Yer boi, Wasi (Esports), is running for President of UCL Gaming Society in the upcoming academic year!

With hopes of the pandemic subsiding, I am looking to reintroduce regular in-person events throughout the upcoming academic year. With the creation of CLUE, we will now be able to organise large intercollegiate events, such as socials and casual events, as well as competitive LAN events, which will take UCL Gaming to the next level.

As the current esports officer, I've been able to take part in a number of events throughout the past year, aiding in the organisation of several charity live streams, leading the esports scene here at UCL Gaming (reaching new heights during the past year), as well as establishing connections with several other gaming societies throughout the country. I want to continue to take UCL Esports to even greater heights, as well as staying a well-engaged member of the community that’s been built here.

Finally, I want UCL Gaming to continue to be a place where you can meet new people and make long-lasting friends. As someone who was a bit shy coming into University, UCL Gaming was an outlet for me to meet new people, and I've made so many great friends through UCL Gaming. The pandemic has made it quite difficult to meet new people, and I know some people have had a hard time as a result, but I want to make sure that UCL Gaming can be the same for other people as it was for me.

Thank you for reading, and I hope I've earned your vote! :D

I was incredibly lucky over the last year to have the trust of so many of you to help keep this community moving in the right direction, and while there has been more than a few roadblocks, I hope to get your trust again to help us get back on our feet. Despite a difficult year where a lot of what we wanted wasn’t possible, I am still just as optimistic about the next and I hope to be given the opportunity to make a lot of what I envisioned come true.
Having been president for the last year, I’ve done my best to make sure that we stay connected as much as possible despite the challenges we’ve had to face. Although we haven’t been able to enjoy some of the in-person events like karaoke and the arcade, we’ve managed to build the society in a new direction that I hope will persist even once covid is inevitably gone. We’ve participated in two 24-hour charity live streams, we have an online varsity coming up with a wide range of games against Imperial, and of course the CLUE partnership with other nearby universities.

There are a lot of components to in-person events that some of my committee members haven’t encountered before, such as communicating with venues booking, organising and managing these events. I have a lot of committee experience pre-covid that I believe is necessary to make sure we can get back on our feet and back to in person events effectively.

Thank you for these last four years, looking forward to the fifth.
