Hi, my name is Ebony Banks and I am the Vice-President here at Wrexham Glyndwr Students Union and Miss Wrexham 2019. I studied hospitality, tourism and events management here at WGU and will also be undertaking my master’s in Business Administration during my time in office.
I have been heavily involved with many aspects of the university since my first day here, this includes working with the marketing department, being a student ambassador, being a WGU insider, course rep, undergraduate representative for the learning, teaching and quality committee (LTQC) as well as being student council chair, all of which has given me a unique insight into the running of the university.
During my time as a Vice-President I hope to improve the lives of students in multiple ways. Firstly, I want to address mental health on campus by having regular animal therapy sessions, I also want to help improve the facilities such as the catering department to ensure a wide variety of healthy food and dietary requirements are catered to. Finally, I also want to hold the university accountable when assignment feedback is either late or inadequate.
The current president Kieran and I have an open door policy and love to engage with as many students as we can, so feel free to pop in and say hello either just for a chat or to see how we can help support you while you study here at WGU!
