Hi there! I’m Josh, a first year HSPS student, footballer for John's 1st XI and now, your BME Officer for 2020. As BME Officer, I aim to ensure first and foremost that BME members of the college feel included and welcome. I plan to encourage more BME students to apply to John’s through various initiatives in and outside of college. With a particular focus on Black students, who are disproportionately underrepresented at John’s, I want to introduce a John’s BME Open Day and implement a ‘BAMEntor’ scheme which matches prospective applicants of BME heritage with Johnians to enable them to make the most informed application possible. Whilst I look forward to working with fellow JCR members, I also look forward to engaging with fellow students on how John’s can become the most diverse and accessible college at Cambridge.
