Sofia Ruiz
For the past year, I have been fortunate enough to be President of Colombian society. I have learnt so much about the role and the challenges it brings and I hope to continue learning and improving in the following year if I am lucky to get elected again!

A bit about me... I am currently a second-year chemistry with maths student undertaking an MSci, who is both Colombian and English. Both Colombian and English culture has made me the person who I am now.

I was very fortunate to have moved to the UK 5 years ago where I was fully exposed to both cultures. I am now able to understand their differences and similarities and the ways on how to connect both of these cultures and hence have a greater understanding of the richness Colombia has and the happiness its traditions bring to people who learn, and experience it.

My goal as president is to continue showing people from other cultural backgrounds what Colombia has to offer. I hope to provide more online talks and interactive events like our empanada cook along and as the COVID situation in England starts to improve, offer events where Colombia´s dancing culture and music could shine through and we could all have a lot of fun together!

Espero que todos estén muy bien y muchas gracias por darme la oportunidad de ser presidente este año, espero que pueda hacerlo otra vez!

Best wishes xo
