Melody, how did you first get involved with the BMA?
The Annual Representative Meeting (ARM) is my favourite -you get to meet all sorts of interesting people, and you have ~4 days of engaging debate on all sorts of issues. You also get to meet even more people over dinner in the evenings!

The results of the debates (and the work done after!) can really make a difference to students, doctors, and patients' lives.

Melody, which BMA conference has been your favourite so far?

- HYMS Student interviewer 2013-14
- Systematic review published (first author) 2014

- HYMS roles 2013-14:
- Phase III Student representative
- Sit on HYMS Board of Studies and HYMS Ethics Committee

- First Class BSc (Hons) Medical Science (& prize) 2013
- Presented poster at European Cancer Congress 2013
- Article published 2011

~6 years involvement in HYMS Widening Participation work

Highlights of non-BMA experiences
- Experience in many different areas within the BMA
