Students’ Union Election Campaign
As a final year University student who had been hugely impacted by the opportunities provided by her Students’ Union, Emily decided to run in the elections to become Vice-President in 2012. Her campaign was successful and she served as Vice-President Societies and Individual Development from 2012-2013 and was re-elected President 2013-2014. Emily wrote these original lyrics to B.o.B’s ‘Airplanes’ song and directed this tongue-in-cheek campaign video. This video had UK-wide impact – raising the bar for multi-media campaigns in Students’ Union elections across the NUS network.
Open Mic UK Grand Finalists

As well as making up half the act, Emily was the director and producer of this campaign video that gained Em and Anna the support they required to get to the Grand Finals at London’s the O2.
