Nicole Sibanda


My name is Nicole and I am a 1st year Medical Science student. I am also a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community which is why this role is very important to me. I stand for what I believe in and I choose to exist loudly and unapologetically. I consider myself to be a cheerful, open-minded, and jolly individual that is very approachable but also sassy at heart - so if you ever need advice or a simple friendly chat, I am your girl. 

If I am elected to be a LGBTQ+ officer, I plan on raising awareness and promoting events like Pride Month and LGBTQ History Month that help us reflect on the progress we have made towards equality but also to acknowledge that there is still much more to be done. I also plan on getting as many students involved in the LGBTQ+ community at DSU. I will also have your best interests at heart when engaging with the Union and Society to ensure that students know they have someone in their corner fighting to provide the best university experience. I believe I will be a good asset to the team and a good role model to fellow students.

Here's to sprinkling rainbow coloured confetti and hopes to never be silenced or labelled. Like in the words of Halas Prod - "Love is too beautiful to be hidden in a closet."
