As it’s the halfway point in my tenure as Deputy President (Welfare), I wanted to take the time to share what an incredible year it has been and show my gratitude to all of you who have been part of this journey. While there are a lot of things I’m proud of achieving this past year, my standards for the upcoming year remain higher than ever.
Being Deputy President (Finance & Services) has been one of the most exciting, challenging and emotional experiences of my life. I've grown and developed significantly over the past two years and I'm incredibly lucky to have had this opportunity. The Officer Trustee roles are an incredible life learning and building experience and I encourage everyone to consider running to be an OT.
As my year as Deputy President (Clubs and Societies) comes to a close, I have been reflecting on how much has changed in the past year. When I came into the role, COVID restrictions and the changes to them defined society activity. Now, we are pretty much back to normal – and I’d like to think this normal looks better than before.
The last twelve months have seen a profound change in Imperial College Union, Imperial College, and the world of Education. Still, the day-to-day impact I have had on students' learning experiences has kept me motivated, excited, and humbled to be your elected Deputy President (Education).
We are still buzzing, and a bit tired, from the Union’s Summer Ball last Saturday. After months of planning and collective hard work we pulled the night off as planned and it was absolutely amazing to see so many people get into the spirit of the night, and have fun.
