I’d firstly like to say a giant thankyou to all those who have contributed to Target & Access this term. The last couple of months have been huge for Homerton Access, with many events – big and small – taking place, and I’m so grateful to anyone who has been involved in any way. A massive difference has been made to many young people’s perceptions of Cambridge – thankyou.
I’d also like to tell you about and ask for your help with a VERY IMPORTANT AND VERY EXCITING HUS ACCESS PROJECT about to get going. As you may have noticed, the HUSJCR website has a ‘Prospective Students’ section, and this needs filling up with useful/interesting/inspirational/fun (there are no boundaries :p) information. One part of this section is going to be a webpage filled with HOMERTON STUDENT PROFILES, written by you, the students yourselves, about your Homerton experience: initial feelings as applicants and first-years, friendships you have formed, achievements and successes etc.
Homerton is the perfect place for someone who wants a college that is primarily welcoming and supportive – our student population is diverse and varied, yet together we make up ‘the friendliest college in Cambridge! This is our chance to spread the message to potential applicants that anyone can fit in here and have a great time.
So please get involved! Procrastinate this vacation by writing a profile about yourself – anything from a few words to 400 – and sending it accompanied by a picture of yourself (a picture isn’t compulsory) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I honestly want profiles from every kind of person, regardless of what kind of school you went to, or what your background, sexuality, age or nationality is – we all fit in here, don’t we? Just be yourself. Â If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact. Also, if you’re happy to be filmed speaking about yourself instead of a written profile, then please let me know, as it would be great to have a few videos on the page too.
Many, many thanks, and best wishes for a lovely holiday,
Helena Blair xx
Target & Access Officer 2012-13 Homerton Union of Students
