Hiya love! I’m Izzy Page your new Student’s Union President 2023/24, I’m a northern gal who decided to travel the furthest south for university and it’s definitely worth the 5 hour drive. I’m very bubbly, friendly and will chat your ear off…so you’re welcome! I’m a musical theatre kid and you can definitely tell when you meet me but there is more to me I promise, however you are likely to see me stealing the stage at karaoke. I’m very passionate about making everyone feel welcome and loved, I definitely have my mum to thank for that because our quote is “love is love”. I’m a bit obsessed with clothes and could open my own shop with how many I own so if you ever need to borrow something, head my way. 


What Course did you study? I have just graduated Musical Theatre (Cabaret) 


How did you get involved with the SU? Before running for President I Worked in both the SU bar and shop since my first year of Uni so I’m very familiar with how that runs and the values we stand for.
