sports and physical activity, in both competitive and non-competitive ways. I also hold the position of AU president in which I look after all the sports teams within the Athletic Union.

I studied mathematics at Keele before being elected as AU & Sport Officer at the Students’ Union. As a student, I also did rugby. In my spare time I also enjoy pretending to be indie; drinking Red Stripe and listening to alternative bands . My favourite band is The 1975 or Everything Everything!

Talk to me about:

  • Athletic Union Clubs
  • Physical Activity
  • Healthy Lifestyles

Amy: My first summer as an elected officer



Hi team!

Welcome to my first blog post, of which I hope there will be many over the next year that I'm representing you.

It's been just over 2 months of being Keele's AU and Sport Officer, and a lot has happened in that time. 

Day one came and went in a flash, but we talked briefly about how KeeleSU is run and how we as elected officers fit into the picture. Day two (three and four) we were thrown into the deep end by going to an event at the Birmingham NEC ran by NUS called SU18. I really didn't know what to expect - but it was great fun, and I picked up lots of ideas from other Student Unions and Sabbs that clearly knew what they were talking about! Day five, we were back at Keele. With the help from the student voice team, it felt like we could wind down from the first week, put our thoughts in order, learn what is excepted from us and the different 'hats' we have to wear in our role.

The next week was just as busy. Monday was learning how to be effective in our role, which was basically how to be effective in life - what you put in is what you get out, make sure you ask questions and networking is great! Tuesday and Wednesday I went to the BUCS conference at UWE, where I met lots of sports sabbs (the best sabbs) and talked about eve rything sport! Thursday I graduated which involved mixed emotions. It was sad because it was the end of my student life and the last time I'd see a lot of people that I normally see every day, but excited and happy about what the next chapter holds and still being able to enjoy Keele for at least another year!
The last few weeks of July and the majority of August I was busy in lots of different training days and important meetings which was, quite frankly, very overwhelming but I've just about survived! It's now the start of September (I have no idea where the summer has gone) and it's almost move in day for everyone to come back and I'm very excited! I've met a lot of new students already, at several pre-arrival events, from international to mature to disabled students. It's amazing to see how different each person is but that we all play a part in making Keele great.
