Hello I am Cathryn Stocker, I am currently studying Geography and International Relations and I am in my first year. I have multi- disabilities including dyspraxia and I also suffer from anxiety. It is for this reason that I am passionate about making the welfare of Exeter University students as good as it can be and I believe through being a Liberation Councilor I can achieve this. I have already represented Exeter University Students holding the position of NUS Disability Representative and am currently trying to set up a Disability Society. I am also passionate about diversity at Exeter, and I want to work with others to set up a new stereotype for Exeter. One of strength in diversity. I will listen to your concerns, and help to improve both the welfare and your student experience at Exeter.
What I will do
It is time that disabled people on campus got their chance to be heard. From there not being enough AccessAbility rooms in the library, to staff not recording their lectures- there are problems that are stopping disabled people from having the best experience possible at University. I am passionate about raising the profile of disability and mental health on campus allowing all students the chance to have the best time at University and from there to be the support in place in order for us to do that.
