Ria Bhandari
Hi, I'm Ria and I wish to run for the Social Secretary position at the UCL Harry Potter Society.
Firstly, I'm completely obsessed with the HP universe. I've read the books multiple times, can recite all the movies word to word, and can answer every single trivia question there is, even the most detailed ones. I'm a Ravenclaw, and I stand by our motto 'wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure' - woman's, in my case. I had the opportunity to watch the Cursed Child play in London last year, and it was the most magical experience I've ever had! In quarantine, I painted the lyrics to the 'Harry Potter in 99 Seconds' song on my wall.
As for why I'm running for the Social Secretary:
I'm experienced at running social media pages, having run the school magazine (not the Quibbler lol) Instagram page and Discord server last year. I also had Harry Potter textpost and meme page on Instagram; which is directly related to the position I wish to apply for. I have fresh ideas for the HPSoc Instagram page, and how it can be made more appealing to fellow Potterheads. If elected, I plan to create a House-based theme on Instagram and post regularly, creating fun and visual posters for multiple events. The Discord server can also be made more navigable, which I plan to work on!
I'm creative, passionate, witty, and work best in a team, especially a team of Potterheads. I hope to be elected to the committee and bring my best interests to the table. Thank you!
