History

Her first production was a Coffee House Session that got cancelled but it was where she first met the lovely Steph who persuaded her to keep going to more productions. She then camera operated for International Student Association Performance night. She then went AWOL whilst she tried out different societies, and mostly, didn’t like them.

After accidentally going to an admin meeting, she realised she wanted to be more involved on committee.

Her biggest step forward was running for Secretary in the 2018 elections and winning (to her surprise!) but then again no-one else ran. She then got more involved by attending Roses 2018 in Lancaster and meeting other stations.

She is so glad that she stuck with YSTV and had a great year as Secretary reading all the terrible spam emails and starting to produce more productions such as Sixty Seconds with STYCs. She also accidentally ended up producing an entire Halloween Livestream all because she wanted to do pumpkin carving.

YSTV has given her an amazing group of friends to make productions with and to spend time going on trips out such as YSTV goes camping. She was also the Training and Development Officer for Roses 2019 and has produced and directed a lot more productions in her second year.

The highlight of her time at YSTV is, of course, winning Best Broadcaster at NASTA 2019.

She was elected Production Director in the 2019 Elections and has overseen all the wonderful productions in the year from 2019 - 2020. Under her reign such productions were produced like Hunted: Episode 2, Quarantine Weekly, Lost, Please Sir There's Been a Murder and much more.
