Grace Diamond - J-Soc Officer

I graduated from Leeds Beckett University after studying Business & Management. I also completed a semester at the John Molson School of Business in Montréal. I have lived in Hampshire for the last 18 years, but was born in Canada and am very proud of being Canadian.

Any opportunity I can be outdoors I will be, I love to ski and grew up riding horses competitively. I have a horse called Chewy - feel free to ask me for photos, videos or stories when I meet you on campus.

During my time at university I ventured out of the rural bubble and became involved in the Jewish community - I was Leeds J-Soc President. A memory that I hold dear was going to UJS Summit for the first time. I was newly elected as President and it was a time for me to get to know my committee as well as the UJS team. This really was the start of what turned into three years full of incredible opportunities and experiences for me. I hope to replicate this for students in the coming year.

As well as supporting several J-Socs, I am responsible for Limmud, the social action network and working with different charities in order to bring them to campus and enable Jewish students to get involved with their projects.
