Lauren Keiles, University of Leeds

'Hi, I’m Lauren. I’m at Leeds University and I feel fortunate to have been involved in Jewish student life and represent UK Jewish students locally, nationally and internationally. I want everyone to have a valued place in our union and gain something from being part of it, whether you’re here for a shiur, a schmooze or shots.'

Let’s make our union even better and more exciting by offering Jewish students practical solutions and ideas to address the issues they’re facing and give them the support they deserve.'

Joanna Phillips, University of Bath

'I’m a diasporist, queer, socialist, feminist Jew who loves Torah, roller derby and my grandmother's chicken soup. All my life I’ve been highly involved in the Jewish community, including being on the Harrow Day Limmud committee, leading multiple BBYO summer camps, going on a gap year to Israel, working for Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) for a year, being an activist with Jewdas and currently being the secretary for the Bath J-Soc.
