“There are moments when you feel like your voice isn’t being heard and that the people who represent you don’t necessarily look like you or understand your issues…
So you can be the change you want to see and nominate yourself for the SU elections. By doing so you open a dialogue, you break down barriers and you keep the door open.
It’s important to have back representation because by doing that, things stop becoming just a black issue but a human issue.”
