Out with the old and in with the new, or something like that. Help us give a big Swansea Uni SU welcome to our 23/24 FTOs!
“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a Full Time Officer" - We're not sure which of our new FTOs said that, but it could have been any of them ...
What do your FTOs do?
The FTOs represent you. They're been elected by students, and are the voice for students - your FTOs are here to fight your corner!
By raising awareness of different issues, celebrating the diversity of our student body and standing up for students, the FTOs work together to ensure you have the best experience possible while at Swansea University.
Who are your FTOs?
President - Pablo Josiah
Passionate about social justice and encouraging others to achieve their goals & grow holistically, Pablo has previously worked at the university as a Student leader and is always eager to take on new challenges.
During my 2 years in Swansea, I've gotten involved in a lot with both the SU and the university, ranging from sports to social causes. When I'm not at the SU, you can find me on the dance floor in town or just chilling at home, watching movies or jamming to music with friends. I'm so excited to be your President for 2023/24 - I've got big things planned for the year ahead!
Education Officer - Michelle Okpala
Working with all 3 Faculties, over 350 Subjects and 33 School Reps, Michelle is here to make sure students have a voice in their education.
I studied business management at the university and in my last year, I had the privilege to work with the SU as the Black and minority ethnic officer. This gave me the opportunity to help represent the BME community and organize events, promoting the many opportunities that they could gain from being a student at Swansea University. I am really excited about my new role and cannot wait to represent you all.
Societies & Services Officer - Ronnie Kowalska
Ronnie will be supporting all of the SU’s societies, in addition to overseeing and having a say on the running of all of the Union’s services including JCs, Costcutter, Nursery and the Advice and Support Centre.
I'm very excited to start my role as Societies and Services officer! Let's make 23/24 the best year yet :)
Sports Officer - Megan Chagger
Overseeing the day-to-day functioning of all 56 sports clubs at Swansea University, as Sports Office Meg is a key point of contact between the Student Union and Sport Swansea, helping us collaboratively work on huge sporting projects like The Welsh Varsity.
I was Coach and then Captain of the Sirens over the last year, being awarded club of the year at the Sport Swansea Awards! Uni sports has made my time at Swansea, I don’t know what I would’ve done without it. Which is why I want to ensure every student has the same opportunities I did, and give back to the sports community at Swansea uni #bleedgreen
Welfare Officer - Abigail Egwuatu
Back for the second time, Abigail is driven by positive change and thrives on supporting students while working alongside Advice & Support.
I’m here to ensure our students feel supported, and to create the best university experience for all students. If you ever need to chat, please don’t hesitate to contact me. In my free time, you can catch me dancing, exploring mumbles and having a good time at Peppermint!
Welsh Affairs Officer - Macsen Davies
Croeso Macsen! Macs will be a familiar and friendly face if you've ever visited JCs. He's been employed as a student staff barista since starting University in 2020 - we can guarantee his top-tier coffee skills.
I’m so excited to be your new Welsh Affairs officer for this year. I’m really looking forward to creating a Welsh community here in Swansea and I’m super passionate about ensuring that every student has a Welsh experience while at university.
