Chloe Richardson
I am running for this position because I am a passionate member of Amnesty International Society, and I believe I have the experience necessary to effectively serve as Treasurer for the society.
I have been an active member of Amnesty International Society for the past two years. In my first year, I attended events and participated in stalls, as well as volunteering for an online project in which I got a chance to teach students about the importance of human rights and civil liberties.
This year, I am the current Journal Editor for the committee. I am running for Treasurer because I want to continue to be involved with Amnesty International Society next year, and I am experienced in the position of Treasurer. I served as Treasurer for Drama Society and Medieval Society this year, meaning I know exactly how the Union's financial systems work and am comfortable dealing with money for a UCL society. If elected, I believe I have the experience both with being a Treasurer and with Amnesty International Society to be an effective and efficient Treasurer.

Hi! I’m a second year Population Health Sciences student nominating myself for Treasurer. Having seen first hand the wide ranging inequities present within our society through my prior volunteer work tutoring refugees, and having grown up in an environment marred by human rights abuses in Hong Kong, I have a strong desire to address these issues and advocate for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all on a global scale. Being involved with the Amnesty International Society will therefore allow me to do my part in addressing such issues.

Having served as Treasurer for multiple societies at UCL, I have extensive experience liaising with the student union to manage finances, organise events, apply for grants, fundraise for events, and carry out reimbursements. I also have experience working with a range of altruistic NGOs on campaigns focused on marginalized migrants, gender equity, and environmental sustainability. If elected, I hope draw on my prior experience to secure funding for and organise a greater number of external speakers currently working to address global human rights issues, providing members with further insight into the types of campaigning and advocacy opportunities available for students wishing to pursue careers in human rights advocacy, and the challenges that they may face on the path towards that goal.
