Hi, my name is Fifi, and I’m your RUSU Education Officer for this year. I have just graduated from my degree in Primary Education with Art specialism. While I was at Uni, I was a course rep and school rep, as well as being President of the Women's Rugby Club. I am really excited to work for the union this year, and look forward to seeing lots of you around soon!
