Societies Executive 2023-24


Alys Webber (She/Her)

Fifth Year Masters in Technical Leadership in Analytical Science
Committee Member for Keele Drama Society

"I ran for societies executive because I want to be able to give back to the societies I am a part of, as well as helping other societies get involved and have their voices heard by Keele SU. I know that this pandemic has been hard on all of our societies, and I want to be a part of the rebuilding movement to help bring our societies back to their full capabilities. I am extremely excited to hear from all of you, and if you have any problems, don’t hesitate to get in contact with me. "


Amy Lee (She/Her)

Third Year in MSci Forensic and Analytical Science
Committee Member for Aerial Dance Society and Dance Society 

"I ran for Societies Executive because I love the societies I have joined and the genuine support and friendships I have gained through them. As I couldn't possibly commit anymore time to actually participating in another, this was the best way I could think of to give back to that: by having a direct contribution and say in the decisions surrounding what I honestly think is the best part of university life, in hopes that the differences I could potentially make have a positive impact so others also get an enjoyable and stress-free experience out of it too."

"Being apart of socieities has been a huge part of my time at keele and I have made some incredible friends along the way as a result. As a society executive I want to help ensure students are also able to have incredible experiences with societies like I have."


Bobbie Parr (They/He)

"Being actively involved in societies since I joined Keele has had a massive positive impact on my University experience that’s taught me a lot. Particularly I’ve loved being involved in societies and events surrounding liberation groups, wellbeing and education, and I can’t wait to work with more societies in these areas in the future."


Giselle Pearson (She/Her)

Second Year in Computer Science & Mathematics
Committee Member for Aerial Dance Society and Dance Society

"Societies are my favourite part of university.  In my first year at Keele, I created the Aerial Dance Society and joined the committee of Dance Society and I've loved the experience.  I became a societies executive to help bring a voice to all the societies."


Jamie Sellers (He/Him)

“I have been involved in a range of societies, and I hope to give back to them the best I can. I have massive love for all of the friends I’ve made through them and the support they’ve provided me for my 3 years here. I want to help be a voice for students in any society not just those I’m a part of.”
