Core Committee

Rachel Miller, President

Where are you from?  I was born in Manchester and lived there for 10 years before moving to quiet Dorset, where I have lived ever since...whilst not at uni in London.

What are your interests?  Lots of careers interest me from the banking sector, to careers in the civil service, to careers in NGOs. I’m hoping that through being involved with the Artichoke society I will find a career path that really stands out for me. I feel like I could be happy in a variety of future careers.

Fun Fact?  My favourite thing to do is to explore new places and photograph them, but my favourite place to be is by the sea...I’m lucky that when I go home from London it’s at the end of my road (literally).

What are your interests?  I really love baking and it’s my dream to have my own bakery one day. Making cakes and bread is my favourite way to de-stress!

Fun Fact?  I’ve watched every single episode of Gossip Girl and regret nothing.
