Hannah is currently in her second term as a sabbatical officer at Ulster University’s students’ union covering campaigns and communications. She is also studying for a degree in social policy. After spending a year as the only woman in an officer team of seven,  she realized that more needs to be done to offer opportunities to get women engaged in both university and outside life. She ran her Women in Leadership campaign across the four campuses of Ulster to show women how to get involved during education and also after graduation.  She is now an Athena Swan champion and is hoping to get more women across Northern Ireland engaged as well as create safe spaces for them to speak up about issues they are facing during her term as Women’s officer.
