Hiya everyone 😎 I’m Anna, a second year chemical engineer from Tonbridge and also your JCR President! As President, I reside over our wonderful JCR committee, both keeping them in order and supporting them in any initiatives they want to focus on in college. I represent the undergraduate student body to a whole plethora of committees, and would love to hear from anyone, any tiny thing they want to bring up! I also help coordinate larger scale events like Freshers’ week with the Freps and collaborating with the MCR I love to fill my time (perhaps unwittingly) with as many activities as I can, so can be found anywhere from the cox seat in Peterhouse W2 to shooting clay pigeons in a distant field! I’m also partial to a lounge on my lovely carpeted staircase landing, or studying furiously in the library. My emails (af760), messages and instagram are open for any suggestions or feedback so please do get in touch 🙂
Hi everyone! I’m Abby, a 2nd year Classics student and this year’s JCR Vice President. My job as VP is to help represent the views of Queens’ students to the college and to the university as a whole, as I sit on various committees both in college and represent Queens’ JCR at the Student Union, but most importantly, my job is to make sure that your experience at Queens’ is as fantastic as it can be! When I’m not doing JCR work, I can be found quizzing, playing football, or just chilling on the landing of my staircase. If you have any questions or things you want improving in college, feel free to message me via email, social media, or just catch me out and about in college!

If you have any submissions or suggestions for the newsletter and beyond then you can email me, or find me in QCafé, whose food and hot chocolates will always have my heart.

Hiya, I’m Conall, a second year compsci and your Accommodation & Facilities Officer on the JCR. My role includes helping college organise the Room Ballot at the end of the year and managing spaces around college like the JCR Room. I also go to a weekly Domus committee meeting with lots of different heads of college departments, where I can bring up problems or issues around college people have raised with me, and try to solve them with college. If you have any questions or want to raise anything, feel free to email me!
Hi! I’m Ewan, a law student from Dublin, Ireland, and I’m excited to be your Academics Officer! By liaising with staff, I help to ensure that the library keeps running smoothly, and I also represent the JCR on college Library and Teaching & Learning committees. I’ll also hopefully be organising some social activities during the year, such as debates and bar quizzes. I’m really looking forward to organising Queens’ University Challenge team in Michaelmas 2023, so stay posted for that! If you have any questions or concerns about academic matters in college, please feel free to contact me!
Hello! I’m Erica. I’m a second year Phys NatSci from Wales and this year’s Environmental Officer at Queens’. I want to make Queens’ as sustainable as possible and I am really excited to be taking on this role. I’m looking forward to carrying on with the college’s pledge for divestment, organising Green week as well as other small initiatives within Queens’. If you have any ideas or questions please drop me an email!
Hey I’m Paige, a first year PBS student and the LGBT+ officer. I am focused on making sure Queens’ an inclusive and welcoming community for current and prospective queer students. I am most excited to work with reps at other colleges for bigger events, but also with members from our lovely JCR for Queens’-related things. Feel free to contact me (email, WhatsApp, Instagram it doesn’t matter) if you have any welfare concerns, LGBT+ issues you would like raised, or just fun event ideas. I am very friendly, almost always in my room and love having a reason to avoid doing an essay! :)
Hi guys, I’m Max, an Engineer, and I am excited to be your Sports & Societies Officer. I am a big sports and societies fan, currently rowing with QCBC, running on the side, and getting involved with the Cambridge Union and sustainability-related societies. What we do outside of our course is what makes us all different and I would encourage everyone to get involved in as much as they can! I am aiming to deliver a more transparent system for you to check out what related opportunities there are at Queens’, primarily through the website, and encouraging weekly updates and success stories to be sent in for the JCR newsletter. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, I am always around Queens’ for a chat!
Hi! I’m Alex, a first year geographer and JCR Steward. I eat pretty much every meal in the Buttery, so I have a pretty vested interest in making sure catering is as functional and accessible as possible. I’m hoping to make catering throughout Buttery, Qcafe, and Qbar run as well as it possibly can and would love to hear your suggestions! Also follow @buttermeupqueen on instagram!
Hello, I’m Lizzie, a second year law student from Norfolk, and I’m taking on the role of Welfare Officer alongside Toby this year! I’m a lover of cats, procrastinating my law degree by binging Netflix series’, and antagonising my flatmates with constant singing. I’m excited to be in this role because I have a lived experience of mental health problems and disability, which motivates me to work hard to make welfare a priority at Queens’. Cambridge is tough, and at times feelings of loneliness and stress can become overwhelming: the role of the welfare officers is to open up spaces where students can come to socialise, take a break from work, and discuss their anxieties. I aim to work alongside Toby to bring you lots of chill events, hopefully with some furry friends joining too! Reach out to me through my email (ed592) or through Instagram (@queensjcr_welfare or @lizzi3bethx) to have a chat about welfare: I’m friendly and easy to talk to, and if need be I can direct you to another person or resource to support you. Alternatively, if you’re feeling stressed, reach out to me to have a coffee in a cafe or to go on a walk - we could even take the beautiful Tally with us!
Hi there, I’m Toby, and I’m one of your welfare officers this year, working alongside Lizzie! I’m a law student from Essex, and most of my time at Queens’ is spent either heavily procrastinating or rowing (these are potentially one and the same thing). One of my key aims as part of your JCR welfare team is to ensure that every student is comfortable with and informed about the support which is available to them. As well as this, Lizzie and I will be organising lots of events, resources and maybe even giveaways (keep your eyes peeled!) to help everyone get through their terms. I’m always available through my email (tn364) or on Instagram (@toby.nee or @queensjcr_welfare) so please do reach out to me (or Lizzie) if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions! I’m really looking forward to working with everyone to make Queens’ an even better place to live.

If you have any questions about life in another country, fitting in, or culture differences, feel free to contact me!
