Hi! I’m Michelle, Castle’s Outreach Officer for this year. I study Politics, Sociology and Spanish and I’m a fourth-year student, back from a year abroad in Barcelona / Paraguay!

My vision is to make this college a more inclusive community with a real understanding of local issues, ensuring that outreach stems from the most genuine, impactful and informed place possible. Since joining Durham in 2018, I have worked as President of the 93% Club, Assistant Campaigns Officer in college and also CCA’s Sponsorship and Fundraising Officer. In my spare time, I love reading, writing, travelling and going to the gym – and of course spending time with my friends!! If you have any questions about our initiatives, plans or how to get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact me at michelle.grace@durham.ac.uk.

If you want to get in touch with any questions or ideas for CCA, you can email me at castle.outreach@durham.ac.uk
