King’s 100 is a unique opportunity for a diverse group of 100 students, reflective of the King’s community, to co-create student experience projects and initiatives.
This paid position enables students to work directly with the university, gain valuable professional skills and shape the King’s experience for themselves, and future generations.
Having heard fantastic things about the King’s 100 project from friends, I decided to apply to the 2020/2021 cohort when I was in my second year of studying International Relations. Although the application is not daunting at all, the prospect of being part of a group of 100 students in which I would have to regularly speak up and offer my opinion in front of other students, members of staff and academics worried me.
The thought of asking a question at the end of a lecture of a similar size scared me, and these thoughts soon started creeping up when I applied to King’s 100. Whilst these thoughts stuck with me throughout the application process, I told myself that everybody else in the group would probably feel the same, and so I went for it.
