Lana Firth, Joseph Uhlar & Rita Kimijima-Dennemeyer
I’m your Women and Trans-feminine Identities and Equal Opportunities Officer. I’m Peer Support trained and am here to support everyone in any way I can; from being a listening ear to organising events like the alpaca visits along with the other welfare reps. I work with college to support student’s welfare and improve the resources available. I am also one of the Boat Club women’s captains and study Classics and English.
As Male Welfare rep I am here to support JCR members with all forms of welfare problems, whether they are financial, emotional, health-, work-, or housing-related, or with other aspects of personal concern. I liaise with college on matters significant to your welfare, attending college meetings and committees and even talking with college tutors where necessary. My work keeps JCR members informed and educated about health and welfare issues, in part by distributing information and advice from OUSU, and hosting regular events with the Female and Fresher’s welfare reps. I am also an Archaeology and Anthropology 2nd year, treasurer of SHBC, co-founder of st-Hugh’s college chess club.
Hi I’m Rita, a first year psychology and linguistics student from Tokyo, and I am your fresher’s welfare rep. I am currently in the process of getting peer support trained so that I can develop skills to better serve as your welfare representative. Outside of my academic obligations, you can probably find me procrastinating in the library, curling up with a good book, or spending time with my friends. My main goal as welfare rep is to make information about available resources more accessible to everyone. I’m here to help you find any resources that you may require to make your experience at Oxford the best it can be. I also collaborate with my fellow reps Lana and Joe to host events such as welfare teas and welfare week. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any issues on your mind.
