Hannah Belcher, Sports Officer
Hey everyone, I'm Hannah and I'm your Sports Officer for 2020/21. You can find out a bit more about me below but feel free to get in touch if you want to know anything else.
Course: Geography BA and Secondary PGCE
Hometown: Hornchurch, Essex
How do you think your friends and family would describe you?
My friends and family would say I am extremely passionate and driven. If I want something, then I make sure I go get it!
What inspired you to become an Executive Officer?
I have worked closely with the two previous sports officers. I really enjoyed being able to lead my own campaigns through my role on sports council and wanted to continue this further.
What can you offer students in your role?
I have experienced being a member of a Team Leicester club as both an undergraduate and a postgraduate. I have held committee positions as Treasurer and Club Captain and I have been a member of sports council.
What are you looking forward to most during your year as an Executive Officer?
I think I am going to have a unique year as Sports Officer. I am beginning my role as we ease out of a global pandemic which resulted in all sport stopping for a period of time. I am hoping throughout the forthcoming year that restrictions will continue to be eased and so I am looking forward to supporting students resume play as soon as it is safe to do so.
What is the most important change you want to make this year?
I want to make my actions as Sports Officer more transparent to the student body. They elected me into the role to represent them and so I will ensure I consult students in important decisions to make sure their voice is heard.
How do you chill out when you’re not at work?
I am a Cheerleader so I train 3-4 times a week in the evening.
If you were without the internet for a year, what three books, three songs and three series would you want to keep you amused?
I don’t think I could possibly limit it to 3 choices each. I love reading rom-coms. I would listen to anything from the ABBA Gold Album. I also love daytime TV, so Tenable, Tipping Point and the Chase. I like to test my knowledge and learn something new!
