Committee Position: 


Year and Course: 

2nd year Biomedical Sciences 


Why did you join the society?

"University is all about trying new things, so I thought I'd give ballroom dancing a go. Starting as a complete beginner of any dancing, I found the lessons very accessible and am very impressed with what I have learnt in a year. And if I become a minor celebrity in the future, at least I won't be too bad on Strictly Come Dancing."

Why did you join the committee?

"The 2020/21 committee have been so friendly and helpful, and made me want to give back to the society to continue the great work they have done. As treasurer, I will hopefully be able to subsidise competition and travel fees to ensure the society is accessible to all." 

Favourite Dance: 

"Jive as it is a lively and fun dance, and there are so many songs you can dance to. It was also the first dance I competed virtually."

Favourite YBLS Memory:

"Watching our summer showcase and recognising all the hard work we have all put in this year."

Random Fact: 

"My gran taught me how to do the square tango."
