International and Visiting Students’ Officer – Elena Gordillo Fuertes (she/her)

Hey Hall,

My name is Elena Gordillo Fuertes and I am a third year Geographer from the Canary Islands, Spain. My time so far at the Hall has been absolutely amazing and my commitment for next year is to make sure all international and visiting students in the JCR feel the same way. Coming from abroad is challenging, whether it is because of a language barrier, cultural shock and now COVID travel restrictions and more difficulties meeting people. I will try to answer any questions you have during the year, get in touch with college for important issues and organize events to further incourage integration to the JCR. My number one priority is that internations feel as comfortable and welcomed into the JCR as any other students. If you have any issues or suggestions on events do get in touch with me any time!
