I have been an active member of the Bridge Soc for 2 years and have been playing bridge for 4 years by now. I am currently admin for the UCL Bridge Soc Facebook group and have help organized several online bridge sessions during the lockdown. If this global pandemic ends before the next academic year, I will ensure that we can play the game face to face in a social environment. More importantly, I will do my best to organize a variety of social and competitive events with other Universities across the UK. Teaching sessions will also be available for those new to bridge or those who would like to advance their skills further.
On the other hand, if the current situation continues and we are unable to play face to face, I will make sure that the online community stays active, and organize weekly online sessions. The Society also has connection with several Bridge related associations, so we can enter online competitions arranged by them as well.
Futhermore, I firmly believe that the most precious aspect of Uni societies is the social element, where you get to meet people from a variety of background, all doing very different degrees. Therefore, I promise I will make every effort to ensure a friendly and relaxed atmosphere inside the society, where people can socialize if they want to, or just enjoy the game of bridge itself if they are the quite-type.
Lastly, I would like to thank you for your time, and your vote would be very much appreciated.

Hi! I'm Ivy, a ten-year Contract Bridge lover. I have established a Bridge Club with my peers at high school where we played Bridge once a week and taught both students and teachers how to play it. I believe this type of experience is useful when I popularise Bridge at UCL. In 2020, my team won championship during U20 China National Online Contract Bridge Competition. The Bridge professionals I encountered inspired me to enhance my Bridge skills further and I wish I could lead all society members to do so together. Hence, I am running for the position of the Bridge Society President.
Unlike current unprecedented circumstance, I plan to organise face-to-face Bridge games next year so that new beginners would learn Bridge while actually touching Poker cards. To immerse them in the atmosphere where the other students demonstrate Bridge playing is in my perspective the quickest way for them to fall in love with Bridge. Meanwhile, I hope to hold activities more frequently, allowing flexibility for amateurs to play Bridge either online or in person. Whether I am successful or not in the election doesn't affect my passion towards Bridge. Look forward to see you all in Bridge Society!
