We are delighted to congratulate final year student Sadie Karia on winning an Outstanding Student Award!
This competitive award is part of the Bristol PLUS scheme, and recognises students who have made significant contributions in an extracurricular role or project. In Sadie’s case, she was presented with the Outstanding Award in Global Citizenship in recognition of her work in relation to student wellbeing. She was recognised for pioneering the first “It’s Ok to Fail” Wellbeing Week, and in particular organising the first “Welfare Fair” in her role as Welfare Representative for University of Bristol Dental School Society in 2019-2020. This week helped signpost people to available support, gave students and staff a chance to openly discuss Mental Health & Wellbeing and made students feel better understood and supported by the School.
The Award is very competitive and received many applications, and Sadie is to be heartily congratulated on this truly outstanding achievement and her work in supporting student wellbeing!
