Amanda Timmerman
My name is Amanda, and I am running for the position of Welfare Officer of the UCL Autism Society. I am committed to ensuring this society continues to be a place where all feel welcome, accepted and valued.

My experience and skills:
Coming from a background in undergraduate psychology and creative writing, I am equipped with interpersonal skills and creativity which I can bring to the role. Additionally, through working in the education sector, I have supported students at all age ranges.

Currently, I am studying MSc Clinical Mental Health Sciences which is increasing my understanding of mental health every day. I am confident my learning and personal experience of being on the autism spectrum will help me support members of the UCL Autism Society.

If elected, I would aim to:
1. Work with the society's leadership team to plan regular opportunities to socialise both remotely and in-person.
2. Actively help resolve conflicts.
3. Signpost to helpful resources that increase awareness and understanding of autism.
4. Work with the society's leadership team to network with UCL's autism researchers.

Thank you for reading my manifesto. I am happy to answer any questions at: [email protected]
Danilo Paganelli
Hey! My name is Danilo and I would absolutely love to be the welfare officer for the Autism Society! I am autistic myself and have spent a lot of my life being frustrated and upset at the ignorance that there is about autism, and hence as my role I would promote things such as "Autism Awareness Week" around UCL in order to raise awareness. As the welfare officer, I would ensure that everyone in the society has their voice heard and would work hard to help anyone who has a problem, however big or small. I am on the committee for the UCL Disability Student Network and LGBTQIA+ Student Network, so there would be links to those for sharing resources and ideas in order to promote more change and awareness. My goal in life is to help people and make them happy, and one of the ways I want to do that is by improving the stigma of autism and raise awareness for it. I am also a very responsible person - last year I ran five societies, including creating a "Autism and Disability" Group. I will not let you down!
