Hi, I’m Atta and I’m running to be your next CAS president! Having grown up with the beautiful landscapes of Thailand around me, I’ve always been conscious of the natural world and its significance. With that being said, it is imperative as ever to propel a society that takes action when it comes to our perpetual climate emergency.

Having been the Social Media Director this year, I’ve gained key insight into the workings of our society, attaining the skills to help run CAS smoothly and proficiently, and hopefully have successfully displayed my passion for climate action and environmental biology to you. I loved my role in CAS this year, but alongside this — as my former school’s president of the Climate Change Society — I believe I’ve gained expertise in leading a team in this field effectively and I trust that I have the valuable skills to direct CAS to its full potential.

Due to Covid, I am certain we all have an accumulation of amazing ideas for events that obviously weren’t feasible this year and it’s exciting to think of the possibilities for next year. If elected, my top priority would be to implement these long-awaited events whilst amplifying our effect as a society to life at UCL, taking stronger action and collaborating with external organisations. But, most importantly, I promise to stop UCL from sending us random covid gift bags with UCL coasters and actually start separating the recycling bin from other waste in halls.

I am a current CAS member and UCL VegSoc Committee member, committed to the environment.
I believe effective climate action can only be achieved through the integration of the public into research; I would like to become a bridge that connects public and science, encouraging CAS members to do the same, thus reducing alienation. I learnt about climate impacts and global changes after interviewing UCL Climate Professor Christopher Rapley.
My multicultural background gives me an unbiased impression of others, broadened by experiences like a 10-week volunteering mission in rural Uganda.
The role of CAS president would be hugely benefited by the plethora of skills I obtained there; I came across many sensitive situations, requiring me to be commiserate towards others’ needs, read social cues and respect everyone’s beliefs.
Journalistic writing has made me articulate and able to encapsulate prominent issues while keeping individuals heard and included.
As a final display of my passion, I was recently accepted to participate in the 2041 ClimateForce Antarctica Expedition where I hope to gain strong global connections with fellow adventurers and bring awareness to climate issues. Upon my return, I will start a community engagement project with local bodies like the Castlehaven Community Association. My role would provide a gateway for UCL students to become more involved with the community, educate others, and learn themselves.
