ABOUT ME

Hi, I’m Savannah and I’m your Postgraduate Access, Education and Participation Officer for 2022/23! The PG AEP role has such a wide remit, so I work on anything from access to Cambridge for marginalised groups, to putting on events for everyone, to fighting for proper treatment and pay for supervisors.I ran for the role because since being an undergrad at Nottingham, I was shocked to see the percentage of women who didn’t remain in maths for postgraduate study. I really want to investigate why and what we can do to help. I also want long term focussed climate action at the SU, which is why it’s important to me to implement a climate and social justice officer at Cambridge as I saw how effective it was at Nottingham. Lastly, I really want to do lots of student comms for the SU, making us more visible and approachable!I’ve just finished my MPhil in Philosophy of Science at Magdalene College, and before that I did a BSc in Mathematics at the University of Nottingham. You may recognise me from the show ‘Baby Ballroom’ on Netflix, or maybe my YouTube channel (where I’ll be sharing a more candid behind the scenes look at my role of SU officer, not affiliated with the SU). I’m also a triplet born on 29th February from Wolverhampton, and I love fashion, dogs, maths and video games. I’m also learning Welsh, French and Hindustani! My favourite place in Cambridge is probably my room in Magdalene. It’s beautiful and overlooks the river - I’ll be sad to leave!
