The purpose of the UWA Student Guild is to represent the students of the university and fight for their best interests. However, far too often, obstacles such as infighting, cronyism, and partisan agendas plague student representation, hindering their ability to stand up for students. I strongly value equality and fairness, and that one of the jobs of the Guild is to look out for students from all walks of life and make sure that their university experience is enriching for all of them. It is my vision that the UWA Student Guild of 2023 will put aside petty politics and come together to do what they were elected to do, because at the end of the day, all of us as UWA students are in this fight together to improve student culture and the university.
