Rachel MacRae

Committee role: President & Alumni Officer

Degree: BSc (Hons) Molecular Genetics – 5th Year

Years experience: > 10 years

A wee bit about Rachel: After giving up curling 2 years prior to arriving in Edinburgh, I decided I may as well give it a second chance when I got to university. Now I’ve been on committee for 4 years so I must be having a good time! The club has had a hugely positive impact on my life; from the lifelong friends I’ve made to my time photographing with WorldCurling in Canada. It’s by far my favourite aspect of uni and I couldn’t ask for a better sports fam.

Yiwen Huang

Committee role: Treasurer

Degree: BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences – 4th Year

Years experience: 2.5 years (Started at University)

A wee bit about Yiwen: This is my third year on committee. I was born and raised in sub-tropical region and I hadn’t even seen snow until I was 17. I joined the club when I was a fresher with no curling experience but now I enjoy every single second on ice. (Despite falling numerous times and getting edema on my knee at the very beginning……) When I first joined the club, I was very very shy but EUCC has its own welcoming vibe to help you blend in and become a part of it. I love the way that EUCC is a relatively small club and gives me this cozy feeling whenever I am with our members.

Everything about curling is amazing until your Asian parents use it as an excuse to make you do more sweeping in the house!
