Self description

Female , 41

I have been working for NUS since 2004. Prior to that I have worked in the charity and government sector. Due to a mildly turbulent childhood I have first hand experience of some of the social problems facing many young people today including poverty, barriers to accessing education and social exclusion.

Life experiences


Anything that affects students on a day to day basis including health, housing, finances and debt. My expertise is focused on Scottish systems

Public affairs

Inlcuding lobbying, evidencing your arguements and how to go about gaining support for your cause


Having worked for a grant making organisation and now as a volunteer assessor of grant applications in the charity sector, I am familiar with what works and does not work in applying to charitable funding sources

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I'm signing up as a mentor because I have a good range of knowledge and experience on a number of issues. I'd like to be able to help others to develop their own knowledge so that they can become better advisors to others in turn. Also, I think being a mentor will help me to understand what issues other people are encountering so that I can continue to develop my own skills.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
