Recently, I became UN Women Oxford’s Events Officer, promoting discussion surrounding gender equality. Working with committee, the role requires the coordination of events, such as a talk by Helen Mountfield, a Diversity Panel discussing minority challenges in Oxford education, a film night and collaborating with the Good Lad Initiative to discuss toxic masculinity.
Being a keen runner, I raised over £400 for charity doing the Oxford half marathon for my 21st birthday. Last year, I was co-captain of the Balliol Women’s Football Club and was Social Secretary for Balliol’s renowned college bar, organising social events for the Balliol community. I’ve debated for Labour in multi-party debates on topics such as the House of Lords and University fees. I support the Access team at Balliol by giving tours to students from schools in deprived areas and volunteer at my comprehensive school to help demystify the process and tutor for admissions tests.
