Chiara Menozzi


Welcome to QMU! I’m Chiara and I’m your Student President for 2020/21. My job is to help you make the most of your time at university by making sure that you always receive all the support you need and that your voice is heard at QMU.

But what does a Student President actually do..?

I work closely with the union staff team and the Board of Trustees to manage the Students' Union with the best interests of our students at heart. I also sit on various boards and committees within the university such as Court, Senate and the Student Experience Committee, to make sure that you are fairly represented in the university’s decisions and actions.

How can we make our voices heard..?

There are lots of ways for you to share your thoughts and ideas. You can speak to your Class Reps, your elected Student Officers, and attend our student feedback forums which take place throughout the year. You can also get in touch with me directly by email, on Facebook, or pop up to the SU office anytime, our door is always open!

Fiona Reid

Welfare Officer -

Hi, my name is Fiona and I’m a 3rd year Public Sociology student. Since coming to university I have been passionate about student welfare and helping my fellow students have the most positive experience possible. One of the aspects of student welfare that I feel is often looked over or not looked at in much detail is that of sexual health. My goal for this year is to create healthy dialogue surrounding the topic, as well as highlight students with disabilities, those from the LGBTQ+ community, as well as other minority groups. Mental health is also hugely important to me and I’d like to continue the amazing work of the previous Welfare Officer in raising awareness around issues that students are facing and create a safe environment to talk about them.

Please feel free to reach out to me at any time regarding student welfare, if you have ideas for a campaign, or if you just need someone to chat to!

Aasiyah Patankar

Communities Officer -

Hi, I’m Aasiyah, and I will be your Communities Officer for the coming year. I am currently in my fourth year of Nutrition and Food Science. Having been an officer this past year I was able to help represent and voice the opinions of my peers which only encouraged me to run for Communities Officer and to further represent the students of QMU. My main aim throughout the year will be to improve QMU’s presence within our community with focus on charity integration.


Emily Frood

Post-Graduate Officer -

Hi there! I'm Emily Frood, I'm a QMU Film and Media graduate, and I'll be starting my postgraduate in Digital Campaigning and Content Creation in September. Having spent the last two years of my undergraduate degree as the Equality and Diversity Officer for QMUSU, I knew that I wanted to continue to uplift underrepresented student voices within Queen Margaret. That's why this year I am so very keen to make sure that postgraduate students are given the time for their concerns to be heard.

Something not up to scratch? Have an idea to help create a cohesive and inclusive environment for postgraduate students? Get in touch with me!
