I feel that I would be a perfect fit for the role as Student Council as I am passionate, dedicated and determined to empower other student Paramedics and future students to become Paramedics and help shape the next generation of healthcare professionals. I feel that my background as a BAME student would inspire more people within the BAME community to participate in the College of Paramedics and hopefully encourage more of the BAME community to enrol into the role of becoming a Paramedic as well as the wider community of Healthcare Professionals. I have first-hand seen the disadvantages of having a hidden disability and being a BAME student regarding physical contact with patients as well as essay required modules. I am conscious of how this can affect confidence levels and change the whole experience for a student at university.
Unfortunately, when I started university, I was a student during, COVID. Due to this I am aware of how challenging it was to study solo, with no previous experience of this level of study, not meeting any lectures face to face for the first year, all lectures and exams via zoom and having to write essays with a lack of support. Has made me more resilient and helped shaped me as Student Paramedic.
