My name is Carla Gummerson, I am 33 and I am from Wicklow. I have a bachelor’s in social science and a master’s degree in public policy. I was the Auditor of the Mature Student Society for two years, during which I had the ability to gain great skills but most importantly I made some great friends. For the past year I have been your Graduate Officer and I am very thankful to have another year of helping and supporting UCD students. I will be putting on events for postgraduate students, support them with various academic issues, and I will be providing a PhD Conference Fund.
I am very excited about the year ahead. I cannot wait to reach out to students to guide and empower them during the year. If you ever need support or would like to see your graduate officer doing something specific like an event or campaign, please reach out by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
