Diversity Officer
Rachel Wates

Hello! My name is Rachel Wates. I was born in Slough, Berkshire and then I moved to Farnborough, Hampshire when I was 9 - now I’m back in Berkshire again! I have just finished a Psychology with a Placement Year degree and I’m excited to work to represent you all!

Being a bisexual, Anglo-Indian female, diversity plays a big part in my life. I believe everyone should have a voice, and I want to help those voices be heard. Please say hi to me if I’m walking around campus – I could probably do with the company.

3 facts about me

I love a good plant-based meal and I can whip up a pretty good lasagne. I would have to say my favourite past time is doing yogalates (I was social secretary of the Yogalates society last year!) - I spent my last summer teaching yoga to children with learning disabilities in Bali, Indonesia. It was an amazing experience. I’m a big sucker for Pixar movies (but let's not talk about the Cars franchise).
