Don’t vote for any Lewis. Vote for your Lewis

Hi, my name is Lewis. Lewis Martin, not Martin Lewis, not Capaldi and certainly not Hamilton. But I am THE Lewis; a fresher, studying politics and running to be your Shadow Councillor.

Having spent a term in The UK Youth Parliament, I am already experienced in, and passionate about, giving a voice to those most often ignored. 
As we freshers are new to this place, the guild and its systems can be puzzling, We cannot allow this to cast us out. If you elect me, I will ensure it doesn’t.
As we shall shape the face of Exeter University in the coming years, it is imperative our voices are heard loud and clear.

It’s my passion to stand up for communities. Previously, for example, I organised and participated in ‘Battle of the Bands’ events where I stood up and raised a total of £2,000 for local hospitals. Therefore, in standing up before, I believe I am the one to stand up AGAIN; for our community and society.
Despite only being here for 2 weeks, I’ve already joined a range of societies (from Politics to Grecian Soc.). Including Darts society, which has given me experience of the guild first hand. I can be the one to hit the bullseye on Student issues!
Thank you for reading my manifesto, hopefully I have convinced you.

Don’t vote for any Lewis, Vote for your Lewis
