I have held 4 leadership positions at UCL in the last 2 years: UCL Netball Events Sec, UCL Netball President, TeamUCL’s Sports Assistant and a Sports Rep on the Students' Union Activities Zone. As a result, I have significantly contributed to the organisation and development of sport at UCL and I would love the opportunity to continue this as your Sports Officer. I have a great insight into the running of the Students’ Union and what is expected of a Sports Officer at Activities Zone meetings. These positions also demonstrate my leadership, communication and organisational skills which are vital to this role.

I would:
• Support Presidents and Treasurers: organise group chats and welfare sessions to help with problems/questions/BUCS Play, encourage integration between clubs and to provide support during the most stressful periods.
• Advocate for more activities space on campus
• Encourage inter-club support: Use TeamUCL social media takeovers to promote your biggest games of the season
• Finance: Advocate for a) separate processes for more urgent event budget approvals/payments and b) the provision of up to date bank statements more frequently.
• Glittoris sports night: Continue this during pride in sport week and organise another in term 1.
• Organise a Women in Sport event
• #bleedpurpleandgreen: Help clubs to be more sustainable and encourage them to share their progress on their social media using this hashtag.

Despite being a first year, I have been participating in sports at a high-level for almost a decade, during which time I have taken a key role in the organisation of many sporting events at an international level. For two years, I worked to improve disabled accessibility to golf. I am currently working with the Union to integrate a new sport to BUCS and am in close contact with a local UCL alumni sports club.

This experience has led me to think that the following changes would benefit both players and committee members alike:

1. Improve inter-club bonding by organising more inter-society events. Let’s bring that intra-society solidarity to TeamUCL as a whole.
2. Better promotion of Varsity with improved advertising of all sports. This should include having a more active TeamUCL social media presence.
3. Creation of a new pan-London Olympic-style sports competition similar to Varsity but open to all London universities.
4. Enhance links between local sports clubs and TeamUCL.
5. If elected, I will continue to help smaller sports clubs to join competitive leagues such as BUCS or LUSL.
6. New, bigger, more accessible storage room for sport equipment.
