Ash Ponder

I am a second year Sports Science student, Co-Chair of the Cook ‘n’ Bake society and have been recently elected as Loughborough Students’ Union Section Chair for Enterprise and Employability 2019-20.

During my first year, I helped co-found Cook ‘n’ Bake, a society aimed at bringing students together with the social and creative power of food. Alongside university commitments and personal training, I run Bake Balance, providing nutritious brownies by post that refuse to sacrifice the fun and enjoyment of traditional baked goods.

International Women’s Day gives a platform and spotlight to the projects by and for women around the world. Sharing what we have overcome and achieved is a powerful means of inspiring positive change. Having a day to focus on women’s efforts is a way to congratulate and encourage empowerment as a collective network.
