Emilia Privat
Hi, I’m Emilia! I was raised and born in New York. When I was 15, I moved to Geneva, Switzerland. I felt homesick and less connected to my roots. I don’t want anyone to feel like an outsider like I did back then, and as the welfare officer of this society, I would be committed to making it an inclusive, welcoming environment for all. At socials, I would ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable by checking in on individuals and introducing them to each other. I would be available for casual talks and have further resources available for help if it is needed. Additionally, I would suggest the implementation of a buddy system based on common interests to meet more people. I would also like to create a bucket list on things to do and see in London for members.

I think I would be a good fit for this role because I have strong communication and interpersonal skills. I love to help others, as I have done through many different volunteer experiences, including work for Enfants du Monde, UNICEF, and IRMO. Being French and Peruvian too, I know what it is like to be a part of different communities and am fascinated by explorations of cultural identity. This is helpful for being able to relate to Americans and people of other nationalities who are interested in learning more about American culture. I am dedicated to helping all feel like they belong, at UCL, and in London.

I’m Anna, a second-year Pharmacology student and I’m running for American Societies Welfare Officer. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic taught me the importance of mental health in a time of crisis. This pandemic illuminated issues surrounding mental health support, which is something I want to help nurture and maintain for members of the society.
I have always been told I’m a good listener, I’ve found that sometimes the best thing I could do for people was to provide acknowledgment of their problems, instead of just trying to give advice and a solution. Of course, I also like providing solutions but I believe that it's imperative to make people feel like they are understood, that their problems are being taken into consideration.
Growing up in London has taught me about the importance of diversity. Going to a North London school has instilled in me that all cultures should be celebrated and I hope to bring this approach to the society. I would do this by hosting events with other societies to celebrate all the cultures campus has to offer.
I would love to provide support for the other members of the society; whether it is by mediating a conflict or if a member just wants someone to talk to. If I become Welfare Officer I will do my best to make sure everyone feels welcome and that they are in a safe environment, on zoom or in person. The well-being of the societies members is my top priority and I will work with the society committee and the Student Union to achieve this.
