I believe the position of Equalities Officer is an incredibly important one, utterly vital for the well-being of our community, as a way to promote inclusion and open-mindedness amongst students. Amongst other things, I want to increase awareness about Pride Week, and make the related MCR events more exciting and entertaining. I will endeavour to monitor and address homophobic, biphobic & transphobic hate crime in college, and I look forward to representing the MCR in Trinity’s equality meeting, where I will fight for increased access to the college, including the possibility of installing a lift to make the beer cellar accessible to all students.
I plan to hold weekly equality forums on all matters of equality and accessibility, from discussions of invisible illnesses to fat-phobia, bi-phobia and Oxford’s problematic history. I would love to invite knowledgeable speakers from other colleges and societies to contribute to these equality forums.
Apart from procrastinating on my studies, you’ll find me talking nonsense in the MCR or enjoying a wine or four in the beer cellar. When I’m not being a chaotic mess, I like to paint, read, walk around the Oxford parks and pat dogs.
