Niamh Elstone

Niamh Elstone. I am a student at the University of Exeter studying English Literature. At University I work with the Women in Business society as a FREP. This position is anextension of the committee where I assist in the organisation of promotional events and the advertisement of our society across campus in an effort to continuously increase the number of members and spread awareness of issues for women in the workplace. Furthermore, I am also on the committee for the student newspaper where I design the pages for the features section which discusses important current political issues. Through this position I practice editorial, proofreading, photoshop and InDesign skills. Externally to university I have been a member of the SAFE project which aims to increase mental health awareness in schools and create safe spaces for students to discuss sensitive issues. In terms of my work with Human Rights at Sea, it is very important to me to be able to contribute to such an important charity. The work done by Human Rights at Sea is crucial in highlighting many of the issues faced by seafarers all around the world, issues which quite often go unnoticed or unaddressed. I hope to bring my passion for helping others to my work at Human Rights at Sea and to bring my acquired skills from my many incredible experiences to the charity. My experience with gender equality, mental health awareness and now Human Rights at Sea projects has placed me in an excellent position to work in politics, governance or charity in the future.
