Your Committee | 2022-23
Date of next meeting - 7:00pm 16/06/2022
Hey I’m Manisha and I’m a third year Medical student and will be one of your co-presidents for the next year. I was thinking about my last few years at Bristol and decided to apply for the post last minute. My time at Bristol so far has been really great, despite the pandemic and things not going as expected, I’ve managed to meet some wonderful people and enjoy my time here. Going forward, I really want that to be the case for everyone. University can be a rocky time for some, the course can be stressful, life can get a little complicated and sometimes we just need a friendly face to talk to. I want it to feel like a safe, happy space for everyone where you’re genuinely enjoying yourself and feeling like you’re thriving. Keeping students connected with societies and socials and feeling like they’re part of something and not just a number is really important to me. Hopefully with our brilliant committee this year we can aim to do that this year.
Hi everyone, my name is Veronica, and I will be working alongside Manisha as your co-president of Galenicals this year. I am currently intercalating at the University of Manchester which has been super fun, and I think my time away from Medicine has given me motivation and passion to make my last 2 years at Bristol count even more!
My experience in the first 3 years of med school had it’s ups and downs, I’ve made lifelong friends and enjoyed how medicine has pushed my learning to new levels but at the same time there were periods where I felt very isolated and was really struggling with my learning. I think it took me some time, before I realised and acted on the fact that uni isn’t all about Medicine, and there’s so much more we can get out of our time. I was also inspired by people around me shaping students’ experience and I wanted to push myself to do the same! Medicine connects us all and there are so many ways we can support eachother and help eachother grow. I think this role is going to teach me so much, I’m excited for the experience it will give me and I hope I can do it justice for you all.
I’m excited to work with Manisha and the rest of our brilliant committee to make this year fruitful, successful and fun for everyone! Please don’t hesitate to contact any of us anytime and good luck to everyone with their exams! :
