Why might a student be interested in becoming a Student Ambassador for No Panic?
-  They may be looking for an opportunity to make a positive difference in their spare time by raising awareness of the support available from the charity to students living with anxiety-related disorders. They may have personal experience of an anxiety disorder and be passionate about ensuring others feel empowered and informed enough to seek the support they need. This could be their own experience or exposure to the experiences of a friend or family member.
-  They could be drawn to this by the opportunity to gain experience that could be helpful when exploring future employment opportunities (e.g. in the charity sector, in communications)
-  They may also welcome the opportunity to make connections and share experiences with other student ambassadors across the UK

3.     Access to further volunteering or fundraising opportunities with the charity. E.g.

They may also wish to seek valuable opportunities to share their experiences more formally with other students e.g. some universities offer opportunities for people to share their lived experience with students on relevant courses.
