A Student-Politician of Many Firsts.
One of the most successful and celebrated student-politician of her times, Dr. Raghavan was elected for two consecutive years (2015-17) as the Research Students Officer at King's College London Students' Union (KCLSU).
Representing the interests and upholding the rights of the 3200+ research students, she was the first and the only elected officer to have set a precedent on accountability by publishing project reports and monthly updates and holding regular weekly consultations with her constituents. She introduced several novel policies and schemes to enrich the student experience on campus.
Dr. Raghavan’s contributions won her several accolades including her appointment as the first official Student Ambassador of King's Vision 2029.
She was also awarded the Honorary Life Membership at KCLSU in 2017 for her contributions to student welfare and was honoured as the 'Representative of the Year' at the KCLSU Awards ceremony in 2016.
