I am Sara Selim from Egypt, a placement student studying Economics and Finance.
I've been always interested in improving people's wellbeing, through providing the right guidance and tools. My main focus, alongside improving services at University, is making sure students are aware of all services and activities to improve their mental health and academic experience.
Study Buddy Portal
Creating a portal where students can find a course mate to study with. Students can find their study buddy depending on several criteria, such as studying method, grades, accommodation, etc. This will be a useful tool to help students support one another, facilitate the learning process and make new friends.
Weekly Therapeutic Sessions
Providing weekly workshops to teach simple techniques that help students deal with anxiety, stress and negative thinking. Organizing weekly sessions such as art therapy, music therapy and mindfulness-based therapy to help students deal with their struggles and express themselves in creative ways.
Healthier Meal Options
Increasing availability of healthy wholesome meals at affordable prices. Providing fluids and healthy snacks in the library during exam times.
