As President, there are two sides to my role. The first is the university facing side which involves going to meetings and committees and writing reports to try and bring about changes that students want. The other side is the student facing side in which I get to interact with students. My role is to keep students up to date with what’s going on at CUSU and at the University more broadly and to listen to students’ ideas and concerns. In essence, I act as a bridge between students and the University to help make Cambridge the best place it can be for students!
I ran for CUSU because I saw it as an opportunity to make change at the University and really wanted to ensure that all students had a voice in decision making processes. My top priorities this year centre around welfare, financial support and addressing college inequality. I also want to make sure CUSU engages with a wide array of students to ensure that students really do have a voice.
Studied: Human, Social and Political Sciences at Pembroke College
What do you do when you’re not at CUSU?
Dance! Dance has always been a massive part of my life and I’ve been doing dance competitions since the age of 5! During my degree I competed with the University Dancesport team which I loved.
Favourite place in Cambridge?
Pembroke (my college!) because it has been such a central part of my time at Cambridge. It feels like a home away from home and I’ve made so many amazing friends there.
