Describe your role at Cambridge SU:

As SU Women’s Officer I represent students of marginalized genders, and lead the SU Women’s Campaign. The Campaign has weekly forums where I am accountable to the students I represent, and where Campaign policy is discussed and decided. Through the Women’s Campaign I support students, particularly those on committee, with the projects and campaigning that they are passionate about. I am also a representative on various University committees and within the SU itself.


Why did you run for this role?

Most of all I want to make this University a better place for the marginalized students who study here. A lot of policy is made with no consideration towards how it will impact students differently on the basis of gender. This role is a natural continuation of the work I did with the SU LGBT+ Campaign and on my college’s JCR during my time as a student.


What are your top priorities this year?

My top priorities this year are increasing support for student carers, widening the scope of consent workshops beyond just a “one-and-done” conversation at the start of the year, and ensuring free provision of period products. In addition, I want to improve WomCam’s outreach to better connect with postgraduates in particular, and continue to build an inclusive campaign with connections to other groups both in the University and the wider Cambridge community. 


What did you study?

I studied Physics (Natural Sciences) at Newnham College.


What do you do when you’re not at Cambridge SU?

I play the drums and sing in my spare time, as well as making my way through my reading list, which gains books faster than I finish them. I like to watch (and sometimes play) a lot of sports, especially basketball, and I also spend probably too much time playing on my Nintendo Switch. 


Favourite place in Cambridge?

Ittou on King’s Parade is one of my favourite places to eat. It’s a close call between there and wherever in Murray Edwards the painting Load Up Your Laundry is displayed.
