"The opportunity to represent your cohort or your demographic! I was an LGBT+ Officer for two years, and it was the best experience I've ever had, it's so easy to gain transferable skills that you can pop onto your CV! The Student Voice team do an amazing job getting your voices heard by the people who need to be listening!"
