Ieva Sturina
Hi everyone!
My name is Ieva Sturina, I’m a first-year PPE student running for the position of Social Enterprise VP. This past year I have been a first-year executive in Business Society where I most enjoyed working on the Impact Investment Championship with the SE division and organising the Social Enterprises and Sustainability panel for our first ever non-FOD. For both events, I not only participated in the organisational aspect but also invited and networked with speakers from the industry, which truly made me more aware of and interested in careers that make an impact. So, my aim next year is to broaden the range of events for our members by:
- organising a conference featuring start-ups, social enterprise firms, charitable and voluntary organisations
- creating a competition similar to IIC and Shark Tank for social enterprise
- providing opportunities to work with businesses by expanding our Student Social Entrepreneurship Scheme
In regards to outreach, I will focus on expanding our mentorship scheme in underprivileged schools by partnering with firms to provide students with knowledge on the schemes available to them.
Hope you will vote for me!
Amal Malik
My passion for social entrepreneurship stems from my observations of socio-economic disparities in Pakistan, my home. From observing the suffering of men and women who could not afford to educate their children, to the starvation of homeless stray dogs, I vowed to myself to one day return and contribute to society with permanent solutions that would work towards eroding barriers to equal opportunities. Stumbling upon Enactus Society at UCL, I gained the opportunity to devise and lead an enterprise that addressed one of many pertinent issues in Pakistan, which was poor menstrual hygiene. Through this, I realised the beauty of social enterprise, in that its beneficiaries can be permanently empowered – they don’t have to constantly rely on donations but are enabled to generate their own revenue and contribute to a chain of social justice, changing lives for generations.

Having created and sustained a social entrepreneurship project this year, I understand what it takes to run one and deliver results, even in the midst of a pandemic. I hope that by using my own strategies to create alternative solutions, especially when faced with limited funding or R&D, I can enable other teams to work for causes that are close to their hearts, spread awareness about social entrepreneurship through the Business Society and foster collaboration with other societies. It would be my honour to be 2021-22’s Social Enterprise VP.
