Hi, I’m Sian and a 2nd Year Computer Science Student here at Southampton, and I’m running for the role of Vice President Engagement. I have spent the last year on committee, serving as your Welfare Officer; helping out at every single event and working with the engagement team every step of the way. From running into Aldi with the Secretary and Social Sec to grab water 5 minutes before a social starts, to walking 100 drunk freshers through Portswood, I’ve done it all!

As VPE I promise to: - Help deliver the best quality events, alongside the Events Officer and Social Secretary - Ensure a welcoming atmosphere within the society, working alongside the Welfare Officer to do so - Strive to host more non-drinking and academic events, to help increase the diversity our events schedule - Working with the President and VPO to guarantee the smooth running of the society (AKA the stuff you guys don’t see!)

As a motivated, confident and approachable committee member, I feel like I am the correct choice for the role of VPE for this year’s committee. Thank you so much for reading, and I hope to see you around! :)
