The committee (and a little about ourselves):

  • President: Chloe E. Pearson
    • Hello! My name is Chloe and I am the president of LANMA for the 23-24 school year. I hope to make this society a friendly, welcoming environment for people to hang out and form friendships, preferably keeping the fighting and murder to a minimum. I am a first year BSc Medical Genetics student, coming in from a foundation year. I am a wizened mature student™ of 26 returning to education following a cancer diagnosis & treatment (so OP god had to nerf me). 

      If you ever need help with anything you are more than welcome to reach out to me either via Discord or my student e-mail ( 

      PS: You don't need to worry about Jacinta embezzling funds because I've already done it.

  • Treasurer: Jacinta Omoruyi

Don’t be scared to drop me a message on discord, send me an email or ask about any enquiries you have whether it’s online or in person. I may look scary but I promise I don’t bite! I found LANMA to be very enjoyable last year and I hope we can keep it as fun and inviting as it was. Can’t wait to see you all at the upcoming socials, please make sure you get the membership!!

      PS: I was only joking about the embezzlement… Or was I?
