About me

Hi my name is Wen Chen, come from China. Apologies in advance that as a non-native speaker, it might take me more time to understand the meaning of what you said and need more time to think how to respond, probably sometimes need dictionary. But I’ll act as best as I can as a BAME Students’ PTO.

Why did you want to stand for this role?

Want to help students who might cannot easily adapt themselves to the university life. And want to widen my experience.

In election process, it’s my first time talking behind a live stream, I think I could done better but I still pride myself on having the bravery to do so.
