Vaania Achuthan
Hi everyone!

I am a first year Politics and International Relations student. It was a goal of mine to learn a new language at University and after trying many different societies, I never really grasped anything too well. Then, I joined the sign language society and ever since, I have been hooked! The intricacies and uniqueness of BSL along with the fantastic student led instructors is the reason why I find BSL so captivating. I currently serve as the President of the Animal Rights Society and am the Editor-in-Chief of the International Public Policy Review- an academic publication of the Department of Political Science. These experiences have made me extremely savvy with social media; managing the website, Facebook and Instagram accounts. As such, I also have experience with designing, and I will be able to design posts for SLS using different graphic designing platforms, including but not limited to Canva. I have worked as an Intern for a theater firm before, and I was incharge of the marketing department. Hence I plan on using the different tools available on Instagram and other social media platforms to increase engagement with our followers, resulting in greater participation.
As this experience will allow me to intertwine my fascination for BSL with my skills in social media, I believe it is apt for me.

Please consider my nomination, it would be an honour to serve as your social media officer!
