Abdul Halim

Why are you standing?: 

Representing the views of the people is not something that should be taken lightly. From working as a Mentor to leading in community projects I understand how important it is that ones concerns are brought to attention and helped however possible. Being a passionate student I understand the many struggles and concerns that we face and I will strive to make it be heard.

I pledge to undertake the following for my life science colleagues:

- To ensure that all lectures are uploaded in a suitable time frame so that we can revisit lectures whilst they are fresh in our minds.

- Encouragement of intercalation of students in the Faculty of Life Sciences.

- Have more seminars and workshops about the different opportunities we have in terms of research and careers.

- Giving all students including those with learning disabilities alternative ways they could approach their studies.

Tong Gao

Why are you standing?: 

To be a good leader, one must first be willing to sacrifice themselves for the better of the community. To give up time and energy to put in the work, and this is what I want to stand for as the faculty rep for life sciences undergraduate. I've known for quite a long time that my passion and interests lay in the science field, and to be able to learn more about it in such a diverse and multidimensional university is a privilege. Having grown up in three different cities- Johannesburg, Melbourne and Shanghai, I've known how to appreciate and work with differences my whole life. I've also had lots of previous experiences working with a big group of personalities, such as being the international captain and part of the student leadership team in my high school in Australia. If I am successful in this running, I would like to leverage from these past opportunities and try my best to ensure positive communication between the faculty and the student group. I believe that, in one of the most open-minded universities in the world, everyone aims to be a better version of themselves. These aspirations are what will constantly improve our learning environments, and continue to motivate students to learn from each other.

Hi everyone! My name is Valerie and I am a second-year Biotechnology student thrilled by the opportunity to become your next Life Sciences Faculty Rep. I am running for this role because I have always found it particularly rewarding when people come to me with a problem or an idea and I am able to implement it for the benefit of them and everybody else. If you vote for me, I would love to use my knowledge and passion to make your experience at UCL as pleasant and fulfilling as possible!

Why are you standing?: 

I was always interested in changes and innovations. Especially in those which can help my course, faculty and university achieve greater academic and social goals.

I strongly believe that each year should bring some positive changes to the life of students and I will be glad to help people from different faculties, countries and backgrounds bring something new to our community.
