What made you decide to stand for election this year?

Being a part of clubs and societies at UCL has been my favourite part of university life- now I want to give back to the community, make some positive change, and ensure all students can take part in some great events throughout the year!

What are your top three priorities from your manifesto?

1. Supporting sustainable, inclusive, and accessible events throughout the year.

2. Giving clubs and societies more spaces for storage, training, and performances.

3. Making creative arts accessible for all students- think Project Active, but for art!

What do you hope to achieve in the coming year?

Hopefully most of what I wrote in my manifesto- but other than making sure that the calendar is full of fun and accessible events, I want to fight for issues that the students find important. Re-joining Stonewall and supporting LGBTQ+ students and staff are some of my priorities!

What has been the best part of your UCL experience so far?

Being a part of societies! I’ve met my closest friends doing shows with Drama, or murder mysteries with Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I can confidently say that I wouldn’t be the person I am without them or the communities that UCL societies have built.

Your advice to new students?

Don’t be afraid to try out something new! If you ever have a few hours free, there’s almost certainly something cool happening on the What’s On calendar, and if you’ve always wanted to try a niche hobby, there's probably a society around that can help you out.
