Katherine Reid - Senior Midshipman
My name is Kat Reid and I am the Senior Midshipman of Southampton URNU. I am currently studying Geography at Southampton University and will be in my final year in 2016/17. As Senior Midshipman, I work alongside the Commanding Officer and Command Team to ensure the students gain the best experiences from their time in the unit.
Since joining the unit in my first year I have been exposed to new skills and experiences from weekly sports sessions to deployments and sea weekends to formal dinners and divisional socials. I have been lucky enough to be given to opportunity to enhance my public speaking, leadership and teamwork skills and will be able to develop them and my confidence further as Senior Midshipman.
During my time as SMid I want to make sure the SURNU experience is the best one possible with the students doing new activities and being able to take charge of their drill nights and the running of events and activities throughout the year. I believe it is the people in the unit, the friendships and memories that make being a member of SURNU so unique and I am really looking forward to fulfilling the role of Senior Midshipman and leading the unit into a new and successful academic year.
