Chemistry: Events Officer

Hi, everyone! I am Betty, a first-year chemist. I am running for Events Officer (South Kensington) for the next academic year.

Since I have arrived at Imperial in October, I have met so many nice chemists and made friends with them. From time to time, I develop stronger and stronger belongingness to our Chemistry community. Having received so much help and kindness, I strongly feel that I need to contribute something to the Chemsoc and being in the committee is the best way that I can think of.

If I were elected as an Events Officer next year, I will take everyone’s opinions into account since I understand people have different preferences for events. Therefore I will arrange a huge variety of events including pub crawls, boat parties, ice skating, trampolining, musical/play trips, Halloween party, Christmas dinner and Chinese New Year dinner and many more to accommodate everyone’s interest. Also, I would like to introduce a Christmas-themed and a Valentine-themed pub quiz in which people give pre-bought Secret Santa presents and chocolate to each other respectively. I want to make use of chem café more at night, too. So we can have some cozy socializing such as karaoke/cake/film nights and etc.

Thank you for taking the time to read my manifesto and I truly want to be part of Chemsoc’s committee as an Events Officer. So, please vote for me and thank you very much!
