Jess Hindley (She/Her)
I’m Jess, your Student Officer for Welfare. I studied an MA in Conflict Transformation and Social Justice here at Queen's after completing my undergraduate in Politics at Lancaster University.
As a student activist, I worked on several campaigns including a successful rent strike in Lancaster that saved students over £1000 on their rent. Since coming to Belfast, I have continued my housing activism and have been actively involved with the abortion rights movement.
The role of a welfare officer is broad, including housing, safety, and wellbeing. I will bring my experience fighting for students to this role so that I can lead impactful campaigns on issues that matter to you.
My top three priorities for the year are:
- Drug Harm Reduction
- Creating a Consent Culture at Queen's
- Fighting for Student Renters
