Molli Cleaver

Hello everyone, I’m Molli, your RUSU President! I’ve just finished my degree in English Literature and over my time at Reading I’ve got involved with a lot on campus. I’ve been on RAG committee, St George’s JCR, School Rep, netball and worked on bars, just to name a few! I’m really excited to work on events spaces, employability and student engagement this year to make sure your uni experience is the best it can be!
