Hey there! I’m Laura, I’m 21 and I’ve just graduated with a degree in History and Politics. I grew up in London and I attended Putney High School where I did A Levels in English, History and Politics.
During my time at York, I was heavily involved in sport, both as an athlete and as an organiser. At college level, I dabbled in various different college sports in my first year and became Sports Rep for James College. At club level, I captained the Women’s 1st Lacrosse Team to victory at National Championships in my 2nd year, and in 3rd year I helped organise ‘Roses’, our massive varsity against Lancaster, as Tournament Secretary on the York Sport Committee.
I decided to run for York Sport President in the Elections in 2017 because I truly love the sporting environment here at York, and I want everybody to benefit from these opportunities like I have.
If it wasn’t for sport, my university life would have been totally different and I wouldn’t have found my best friends! During campaign week I was ‘Loz4Sport’ and I began my term in office in July 2017. I pride myself on being smiley and welcoming, nicknamed as ‘Vice-President Funs’ with Mikey the Activities Officer, so come say hey!
