BioHey everyone! I’m Katie, and I’m very excited to throw myself into the role of ECSU president this year.

My main role, alongside Kavish (Vice Pres) will be to run weekly ECSU committee meetings, as well as meet regularly with members of college staff to discuss matters of student interest. Importantly, I will strive to support all members of the committee in their roles, represent the whole student body, and serve as an open link between students and college. The whole committee is keen to emphasise and maintain an open, friendly, and supportive atmosphere in all areas of college life; we would love to improve communication and collaboration as much as possible, so please feel free to contact any committee member, for any reason.

Some of the things that I would like to focus on this year are: improving the communication between the ECSU committee and the student body, through the production of easily accessible ‘Committee Updates’. I will also focus on furthering the supportive and positive environment at Emma through working with other ECSU officers, including working with the women’s and welfare officers to support the ethos of the ‘Good Lad’ workshops. I would also like to propose and support the addition of a news and notices TV screen in the bar, and the addition of a sports officer and disabilities officer onto the ECSU committee. As well as this, I am keen to update the online video prospectus, and produce new, more specific, access videos, support the assessment and improvement of the tutor system, and improve and initiate links with charities.

Outside of ECSU, I am a second year PBS student, and my main extra-curricular involvements are being a REALLY KEEN ladies and mixed netball player, and volunteer for the Cambridge SCA. I was also a Freshers’ rep this year (#hype)!!!! I would encourage anyone and everyone to contact me with any concerns, ideas, or questions you may have about anything at all, and I will always do my best to help out, or put you in contact with someone who can.
