Elin is a 21-year-old student at Cardiff University half way through her medical degree. She grew up in a small village near Bristol and attended The Red Maids’ School where she was head girl. She studied A levels in Biology, chemistry, maths and AS level Russian.

Sport has been a huge part of Elin’s life, she would play any and every sport available to her. From a young age she played rugby, football and cricket, along with ballet, tap and modern, as well as netball and hockey to name just a few! In her chosen sport – netball, she has represented her school, county, university and most recently has been involved with the Celtic dragons and in the Wales U21 setup.

At Cardiff University Elin has captained the 1st team and also been part of MedSoc. Being part of the netball club has enhanced her experience at university and she decided to go for the role of VP sports and AU president as she wanted to make sure people have the best experience of sport possible at Cardiff.

Elin’s priorities for this year include:

  • Improving facilities
  • Promoting health in sport
  • Increasing participation
