President

Hi I’m Jed, a second year law student from Bristol, and this year’s JCR President. My job is to both represent our lovely and amazing undergrad community to the people who run college, and to feed back with the student perspective. More importantly, my job is to lead this year’s spectacular JCR Committee! I’m looking forward to working collaboratively with this year’s committee to maximise the way it benefits everyone in Queens’ - allowing us all to get the most out of our time here. Outside of the JCR, I’d say I’m a bit of a library connoisseur (I am slowly making my way around all the Sidge libraries, and have strong opinions!), but can also be spotted in QCafé with a tomato, mozzarella and pesto panini. Any questions - college, JCR, or otherwise - please message me at my email address or on social media!

Hi everyone! I’m Georgia, a 2nd year Music student, and the VP and Secretary of the Queens’ JCR for the 2nd year in a row. I had such a great time getting involved in the JCR last year and wanted another year in the job! I’m really excited to work with the rest of the committee to represent your views to college, and work to make your experience at Queens’ the best possible. Outside of my JCR jobs of writing agendas, minutes, and attending college committees, I can usually be found in Waterstones cafe or singing in a cassock!

Emma Chaplin

Treasurer
[email protected]

Hi I’m Emma, a first year economist and your JCR treasurer for this year. As treasurer I help to manage funding of societies and the JCR. This is mostly paperwork and emails to deal with reimbursements to societies, managing budgets and thinking how we can optimise the budget to benefit everyone (as an econ I am familiar with the utility maximisation problem!). More importantly, I organise stash orders and make sure the pool table is kept free! I’m very friendly and am always open to suggestions and want to hear how the JCR can improve college for you. If you have any questions, ideas or concerns, please email me.

Hi, I’m Aimee (she/her), a second year bio natsci and this years disabilities officer. I like to say that I’m from north London, but actually live in the middle of nowhere, north of London.

I am here to help anyone and everyone with a disability/long term illness at Queens’, to make sure they get the most they can out of the college and the uni. I’m really proud of Queens’ because we are already a super accessible college, but nevertheless I have loads of exciting plans to improve it even more. If you ever need advice, a (poorly) listening ear, someone to chat to, or have any ideas as to making Queens’ more accessible, drop me an email.

Hi everyone! I’m Anna, a first year Chem-Eng/Natsci hybrid and I will be taking on the role of Sports and Societies Officer this year.

My job is basically to oversee the running of sports and societies within Queens’. I would love to get as many people involved in societies, which will include improving accessibility and making registration of new societies simple. I also support the use of various college facilities and the management of equipment. This year I’m aiming to spread the word of Queens’ successes and escapades on various social medias, as well as acting on any new ideas you guys may have. My big role in Michaelmas will be organising the societies fair which hopefully I’ll see all of you at!

If you have any questions at all, or have a suggestion for the societies system at Queens’, then give me a shout on Facebook or via email :)
