President Joanna Siewierska
My name is Joanna, and I'm your SU President. I come from Poland originally and I grew up around Coolock, on the north side of Dublin. I've been involved in the student movement for almost 6 years now, so I'm really excited for the year! I've also just finished studying Law and Social Justice, so I have a great passion for human rights and equality.
I am looking forward to working with the team to improve your experience in UCD and ensure you have access to the supports that you need. The Union also provides opportunities to get involved in campaigns that are important to you, make friends and get the most out of your time in here.
UCD is a massive University, but it's made up of hundreds of communities of students and staff that are incredibly welcoming and caring. Join a society or sports club that looks interesting, get involved in events with your peer mentors and class reps and take your time with settling in. Everything will be alright, and we are always here to support you!
