President – Scarlett Hughes
Hello everyone, I am Scarlett, a second year HSPS-er from Cornwall and I am very excited to be your JCR President for the coming year. If I am not on the water or in the library, I will likely be found trying to fix my prehistoric bike (somewhat unsuccessfully) or catching up with friends over coffee and a walk. Please do not hesitate to reach out to anyone on the Committee with any questions, concerns or suggestions. We are here to help make your experience of Churchill as best as possible and any ideas will always be very much appreciated

Green Officer – Pasha Taylor
Hello everyone, I am Pasha, one of the JCR Green Officers. I am studying Geography and have a real passion in promoting and enhancing the sustainable credentials of Churchill College. Upon coming to Cambridge, I was intimidated by the prestige of the university and was nervous that I would fail to follow the surplus rules and regulations implemented by colleges, such as wearing a gown and not walking on the grass! The nice thing about Churchill is that you are welcomed with open arms and not confronted with many of these strict regulations or traditions. Rather, the college is forward thinking and seeks to embrace individuals as they are and for what they chose to do. I hope you take this for comfort – try not to worry and before you know it you will find you place and your people here. Best of luck!
Access & Education Officer – Sarannia Ragula

I spend some of my free time working with external companies to help school students with their med school applications. I also enjoy playing badminton for the college women’s team (if you’re interested do get in touch). And finally, as you can probably tell from my photo, I absolutely love dogs (cue my friends rolling their eyes right about now) and I love love love showing pictures of my adorable Maltese Terrier and talking about all things dog! Anyways, I’m always up for a chat or a quick coffee catch-up in the buttery so please come say hi or reach out if you ever want to talk 🙂
