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."
"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."
"My gran taught me how to do the square tango."
What do you hope to do with your committee role?
"I hope to be a friendly and familiar face at lessons and encourage everyone to keeeeep dancing!"
