|Years Active||2016 –|
YSTV's Official Director of Better (2017)
Hui-Ling Phillips joined YSTV in Freshers' Fair 2016, her second year of study (even after wanting to in first year but being too intimidated). Mostly because Sam Willcocks shoved a flyer into her hand (after her friends blanked him) and later, at YSTV's stall, got very enthusiastic about tech as he was the only tech member at that time. Luckily it turned out she was interested in the tech aspect.
She soon started spending most evenings at YSTV for many hours. Surprisingly not for shows in the beginning, but to help out with The Great Untangling of 2016.
Her housemates assumed if she was missing for what would be worryingly long periods of time, that she was just spending all of her time at YSTV and sleeping (presumably) at home in-between going to YSTV. On one occasion when leaving the house (to go to YSTV) a housemate exclaimed "I haven't seen you in like a week!" and in a group chat her nickname was set to Mike TV because TV was all' she talked about.
YSTV is possibly the best thing Hui-Ling decided to do in her academic career.
Less notably; her degree is currently in Physics and despite YSTV taking up all of her free time, is going well.
