Gabrielle Buntoro
Hi! My name is Gaby and I am running for a position to be UCL 180DC’s Welfare Officer. As a BSc Psych student with a strong passion in elevating mental health and wellbeing, I am committed to making 180DC a safe and inclusive environment for everyone!

My previous experiences attending 180DC's socials have shown that this club has cultivated a friendly yet informative environment, and I believe organisations such as these play a large part in boosting a student’s well-being. Thus, as your welfare officer, I will further expand this, by:

1. Organizing exciting and insightful socials, with a goal of it being stress-free for all members.
2. Delivering a series of Diversity and Inclusion talks (BAME/LGBTQ+/Disability/etc.) to highlight the importance in making all members in 180DC feel welcomed.
3. Ensuring effective communication between the organisation’s members and the committee, in which no one should be afraid to speak up their ideas and/or thoughts.
4. And lastly, be the first point of support to those experiencing conflicts of any sort within the community, specifically by arranging 1-to-1 talks to those in need.

As your Welfare Officer, my goal is to allow 180DC to be a second home to all members. I will do my very best to make sure that every 180DC member will be provided with the utmost care and support - which all of you deserve!

Thank you for taking your time to read - I hope to work with all of you soon! :)

Hi! I’m Ananya Toshniwal, a first-year ManSci student. Let’s be real- right now none of us really know each other. So, why should you trust me to be a good Welfare Officer for our society?

Witnessing the poor working conditions, established by a construction agency, during my house renovation inspired me to establish Chhatr Chhaya- an NGO focused on uplifting construction workers. This project and my passion for volunteering confirms my interest in social entrepreneurship making 180DC a perfect fit for me. Moreover, as Captain of my alma mater and City Lead of Chattr Chhaya, I was the main communication point between the committee and members. I believe that I can use these communication skills that I developed to create a unique experience for our society.

What’s most important for me is that I highly value the responsibility associated with representation and the opinions and concerns of those around me. I enjoy being of service and if elected, I will strive to create a safe environment for our club by:
-Actively starting conversations to check on our members' well-being and addressing any welfare concerns that arise.
-Creating anonymous forums for members to voice their concerns and suggestions freely- should they feel apprehensive while doing so otherwise.
-Ensuring no bullying or harassment and inclusivity in club events.

I am committed to making these unconventional times easier to navigate for our society. If you resonate with my ideas, do vote for me!
