2022/23 Committee


Harrison Kaye (he/him)



Hey! I’m Harrison and I’m the JCR President for this year. I’ve spent the last year studying in Taiwan and now I’m coming into my third year ready to lead the JCR committee and welcome you to Pembroke. My main roles are to oversee everything that’s going on within the JCR and to provide a link between the student and staff community. There’s loads of exciting things going on in the JCR this year so you’ll probably see me around working to make it all run smoothly. If you need any kind of support but aren’t sure where to start or who to speak to, I’ll be here to help you out and point you in the right direction. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and making sure you have a great time at Pembroke!


Miles Robson (he/him)

Vice President


Hi, my name is Miles and I’m the incumbent JCR Vice President.  It’s my role to engage with the student community, mainly through formal events, an awful lot of emails, and (most importantly) our JCR meetings. JCR meetings are what give the student community the power to make changes to life in college, and all sorts of motions are tabled. I’ll be hosting these meetings on Sundays fortnightly in the JCR, so be sure to drop in, and if you have a motion in mind, I’m the one to talk to!


Lucia Henwood (she/her)

Academic & Suspended Student Rep

History & Economics

Hi, I’m Lucia and I’m the incoming Academic Rep. My role involves co-ordinating with subject reps, sitting on the Academic Committee to give JCR feedback to the rest of college and best of all organising University Challenge trials and practice! I've also got some plans for new events with the MCR and SCR next year as well as more mentoring opportunities and study skills sessions. If you have any concerns, questions or feedback about academic issues, I should be able to help or point you in the direction of someone who can!


Imee Marriott (she/her)

Communications Rep


Hi, I’m Imee and I’m the incoming Communications Rep. This means I’ll be managing the JCR website, the instagram page and editing the Pink Times - Pembroke’s very own publication. I can usually be seen around college in a mixture of blue and green carrying a coffee and/or a hot water bottle and I’m the person to speak to if you have an event or information you’d like to advertise on the Pembroke social media channels!


Ayeza Akhtar (she/her)

Racial & Ethnic Minorities (REM) rep


Hi, I’m Ayeza and I’m Pembroke’s REM rep for this year! This means I’ll be supporting REM students across the college- this includes welfare support and putting on events to celebrate Pembroke’s diversity. Moving to Oxford can be intimidating, especially if you’re from a more diverse area, such as I am (big up manny), so I hope to put on many fun REM events with an emphasis on intercollegiate events to help minority groups connect across the university. Feel free to email/dm/stop me for a chat whenever!


Olivia Walsh (she/her)

Welfare Rep

Spanish & Portugese

Hey, I’m Liv and I’m one of the 4 incoming welfare reps this year!

Abinaya Arulalagan (she/her)

Welfare Rep


Hi, I’m Abi and I’m an incoming female Welfare Rep. This means that I will be working with the welfare team to help support you through whatever life throws your way! Living a balanced life at oxford so a great welfare system is important. We will be organising a variety of weekly welfare events across the year such as walks in the meadows and welfare snacks in the JCR as well as Welfare Week in 5th Week. I’m always free (alongside the rest of the welfare team) to have a chat about anything and everthing, serious or not - so feel free to send a message or say hi!


Tilda Hungtingford (she/her)

Environment Rep

Physics & Philosophy

Hi, I’m Tilda! As the incoming environment rep, I am really excited to be an advocate for climate action within Pembroke.

I will also be running Pembvironment, which is Pembroke’s very own environmental society. Everyone is welcome to speaker events, discussion groups (about environmental issues in relation to Pembroke as well as the world in general) and socials


Sibby O'Grady (she/her)

Gender Equalities Rep

History & Economics

Heya, I’m Sibby, this year’s gender equalities rep. That means I’m going to be running Pembroke’s feminist discussion group (Peminists), which meets fortnightly and is welcome to everyone (please come!!). I’m (sadly) going to be bringing attention to sexual violence, through consent workshops and making sure people know how to report it, as well as other issues people might be having, such as Eating Disorders. Please please come and talk to me about any gender-based problem or idea you might have!!

Maxi Grindley (he/him)



Heya, I'm Maxi! I'll be your secretary, which basically just means I'll be aggressively filling up your inbox with emails you won't read but sometimes should read. You'll also see me at JCR meetings where I'll be the only person actively encouraged to be on their phone throughout in order to minute the meetings. If you ever need to digitally harass the entire JCR with something vaguely officious, I'm the person you're looking for!”
