Tiffany speaks up about the Students' Union Officer Elections at Sheffield

Hi there it's Tiffany again! I'm a Student Ambassador for Hong Kong and you can find out more about me on my profile.

As you might know, the University of Sheffield's Students' Union is rated number one in the United Kingdom. With excellent service and support to students, we also get the chance to choose our student officers as the Students' Union is run and lead by students! So once again,  here comes the student officer elections.

Each year, students of the University of Sheffield can vote for all of the eight student officers representing them in running the Union, These roles include the President, Activities officer, Development officer, Education officer, International officer, Welfare officer, Women officer and Sports officer.

As one of my friends was  running for the Sports officer role, I had the chance to support her campaign. Although she did't win in the end, it was a really great and fun experience!

Apart from having to create a manifesto and do internet promotion for themselves, the candidates would have face-to-face campaigning to do, which includes promoting themselves in front of the Students' Union building or even going to student villages to speak with students. There's a lot of work that they have put in the election campaigns.

Voting is very important no matter who your choice is as you're choosing who will be representing you the next year. Congratulations to all the candidates and elected officers!

To everyone else, get the vote up and get yourself involved next year!
