My name is Noemi Llamas-Gomez, and I am standing for Postgraduate Convenor (Arts). I am a second year PhD student in Hispanic Studies at the SMLC, but you will probably know me as the girl who serves (decent) coffee at the Gilchrist.
I have now been seven years at Glasgow as a student and one as a member of the Hospitality Services, so I have a thorough knowledge of the behind-the-scenes of the university. I used to sit in the Women’s Basketball Club committee as an undergrad, so I have always been involved in improving the students’ experience. I believe that combining work and study at this level has provided me with the necessary experience to represent the College of Arts postgraduates, a very particular community within university.
I want to be an active voice within the Gilchrist, and bring all your suggestions and concerns on board. A more developed booking system for the booths, as well as better food choices, and an upgrade on hot drinks are my top priorities. I also want to raise awareness of the Gilchrist amongst Arts PGRs – it is our space too, and we have a unique chance to use it.
