Having been Media Rep on the Activites Committee last year, I feel we really started to make a positive difference to student life at KCLSU. This is my fourth year on the Photography Society committee, so I've got more experience of running societies and working with KCLSU than most other committee members, and possibly many of the SU staff - I've seen people come and go and lots of new ideas put forward, and I'm really passionate to help KCLSU be the best it can be. I also started a new Ultrasound Society this year, so have been able to experience the ratification process first hand, as well as see how KCLSU supports societies outside the Student Media bubble. 

I'm also really keen to continue approving new societies, making important funding decisions, and discussing motions put forward by other students - last year the Activities Committee had a key role in these discussions and being able to bridge the gap between SU staff and the student body was something I really valued. Having experienced being on the Activities Committee last year, I am also able to appreciate its shortcomings, and am keen to help address these along with staff and the other Committee members. I feel I have a lot more to give to this role, and I'm really excited for the year ahead.
