Vladimir Kalinovskiy

Why are you standing?: 

Hi, my name is Vladimir Kalinovskiy and I am one of the disabled students. Last year I felt that there was inadequate support for students with disabilities, so I strive for the changes and decided to run for the Disabled Students’ Network Campaigns Officer

My scientific background has allowed me to develop analytical and problem-solving skills, which helps me to get to the depths of challenging issues and always look for the most effective solutions.

If elected I would aim to:

• Lead campaigns on raising public awareness of physical and mental disabilities across UCL and help disabled students to integrate into the community

• Install a comprehensive feedback system, so students with disabilities can reflect on their experience

• Develop special training for societies/staff members on supporting disabled students

I strongly believe that these aims will help us, students with disabilities, because proper communication is key for an adequate help. Moreover, many students do not declare disability, because of a fear of discrimination and prejudice, so raising awareness will make environment more welcoming and increase the visibility of disabled students.

Thank you for reading my manifesto and feel free to contact me, if you have any questions about my ideas. My
