Amy Hickman
Having joined the society in this year of virtual events, I am well aware of how integral social media has become in getting information out about the society. I would aim to carry on the great work already being done to promote events and support the other members of the committee, keeping up a consistent social media presence to encourage even more engagement. With Facebook going out of style with incoming freshers – some who now have to download it purely for Uni - I would ensure to carry on the shift towards adding more information about events to Instagram.

I also consider myself a creative person and so would create eye catching social media posts and promotional videos. I am a fast learner, can be relied upon and would work well as a team with other committee members.

At the end of the day, I would love to get more involved within the society and being on the committee next year would be a great opportunity for me to do that!

I enjoy social media and try my hardest to use my own personal platforms to raise awareness for topics I am passionate about, and also just enjoy taking photos! In sixth form I was part of the student magazine, frequently writing articles about topics of interest (black lives matter, mental health and LGBTQ+) and also helped with the photography aspect of the magazine.
Last year, whilst unwell with an eating disorder, I had an Instagram account raising awareness for this which ended up having quite a large following (I deleted the account for personal reasons sorry!).
I want to play a part in encouraging future first years to join RUMSBC, because amidst this strange first year I can honestly say the boat club has been the highlight! I would love to use my experiences with social media to do this :)

The pandemic has highlighted the importance of online resources in ensuring that everyone is included and well-informed. I would really love to get to know the members of RUMSBC more, whilst making an active contribution to the club. As a media and comms officer, my priority would be generating content that is creative, engaging and to-the-point.

Hi guys! I’m Thiara and I’m running to be your Media and Comms!

I have been a member of RUMSBC for two years and have a strong understanding of the club. I understand that social media is essential communication between the club and its members and would continue to promote our events in an exciting and welcoming manner.

I have experience in running an Instagram for a society, having been the publicity manager for Anatomy and Art Exhibition 2021. I am familiar with software such as canva and am able to quickly whip up a professional post or story. However, I also understand the dedication this role requires as the club social media needs to be continuously maintained and is essential communication for new members especially. Because I will be in my third year, I can promise that I will have the time to dedicate to this role. I am also artistic and would enjoy the creative space.

My ambition would be to maintain and build on the outstanding achievements by Millie in making our club more welcoming to freshers. I would repeat posts that explain how the club works from committee members. I would also love to do some fun stories to introduce non-committee members of our society, so that we can all feel involved. As I appreciate the changes that have been made to improve inclusivity, I would ensure that our social media accurately represents our values within RUMSBC.

Thank you and I hope to have your vote!
