We are delighted to share the news that current Year 4 BDS student Veronica Barrientos Jimenez has won the Bristol SU award for Outstanding Individual Achievement.
The Bristol SU Awards celebrate students and student groups who have gone above and beyond to make a difference to the student experience each year. In Veronica’s case the award team said:
“The winner of this award is proactive, creative and inspirational. They have led their student group successfully through the pandemic and created a family scheme to support member welfare resulting in high member engagement and 100% satisfaction in the Rate My Group survey. They led the creation of a network of 13 other societies, establishing a UK-wide teaching programme across the year that has significantly reduced the costs for all groups involved and has kept 14 societies running despite challenging circumstances. They have also secured teaching from internationally renowned salsa experts and publicised the use of bamboo to offer socially distanced partner dancing, with the society’s video of this activity reaching over 20,000 people.”
“It was so exciting to have been nominated and to have won an award for my work as president of a society.”
Many congratulations Veronica – very well deserved!
