Education Commissioner: Jacob Portelli
Jacob is a 22-year old student currently in his fourth year of the Bachelor of Laws degree. As an advocate of student activism, he is a strong believer in the ability of the students' voice to discuss sensitive issues, push forward debate and bring about change!
Throughout his years at University he has occupied the role of Events Officer, Public Relations Officer and President of the faculty based student organisation - Għaqda Studenti Tal-Ligi. Being able to speak to students, raise issues on a local level, debate current affairs and working with an energetic and determined team has led Jacob to continue on this journey and now to ultimately work for all students in his role as Education Commissioner within KSU for the year 2017-2018.
In 2013, Jacob represented Malta in the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellowship in America whereby he had the opportunity to meet and work with students from all around the world. This experience has helped him to develop certain skills and to better understanding and respect the different cultures and beliefs surrounding us.
Jacob is a firm believer of the potential the Education Commission has in bringing students together to tackle the problems we face today as well as future issues. By changing the structure of the way the commission works, creating focus and relevance for all Student Representatives and fostering both a professional and personal relationship with every representative will help this Commission grow and be proactive! Continuing on the strong foundations laid in previous years, Jacob wants to work within a team that will ultimately reach its potential and bring about great and important change!
