Memorable YBLS Moment:

There are so many! The ceilidh at NUDC 2019 in Edinburgh, coming 1st in team match at Nottingham Varsity 2019, coming 2nd (Ballroom) and 3rd (Latin) with Katie at Birmingham Friendly and placing 3rd in Offbeat at NUDC and Blackpool this year.

Why did you join the society?

I used to dance Ballroom and Latin when I was younger and really wanted to get back into it because I missed it too much!

Why did you join the committee?

I was one of the team captains last year and loved being on committee! I wanted to use the experience I'd gained on a bigger scale to give back to a society that's been such a massive and amazing part of my uni experience.

What is your goal for the next year?

To increase opportunities for all members of the society in both competing and performances and continue to build on the amazing, welcoming atmosphere created by the past presidents and their committees. I'd also really like to make a final!
