International Students Sydney Turner

My name is Sydney, and I’m your International Student Coordinator! I’m a 19 year old final year student from San Francisco, California, studying Economics and Politics with International Relations.

I was a student ambassador for Education in Ireland, representing the United States in my 1st year of university, and will also be working as a Global Guide on campus this upcoming school year. I am passionate about being apart of the Student Union, as I know how essential it is for international students to be able to have assistance wherever needed. I want to help wherever possible, whether that be with answering questions regarding INIS appointments, ideas for the global lounge, or running events aimed at integration and celebrating diversity.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to me, I am always up for a cup of tea and a chat, and am here to assist you in getting the best out of your degree and time here as an international student at UCD!

LGBTQ+ Leighton Gray

Hey folks, my name is Leighton Gray and I'm your LGBTQ+ campaign coordinator! I have just finished a degree in sociology and English literature and am now undertaking a masters degree in gender studies.

I began to get involved in the union when I was elected auditor for UCD for Choice in 2017. Working with amazing people from all types of backgrounds for over a year through campaigns and events I helped to organise, eventually repealing the eighth amendment, was a defining experience. I am excited to work with you all again this year!

I have plenty of ideas, but am eager to hear yours. Please hit me up at any time with any suggestions; I look forward to hearing them. Ideas from everyone are more than welcome, no matter how you identify. Shoot me an email or follow lgbtucdsu on twitter or Instagram and send a message!

I am passionate about the environment and believe we can all do our bit, no matter how big or small. I am a big believer in equality and inclusion for all, and this year I hope to encourage and empower a greater participation for mature students across all aspects of college life at UCD.
