An aspiring barrister has been elected President of Kingston Universityâ€™s Studentsâ€™ Union. Jonathan Chibafa, 21, has taken over from outgoing President Arvinder Marwaha.
Originally from Zimbabwe, Jonathan is a former President of the Universityâ€™s Law Society. He hopes to attend Bar School once he has completed his year-long term heading the Studentsâ€™ Union.
Top of Jonathanâ€™s agenda is a response to the recommendations on top-up fees included in the White Paper on the Future of Higher Education. He also wants to develop an even closer working relationship with University staff and encourage more students to get involved in Union activities.
â€œMy past experience has taught me the most effective way to strive for change is to work from within. I have been given a fantastic opportunity and I will try to made a real difference for students at Kingston,â€ Jonathan said.
