Raquel Silva
Hi! My name is Raquel, I'm a 1st-year Computer Science student from Portugal and I’m excited to be running for the position of President of the Portuguese Speaking Society!
Starting university in the middle of a pandemic has been quite the challenge, especially having studied remotely for the whole year. However, societies and events have helped me a lot in meeting other students with the same interests as me as well as making me feel a lot more connected with the UCL community. I want to bring this society back to life and give you this community to socialise, connect and learn.
Whether you're from a CPLP country or just someone interested in the language and the culture, I will make sure there is a place for you! My aim is to bring back the Portuguese and Brazilian-Portuguese language lessons for everyone, as well as various social events to celebrate important cultural dates and just connect with other society members in general.
Let's celebrate the international nature of the Portuguese culture together!
