I love the social side of life in the MCR and want to help it keep growing. It’s important to allow MCR members to meet new faces after the thrill of freshers’ week has died-down. I’d like to make sure swaps remain an inclusive and accessible way to do this.

I want to make the MCR more utilised in termly activities: more film nights, gaming (board and playstation) and take-out evenings (or a mixture of all three) would definitely fill the MCR-shaped hole in our lives. In particular, I’d like to make chill Sunday film nights more frequent with a focus on the old classics that we feel we ought to have seen, but may not have got around to yet. I’m also keen to start a croquet club when the season rolls around again, including an intra-MCR team league with copious Pimm’s.

As a keen musicologist, and resident Latino in the MCR, it is my duty to ensure that only the spiciest of tunes are played through our magnificent new set of speakers at all MCR events. With playlists ranging from the best of Abba, Earth Wind and Fire, The Killers, and Lionel Richie, to Justin Timberlake’s throwbacks, Miss Demeanor’s greatest hits, and JLo’s finest, I hope to provide a musical experience that will thrill and please all ears.
