Having been a First Year Rep, I was impressed by the reach and quality of the society’s work. As Chair, I hope to facilitate this tradition of producing impactful policy papers, and to ensure continued engagement with the Cambridge community and beyond. I am a second-year History and Politics student at Sidney Sussex and I have a keen interest in music.
Having grown up in both the US and China, my bicultural background piqued my interest in International Relations as well as Comparative Politics. I am also fascinated by the intersection of law and public policy, which I hope to further explore after my undergraduate studies.
Head of Policy
Before coming to Cambridge, I studied International Affairs at Princeton University and then spent two years working in investment banking at J.P Morgan in New York. As part of TWS, I served as a first year rep on the policy team and worked on the recent International Aid in Venezuela Paper.
Deputy-head of Policy
Hi, I’m Beatrice and I’m a third-year historian at Caius. I have previously written on the ‘Measures to address the Venezuelan Crisis’ paper, and am currently co-editing a paper on the ‘War on Drugs’
I was born and brought up in Brighton, although both my parents are from India, so Hindi is the main language I speak at home. Outside of work, I love playing football, cricket and pool for College, but I also enjoy snooker, poker and travelling amongst other things.
Head of Publicity
I have a background working with domestic and international social ventures and an interest in emergent tech strategy. I am currently working on a paper exploring the UK's network security and digital policy.
Deputy-head of Publicity
I have been involved in publicity work for The Wilberforce Society since my first year and I look forward to the next academic year.

Head of Sponsorship
I'm an avid sports fan, spending a lot of my free time either playing rugby or squash. Previously, I was a first year Finance representative with TWS.
Head of Events
I am a second-year historian from Singapore and China with a strong interest in public policy in the Asia-Pacific region. Prior to taking up my current role, I was involved in the Wilberforce society as a First-Year Representative and policy paper writer. Outside of Wilberforce, I am also very interested in general knowledge and am an active member of the Cambridge University Quiz Society.
Head of Conference
I have an interest in a wide-range of policy issues, particularly foreign policy in Eastern Europe and Russia, and Globalisation more generally. Currently, in addition to organising the conference, I am writing a paper on Internet Governance.
Head of Conference
I was first involved with TWS as a first-year rep for the 2020 conference, and am now excited to be leading the 2021 conference with Luke. Outside of TWS, I’m a Londoner and I enjoy travelling and baking.
