Jilly’s 70th Birthday!

Today is Jilly’s 70th birthday and we would love to wish her a very happy birthday! Jilly has been a part of International Students house for 30 years now and still working with the team one day a week, she is a valued member of staff, holding much of the history of the House and maintaining friendship and connections with alumni all around the globe.

Jilly has had many accomplishments throughout working at ISH. However, one that stands out is in November 2018 Jilly was honoured by being presented the Freedom of the City of London award.
