John Morgan
I'm standing to be Secretary of the Diplomacy Society because I'm confident I can have a positive impact on our society. I've been a member of the Diplomacy Society for the past two years. In that time I've greatly enjoyed the events the society has hosted. I would value the opportunity to get involved further. One reason I feel I'm a good fit for this position is my strong organizational skills. I'm very good at responding to emails and taking notes. I feel confident that I could competently preform any task I needed to do as Secretary. Finally, I'm passionate about international affairs. My degree at UCL is in politics and international relations. In my free time I follow what's happening around the world on Twitter and other news sites. Thank you for your consideration.
Ana Mateias
As an International Relations and Politics student, diplomacy has become my main field of interest. It would also be a great honour to continue the legacy of one of the best-established societies at UCL and to follow the footsteps of the previous committee. My activity as a member of the committee will include making sure that there will be continuity in organising weekly speakers events with notable figures from the political and diplomatic body, that every member will have an opportunity to get properly involved with the society and enhance their CV by gaining experience in the field.
Saulet Tanirbergen
I am currently a first year studying Politics, Sociology and Eastern European studies. I believe that I am the perfect fit for the position of secretary because I am responsible, meticulous and very, very passionate about diplomacy. I currently am the Head Columnist for the News column of the Diplomacy Review and I really enjoyed being part of the magazine and the club in general. I want to be as active in the club as possible going forward and I think the position of secretary is ideal. I like to aid others in various tasks and I also think that communicating is my forte. In high school, I was in the leadership team of both Model United Nations (MUN) and our school literary magazine, so I have the experience necessary to fulfill my role. I'd love to be part of the leadership team next year so please give me a vote:)
Natalia Desselberger
During the past academic year, I have really enjoyed being part of Diplomacy Society as a member and Head of Events. As Secretary, I would like to increase participation by spreading the word about the society's work on our web platforms. I would market our events to reach more students groups so we can build on our fantastic member base and bring Diplomacy Society to the forefront of international affairs debates at UCL.

I am suited to this role because I am dedicated to the society and have previous experience with managing online presence. In my committee role this year, I was given partial responsibility in monitoring our Facebook and email accounts. Above all, I pride myself on my organisation and believe I can run administrative operations smoothly whilst expanding our outreach at the same time.
