With the new Student Leaders being announced later today Radar interviewed the current Raising and Giving (RAG) Chair Nnenna Agbasonu to tell of her experiences in the role:

 

What made you apply for the RAG role and what kind of things has it involved for those who aren’t sure what you do within the union?

It was actually the Ex-President of Education and Welfare named Dami who made me run for the position. I had already been part of the union volunteering and partaking in the NUS conferences etc. RAG stands for raising and giving and what RAG does is help raise money for charities throughout the year. We are part of the union and rely heavily on the students as volunteers to achieve successful fundraising events.

 

Why should students run for this role and what benefits has the role given you personally?

If students are currently volunteering and working alongside the union or fancy working for the charity sector this role would be the best practice and experience. For other reasons just go for it! Any student can run for the role.

 

What is your proudest achievement as RAG Chair?

Childreach INTERNATIONAL and the annual RAG Chair.

 

What are your plans for the oncoming year?

Study further and travel.

 

Why should people vote in the election?

If students want change for the student union, to improve the university and to listen to the voices of the students; then vote!

 

Voting closes today at 2pm with the winners being announced at 3pm.  Remember to have your say and vote here: https://www.rguunion.co.uk/elections/
