Your President represents your voice to the University and at a national level.

Ancha Joof, President


A little bit about me

I arrived at UWL back in 2016 as a Hospitality Management and Food Studies student. Signing up to the netball team and the afro- Caribbean society during my first Freshers Fair was an absolute game changer! From this moment on, my experience just got better and better. I was able to find out about all the amazing things the SU do for their membership and this inspired me to run for a sabb position.

Manifesto aims

I will be carrying on building my BAME leaders’ network (ACE) The Network offers UWL students leadership skills like Public speaking, networking skills, these are just a few of the amazing things I have planned for students. I will be working on making sure students with additional needs get the help and support they need and I’m also looking at the teaching quality and trying to enhance the UWL offering.

What I’m hoping to achieve this year

I am very excited to be representing your voices on university and national level.

This year I’m working with my Amazing Sabb team Alessio and Stella and we are all committed to making sure that you have the best time at UWL and also that you’re supported, and your voices are heard.  I am also very keen on equipping students with leadership skills which they can take into the jobs when they graduate and become more confident. I also want to improve the processes for any students trying to access additional help and resources while they are studying at UWL.

Please get in contact with us if you have any questions or comments, we are here for you guys and I look forward to seeing you around campus.

What I love about UWLSU

The SU is so Brilliant! They are an amazing organisation, every single person who works there are really passionate about students and always puts the students experience first. I really encourage you to get involved with the SU, they are here to help you on your journey to success.
