Every three years, York University's Student Union holds a referendum on whether to remain affiliated with the National Union of Students.

HM Government's Policy School
Project/Team Leader (June 2022)
At University I took part in the Government's Policy School, working to develop new policy ideas in a short space of time and as a member of a team. Taking a leadership role became challenging when half of the group became unable to take part. I therefore had to delegate more carefully parts of our work and take on a heavy research role myself which I thoroughly enjoyed. As a group we overcame a number of these challenges and won the competition when we presented the policy to Civil Servants, Lecturers and other students.
