YSJSU | Meet your new President!


Elections are over for another year, and you as a student body turned out in record form to elect your new exec team! As always, we thought it would be good to get to know the people behind the candidates, so we asked you’re newly elected candidates a few quick fire questions! Last up, your new President of the Students' Union George Coombs!

Q: What’s your name & where do you come from?

My name is George Coombs and I'm originally from Salford which is the city right next door to Manchester.

Q: What you studying?

I'm a 3rd year Fine Art student! 

Q: What’s your favourite film ever?

That's a pretty hard question! For a modern answer, I love Avatar, it's brilliant. But I still love Jumanji, such a cracking film; Robin Williams is just ace. 

Q: What’s your number 1 night out jam?

Gotta be either Sean Paul 'Temperature' or 'Perfect Strangers' by Jonas Blue, such choooones.

Q: What’s your dream holiday destination?

I've always wanted to go to Alaska, but my dream destination was Canada, and I visited there in summer '16 - but I'd definitely go back. 

Q: What would be your last meal on earth?

Gotta have my Nana's homemade shepherds pie and then her homage rhubarb crumble. She was a dinner lady so my childhood consisted of a lot of awesome food. 

Q: Who is the one person you would love to go for a coffee with?

 David Attenborough, he's my hero.

Q: What’s your favourite YSJ Memory?

There's so many good memories! The past 2 sports meals have been fantastic, being on sports and socs committee, all the Archie's day, but winning President of the SU, now that's one to remember forever.

Q: What are you most looking forward to next year?

I honestly can't wait for the new opportunities and the adventure that is next year. Meeting all the new students, building upon what Katie, Izzy and Laurie have done this year. But I just can't wait to start getting involved with every student at YSJ. It's going to be such a fantastic year.

Q: Finally… Summer or Winter Archies?

And come on, of course Summer trumps winter!
