We are both disabled students’ who are passionate and determined to rebuild the Disabled Students’ Network from the grassroots, creating a space where disabled students’ can be heard, visible, and support each other in fighting to break down the barriers we face at university.

Why are you standing?: 

Hi there, I'm an international disabled student in UCL. I'm the first year student under the department of Statistical Science.

Having had the disability since I was two years old, from feeling embarrassed by it to being an optimist, I sincerely hope that I can devote my passion, honesty and diligence to this position. I'll do my best to represent our disabled students' needs, within UCL and on a London-wide and national level.

Helping others, especially disabled people, is to provide what they truly need and try not to let them feel uncomfortable.

Why are you standing?: 

I would love to become Disabled Students Officer as I would like to promote welfare, disability awareness and a more friendlier open campus for a better experience for all students & especially those with disability at UCL. As last year as a fresher, I felt isolated and on campus as there was no sufficient outlet or welfare system in place to help me transition to university as I knew how huge the step it was to adjust to university is a daunting and scary prospect, especially having a disability, fearing more that there will be not enough adequate help or guidance from UCL and Union itself to help me through this transition, therefore having a tough year transitioning into university. Therefore I feel no student on campus especially those with disabilities to not feel this or be judged negatively or underrepresented on campus, therefore working on promoting disability awareness & welfare for a more friendly campus with talks and dedicate weeks to focus to bring such awareness, more services provided to help students on campus & signposts on campus to promote a more open friendlier campus for all.
