‘It’s so worth it’: Why I love being a society president

When I started my studies at Portsmouth, I didn’t think I would end up being a president of a society. I have immense anxiety and I’m petrified of public speaking, so being in a leadership position didn’t seem like something I could do. Turns out I was wrong and I’m actually quite good at it.

It all started when I joined the university’s Green Society. As an environmentalist and eco-blogger, I wanted to meet like-minded people who were passionate about the same sorts of issues as I was. Joining the society was great, I made new friends and went to events that were focused on environmental issues.
