In 280 characters or less, tell us a bit about yourself - I like to knit. I'm a native Irish speaker and a bit of a policy nerd. I've been passionate about fighting on issues like housing, mental health and consent in UCD since day one.

why have you put yourself forward for election?
I've seen firsthand the problems students face with housing, mental health and paying for college get worse year on year. We need to support individual students and fight for systemic change and that's what I want to do.

• What’s the things you love the most about UCD? The people. The students are what make UCD special, and always have. That's why it's so frustrating to see how the lack of support impacts student life.
• What’s your biggest problem with UCD? The cost. Of housing, of seeking help (unless you want to spend months on a waiting list), of actually completing your degree.

• What music have you got stuck on repeat? Would your playlist win or lose you votes?
Anything by MARINA. Whether it will win me votes is something I'll leave to the students.
• The world is a mental place at the moment and we could all use a laugh. Heard any good jokes recently?
What's the difference between a hippo and a zippo? One is very heavy and the other is a little lighter
