Ellie Nicklen's Story

"Ellie has bought the Engineering Society back from the dead. Though I have only been here for two years, I have been assured by engineering lecturers that she has done more for the engineering society in the last few months than has been done with it in the last 10 years. She is fiercely dedicated to making the most of every opportunity that even comes near the society, plus making as many of our own as possible. She is organised, enthusiastic, supportive and inclusive and has made a fantastic and engaging society out of almost literally nothing on top of studying and working and living over an hour away. I have honestly never met anyone like her, she's incredible"
