In the run up to Freshers Fortnight kicking off, we thought it would be helpful for Central students to have the opportunity to get to know the SU team for this year. We've conducted some quick interviews to give you a brief idea of who each officer is, what they're like and what they're looking forward to when we begin in September- we hope you enjoy getting to know us!
Officer role: Women's Officer
Name: Rachel Vogler
Preferred pronouns: She/ Her
Course: 3rd year Drama, Applied Theatre and Education (Writing for Performance pathway)
If you could be any animal, what would it be?
A big cuddly sloth!
If you could eat any meal right now what would it be?
I’ve never been good at cooking but have recently been into making loads of roasted veggies with spices, I could definitely go for some of that now
What is your favourite society at Central SU?
I think Feminist Collective was a brilliant idea from the equally brilliant Meg last year. I’m a fan!
Why did you decide to run for this position?
I wanted to invest a lot of energy and ideas that I had for women at Central, and the Women’s Officer platform is a brilliant one to have and to share. I believe that with the right leadership, action and policy, we can continue to make Central a fairer, more diverse institution, and strong female leadership is key
Which freshers event can you not wait for?
I love Jazz and beer so I’m really looking forward to the Jazz&Speakeasy and the Camden Pub crawl. Also, so much love and respect to the Fresher’s team, the lineup this year looks amazing!
Which other officers do you see yourself working with?
Ideally everyone, I feel really confident about the intersectional capacity of the SU this year
What is your overall aim for the coming year?
I think action and celebration in equal measure. I’ve got big plans for a termly podcast which I’m really excited about, but there’s also some practical things that need doing including a clearer sexual harassment report policy, sanitary items etc. I’m really looking forward to building on the groundwork set by Officer before me, as well as laying some new ground of my own
Rachel won't be around as much in person for the duration of term 1, but will be fully contactable via the Women's Facebook page and also at firstname.lastname@example.org.
