First Year Reps – Jimena Abeledo and Alex Whitworth

As this year’s MedSoc First Year Reps we hope you provide you with amazing socials to give you all the opportunity to drown your sorrows in alcohol to cope with the whirlwind that is first year of med school. We also hope to arrange various sober events where you can pick up on hobbies you haven’t had the time for in a while and various other therapeutic activities to keep us sane. Lastly we hope to provide you with all of this while decked out on BSMS merch (coming soon;))))

What’s your favourite thing about BSMS?

Jimena: The sense of community. No matter in what seminar, tutor group or lecture you’re in you’re always going to be surrounded by a friendly group of people keen to give a helping hand (and ofc the lit socials)
Alex: the socials where you embarass yourself to the highest degree and everyone makes fun of you monday morning because the club is filled with basically your entire year group

What is your best memory of BSMS?
Jimena: It’s hard to pinpoint one but it would definitely have to be one of the many times we sat around the kitchen table with our flat mates and chatted nonsense until the late hours
Alex: Traffic light party for jimmy’s birthday – specifically making ratatouille at 4am

What do you like most about the other?
Jimena: Alex has it all. She’s witty and always has something funny to say but can also be serious and efficient. We bond over her libido being almost as high as mine which are the foundations of many of our most memorable conversations. Best partner I could’ve ever asked for.
Alex: How up beat and optimistic she is. Plus how she has no filter which produces some very interesting conversations hah. Best first year rep partner anyone could ask for 😘

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Jimena: Just nothing alex has made please.
Alex: Does gin count? If not, cheese.

What is your favourite movie?
Jimena: Wayne’s World
Alex: Tarzan. Reason: 2 montages

What is the best hangover cure?
Jimena: I’ve yet to figure this out. Please help
Alex: Coffee and regret
