Why are you standing?: 

Hi I'm Zohar, I study Molecular Biology and I have an autoimmune illness. I have been the Disabled Students Network Campaigns Officer and LGBT+ Disabled Students' Rep in the past, and I believe I can do even more for our community as Disabled Students' Officer. Over the past year I created the DSN advice zine by & for disabled students and successfully advocated for students whose access needs were not being met by their departments. I also started a campaign to increase the availability of accommodation discounts for disabled students.

If elected, I aim to:

• Make sure that departments respect your rights and your SORA

• Campaign for increased mental health funding and more accessible facilities

• Make the accessible accommodation discount scheme available to all disabled students in halls

• Increase the visibility & presence of DSN by holding more social events, starting a social media campaign and supporting members’ projects

I believe that solidarity has a real impact on our lives as disabled people, and I want to build a stronger community where disabled students feel supported and empowered.

If you would like to talk about any of my ideas, please do get in touch with me at zcbtzm0@ucl.ac.uk
