Danilo Paganelli
Hey! My name is Danilo and I would love to be the secretary for the GenFem society! I am a very organised person - last year, I ran 5 socieites - and I would do my very best to make sure that I can help the society as much as I can. I am the secretary for the UCL Disability Student Network and the UCL LGBTQIA+ Student Network, so this would be a great benefit having a link between the three. I would ensure that everyone in the society feels listened to and ensure that feedback given is responded to. I will be there for every member of the society and try to resolve any issues if any arise. In this position, I would also love to start collecting petitions related to Equality and women's rights that could be shared in the newsletter.
Natalie Calderon
I joined the GenFem society because I am super passionate about women's rights and wanted a way to be able to channel that while continuing to learn more about gender inequality internationally in Uni. I have really, really enjoyed my time so far and have loved the various events that have been hosted, ranging from super interesting talks about African feminism to having a hilarious Murder Mystery night! I wasn't able to get as involved as I would've liked to this term because of some of the events' timings and the time difference, but I would love to get even more engaged and involved next year. This has motivated me to run for this position! I think it will be a great way to stay active and part of such a fun (and important!) society, while also being able to take a bit more responsibility and more of a hands-on role. I have a passion for writing, so being able to contribute to the newsletter would be super rewarding and exciting. Further, I would consider myself organised and detail oriented, skills that would help in the note-taking, writing and producing, and planning aspects of this role. I truly hope that I am successful and able to be part of the team for next year. If not, I know that this role will be filled by an amazing, die-hard feminist! ;) I look forward to the rest of the year, and seeing how the society develops going forward.
Celine Habbal
Having been Head Girl of my school for two years (in charge of Sixth Form, as well as all of primary and secondary), I am accustomed to the intricacies of organisation, teamwork, and communication required in the process of making important decisions - a key feature of the secretary role.
My background as both an English major at UCL and a writer also provide me with the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute to the society's weekly newsletter, alongside any other writing-based tasks.
I also believe that my status as an international student provides me with unique perspectives that may be useful in ensuring that GenFem remains a safe, inclusive space for every member - regardless of their cultural or religious background.
Finally, I am extremely passionate about feminism, so representing this society as your secretary would be an absolute honour to me!
Sitanun Sae-Seung
Hello! My name is Winnie, and next year I will be going into my second year of Chemistry. I am applying for the secretary position because, first and foremost, I am very passionate about feminism, as I'm sure you all are. I would love for the opportunity to be able to act on this passion by helping the leadership team bring you interesting and engaging events, as well as to continue to spread awareness for important issues. I want to continue to help foster an open and accepting environment to facilitate healthy, productive discussions. And also to create a space where we can unite for good causes such as our charity partner. Previously, I have had experience chairing multiple societies which I was responsible for different tasks including organizing events, such as a "Knit-a-thon" to raise awareness for HIV-AIDS. I am organised and detail-oriented and I believe I will bring the necessary skills for this position. Thank you for reading, and I hope you will consider voting for me!
