Jordi Brown
Living in our Camden community comes with its own set of both charms and challenges. My hope is that, as your hall representative, we can work to preserve the former whilst dealing with the latter.

As a proud member of Max Rayne House, I’ve struggled with everyday issues such as having no toaster, broken cupboards and blocked toilets. Like you, I’ve juggled the constant demands of my course with the scramble for the 29 bus in the morning. However, I’ve also come to love a pre-drinking session in our common room before Mully’s karaoke, and bonding with some amazing flatmates in corridor F.

In my view, there are two key elements to being a great hall rep: dealing with complaints quickly and organising great social events. As a prefect and house captain in my previous school, I’ve got a proven track record with both.

Feel free to drop me an email on jordi.brown.19@ucl.ac.uk with any queries. See you on the campaign trail!
Chevonne Du Plessis
I'm Chevonne, and my manifesto to you is simply: I want to better understand student needs, issues and how to balance this with a "lekker" UCL Res experience. As an international student from South Africa, I am here to listen and think about academics, culture, language, engagement and wellbeing at Uni- bringing balance and fun to the "chaos" of it all!
Maya Saengkrachang
Hi! I’m Maya.
I’m standing to be a Hall Rep since I’m motivated to improve the living conditions of postgraduates and undergraduates of every background. I’d like these Halls to be a place that caters to everybody’s academic and social needs. I have Admin experience (so have the organisation and prioritisation skills required by this role) but also experience with community work so I can voice your concerns and motivate direct action from staff.
If I had the opportunity to be a Hall Rep I would start with…

- Trying to introduce food waste bins in each kitchen, in order to make the Halls “greener” (since as a member of GreenPeace this is my interest)
- Trying to install a printer in each of the Halls for everyone’s convenience
- Introducing social activities year round for each of the Halls (for example, reviving the “farm”)

If I got the position, I would be prompt in answering queries and advocating your ideas and would be easy to reach, so please give the opportunity to work with you. Have a good day!
Anna Balazs
HALL REP MANIFESTO – Anna Balazs

I am an international student, from Hungary, living in Max Rayne House. I believe that our halls can be happy places and I will make sure that everyone feels at home here!
If elected, I will ensure that every problem, suggestion and question will be heard and answered.

My main goals are:

- Providing a clean environment
- Bringing the community together with the help of social events, both inside/outside the halls
- Organising events for every taste: sports, clubbing, movie nights, quiz nights, a hall ball
- Having an ongoing conversation on your concerns
- Creating a supportive and fun community in the heart of Camden Town
- Helping you to connect with people

It is nice to be part of this community, and I hope I can give back something to you!

Best wishes,
Anna Balazs
Yajing Zhou
Hey everyone! I am Yajing, originally from China, currently an LLM student at UCL. I have been living in Ann Stephenson House for one month now. I really love the community, but I see many areas that need improvement, which is what I want to give all of you!
I’m a kind-hearted, innovative and hard-working person, which I believe are the perfect traits of a hall representative! This is my second master’s degree and I have already gained work experience as an associate in China, which has given me great communicational and organizational skills.
As a hall representative I intend to use my skillset to improve the security of our community, the maintenance such as heating and water in the buildings and create a warm and fabulous environment for all residents, guests and staff!
I will be a great hall representative always doing my best to improve our community, and will always be open for your suggestions.
Best,
Yajing Zhou
Sophie Nagasinghe
Hi,
I’m Sophie Nagasinghe from France, also half Sri Lankan. I’m here at UCL as an exchange English student for a year. I would like to have the honor of representing 109 Camden Road this year. I would describe myself as a happiness enthusiast; when I’m around I don’t only help people out but also look after their personal well-being.

I’m looking forward to take this responsibility as I have handled similar tasks since Middle School. I’m planning a number of social events and will handle any administrative issues in our hall.

If you choose me as your hall rep, my mains goals will be:

• Improving the safety and security of our accommodation

• Organizing social and cultural events such as trips, Olympiads, where I’ll ensure everyone is in together

• Making the place more affordable by advocating a better rent

I’m ready to face and fight for our rights and for what you want, any suggestions are welcome, so always feel free to talk to me and I’ll be right there to support you.

And obviously don’t forget to vote for me so that I can make our goals real!!!

Thank you.

Sophie.
Andrei Tuiu
For a University that likes to use the word “disruptive” a whole lot, the only disruption ever seen at UCL’s 109 Camden Road accommodation site is clogged toilets and the occasional false fire alarm. My name is Andrei Tuiu, a BSc Economics student, and while some may see my being a fresher as a liability, perhaps a proof of lack of experience, I see it as a breath of fresh air in a community that has seen its fair share of days and “experiences”.
For this reason, it is my goal to help every one of 109 Camden Road’s residents make the most of their time here, as long- or short-lived as that may be, even if by just a little bit. Social justice, community engagement, sustainability all sound like nice ideas, noble goals towards which we all must head. However, if not put into practice, little separates these ideals from empty words. Which is why my plans for my tenure as Hall Rep include: making the campus at 109 Camden Road more accessible to disabled students, ensuring that life here stays classy and fun, through regular parties and events, as well as ensuring a higher level of cleanliness. I also want to make clear my intention to bring this campus to a higher level of environmental implication, by protecting and even enlarging our green spaces. So, then. Are you in?
Hanting Cui
Hello to all the students living in Ifor Evans Hall!

Brief Intro:
1. I'm Hanting, also known as Christina;
2. Being a student representative throughout my uni life developed my ability on bridging the gap between uni and students and gained experiences on organizing activities.
3. I will listen carefully to your voice, organize various community activities, communicate with uni on all kind of resident related issue, and it is my responsibility to always speak on your side.

The most important part is to communicate with you:
- Collect your issues, expects and advises through online platforms (WhatsApp, Facebook, WeChat, etc.) and offline communications.
Mainly but not only about the following points:
- Safety
- Hygiene
- Food (if you are catered)
- Entertainment (social networking, theme parties)
- Accessibility of commonplace (common room, music room, reception, etc.)
- Build an official Facebook page/group or ins official account or website for you to public official activities and your events.
- Organize activities based on your choices.

Tanish Kharab
Hello! I am Tanish Kharab. I am running for hall rep and here are a few things I would like to contribute to our halls.

1. Safety: Just a few weeks back one of our hallmates got over £1000 quid and her passport stolen from her. To begin with, I would like to ensure the correct placement of security cameras across 109 Camden and ensure that each hall door’s locking mechanism works correctly (often the doors don’t close correctly and can be opened without keys).
2. Sports: I would like to organise teams from our halls to participate in weekly friendly games with other societies in UCL. Lots of hallmates have expressed they would like to play football, basketball and badminton tournaments, but we could also organise other sport events.
3. Socials: Alongside hall parties and nights out, I want to help create an inclusive environment for everyone at 109 Camden by having events including quizzes, karaoke, movie nights and more!
4. Facilities: Several hall-mates have informed me that some facilities including the printer in the computer room and tennis court in our halls do not meet their expectation. I would like to bring these issues
Dengkui Zhao
Hello, everyone! My name is Dengkui Zhao, originally from China, living in Ann Stephenson House now. And I am running for the position of Hall Rep because I think it is a good chance for me to make convenient services for you.

When I was an undergraduate, working as a staff of student union for 3 years, so I have enough experience on communicating with university’s departments, like persuading them to solve some important questions, and accepting your suggestions to improve work efficiency. Besides, I worked as a psychological counsellor for my class around 4 years and received formal training, so it is easy for me to listen to students’ problems and give them suitable ideas to help them solve problems.

If elected I would aim to make our lives better. Firstly, helping students solve daily problems with your living facilities and ask for help from departments timely. Secondly, I will utilize empty places and tennis court to organize diverse sports and cultural activities. Thirdly, I will organize more parties with other dormitories to help us make more friends.

Thank you for reading my manifesto and feel free to contact me to ask any questions. Please vote for me!
GUSTAVO MALDONADO
Hi, if we have not met yet at breakfast or dinner, my name is Gustavo Maldonado. I want to be your Hall Rep and this small manifesto is the only campaign that I would do to explain why you should vote for me. I think that false promises and advertisement are the global problem of all kind of elections. For that reason, the only true proposal that I am going to assure you is that I will work hard every day to try to solve all the small problems that irritate us and does not allow us to enjoy our life experience as a student in the hall (and plan some social events of course :D). I am a very friendly postgraduate student and I have experience with this kind of roles. I will be here the whole year to support you and face any hall issue. Vote for me and I will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible!
Omar Hamod
I am Omar Hamod and I am running to be your Hall Rep.
Why, you might wonder? Because I want to work with all of you to make the halls a better place for each of us.

COMMUNITY
Just like UCL, our global university, I believe our diverse halls should be a community where everyone is welcome and accepted. Whether you’re from Hong Kong or Nigeria, Surrey or Romania (like me!) we should all feel at home.

SOCIALS
So, you’d love to meet all the other people from different parts of the world but you’re jaded to your corridor?
As your representative, I’d love to organise several social events this year, where we have fun together - there would be something for anybody, as I’d be open to your proposals, be it a cozy movie night or a good old-fashioned quiz evening!

(Y)OUR NEEDS
What if more socials just isn’t what you actually need? Maybe you’re concerned about the halls’ security? Mattress too hard on your back?
No matter your issue, I promise to listen, address it to the Administration and lobby for a solution and your well-being.

For everybody’s well-being.
Pu Pu
I am Pu Pu specialized in MA TESOL in-service. I am pretty much interested in applying to be a hall student representative for Ifor / Max Payne / Ann...
I have been working for a couple of years in China and gained some hands-on experience in dealing with various types of individuals. I am open-minded and passionate about socializing and organizing activities, which offers me a unique opportunity to better understand what is going on around me. Surely I am a trustworthy listener and I would like to be a link, hearing the voices of the individuals and communicating with the staff.
Rastislav Jonis
Make the halls great again!
I am the man of the people and I am here to deliver. You want more social events in the halls? I’ve got you. Taps leaking? I’ll send someone over. Camdexit? Referendum.

Maybe we don’t know each other but I am here for you. I live in the same halls and experience a lot of the same problems as you do and I want to help with solving them. I will be right there, in the group chats, noting down your daily struggles and hopes for better tomorrow and I will do my utmost best to use the student’s union money to make things happen.

About me. My favourite colour is dark blue, favourite song is Imagine by Lennon. I do have experiences in representing others as a frequent delegate on MUN conferences and I find pleasure in arguing with authorities (for the greater good of course). The bottom line is – we are in it together.

Yours one true rep.
Junhua Liu
I'm patient, I am a good listener,
I'm smart, I am a problem solver,
I'm sensitive, I do care!
So
Pick me! Choose me! Vote me!

Hi, I am Joanna, living in Ifor, you may not know me...yet, you can get to know more about me from now on.
Getting into this is a big challenge for me because I'm not that popular and many of you may never talk with me before.
Sounds like I am not the right person? Think twice, this means I have time to listen, and I would listen carefully besides I'm smart I can always find means to solve problems, so be my guest if you have some!
I will track down if troubles come to me and I am the one you can count on!
Evelyn Faccion
About me
Hi! I’m Evelyn Faccion, I’m a first-year student from Max Rayne studying Education Studies and I’m hoping to be a hall representative. Being 22-years old and having done one year of university before I have experience of University life. I’m dying my hair purple so I’ll be easy to spot! VOTE FOR PURPLE!

Why vote for me
At the core of everything for me is honesty and transparency, I care for people and my values reflect that. I’ll be opening a forum of which ideas can posted, and I’ll take it up with the management.

Given our area is not the safest, I believe we would benefit from more socials, of your choosing! I’ll open a doodle poll of which everyone can vote out a few viable options. This will hopefully give us a greater sense of community given we are further away from Uni than most other people. With the added expense of laundry, I will be investigating alternatives into reducing costs, such as buddy and/or loyalty schemed, *this is subject to management approval.
My values
· More social events – doodle poll will be opened with options for you to choose!
· Cheaper laundry scheme*
· Open to suggestions – forum will be opened to receive your suggestions!
Laiba Khan
Who I am
Hi Everyone! I’m Laiba, originally from East London, living in Ifor Evans now and a first year geography student.

Why I’m suited for the role:
- Having extensive knowledge of London, methodical management skills, unique ideas and being highly sociable and approachable makes me the perfect candidate
- Having been in Youth council I am knowledgeable on communicating idea between student populations and staff members
- I’m just overall a great listener - no word of a lie I have the best memory
- Being a Londoner I know the BEST places to hold social events or just give general advice about the area

What I plan to do:
- More social events in our NEW common room (which most halls don’t even have)- events such as movie screening, pizza parties and games tournaments so we all actually get to know each other and form a kind of community
- Making friends at uni can be daunting especially if you’re not the most extroverted person- having organised events will defiantly ease the stress and free food with good music is a plus
- Trying to cut the rent, or negotiate at least to have cheaper laundry facilities would be one of my priorities
