Hannah is the Student Chair of Curriculum, Engagement and Studies at the Coatbridge Campus.
She works with key staff members to ensure students have the best possible academic experience, and oversees the classroom representation system, will lead campaigns and focus on issues related to learning and teaching. .
The 20-year-old from Coatbridge studied makeup for four years at NCL, after meeting speaker Rosheen McGowan as part of the Schools Partnership Program.
She said Lanarkshire Live: âI am convinced that I can take on this role thanks to my experience at NCL and its school program. “
Alexandra takes on the role of Student President of the Enduring Partnership and is based at the college’s Motherwell campus.
She leads the development of a range of clubs and societies and works to broaden the sense of community at the college and in the role it plays in the local community.
The 24-year-old, originally from Spain and now living in Glasgow, completed HNC and HND music at NCL’s Motherwell campus after being introduced to the college through his partnership with Glasgow Music Studios.
Alexandra said: âI have always been very inspired by student movements from different parts of the world. They made me realize how much we can have a positive impact on society.
“With the different crises affecting us – COVID-19, climate change, humanitarian issues – I felt compelled to help change and I thought a good starting point was within my own student association. . “
Meanwhile, Kellyann is the Student Resource and Wellness Chair and is a student at the Cumbernauld campus.
She strives to uphold NCL’s equality and diversity policy and improve the representation and engagement of under-represented groups.
Kellyann will focus on health and wellness issues including accessibility, travel, mental health, student finances, student support, release and equality.
The 41-year-old, from Airdrie, added: “I was a class representative and faculty representative during my studies and really enjoyed listening to students, helping people and advocating for students to ensure we all have a positive experience.
“I think it’s just a continuation of the same great and really important work.”
