The rest of 2009 – being a student!

Posted by Tobin Webb on February 1, 2010

After a series of months packed full of activity with NUS, I took a bit of a back seat for a few weeks as I reminded myself that I was still a student… Masters deadline looming, I put my head down and I got it done. By mid-December “Notes in the Margins: African-American Music, Race and the American Cinema” was complete and handed in. After seven years, finally my student days are over… Honestly, the debt I have now as a result is really frightening, especially the “real” debt incurred by taking out bank loans to fund post-graduate study. Couldn’t have graduated at a worse time really – since finishing as President at UBU, I am still yet to find full time employment, and believe me I am looking hard! It’s really tough, but it only proves to galvanise me to fight event harder for NUS in 2010 as we focus our efforts on putting students near the top of the agenda for the general election.
