About me: 

I was born and bred in London, North London, to be specific and have lived here all my life. In 2019, I graduated with a BEng in Dental Materials from QMUL and came straight down the road to Barts and The London. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, yoga, Netflix and before this pandemic hit, I used to enjoy the “occasional” night out too! 


Top Achievements: 
  • BDS1 Representative  

  • Treasurer and External Affairs Officer for Dentsoc 

  • Biomin Research Intern 

  • Dental Protection Student Ambassador  

  • Published Author for Dentsoc Bitesize  


What motivated me to stand for Dentsoc President: 

I have been on the Dentsoc committee for 2 years now and witnessed the changes that both of the presidents during those years made as well as the benefits that Dentsoc brings to each and every student. Being the year rep showed me the importance of the academic side of Dentsoc, whilst being the External Affairs Officer & Treasurer this year showed me how Dentsoc behind the scenes is actually run as well as the importance of finances within a society. We wouldn’t be able to do half the things we do without our amazing sponsors!
