Mihaillo Pusica
Hi everyone! My name is Mihaillo, and I’m a second-year BSc Biochemistry student from Toronto, Canada.

Even though the opportunity to be a Treasurer for different societies hasn’t been available to me, I’ve had loads of experience that would make me a great candidate. To be a successful Treasurer, organization, reliability, attention to detail, and keeping well to deadlines are all essential skills that are required. I’ve always been invested in extracurriculars at school and co-founded/led societies whenever given the slightest hint of interest from peers. Being goal oriented and driven are few of many qualities that I possess that would benefit our society. I’d love to help keep us organized with events, oversee expenditures, and keep a file on all actions taken by new/existing members.

In order for a society to be successful, it must grow. In order to attract more students, more buzz over planned events has to be created. By raising the total budget of our society, I’d be given the opportunity to organize various interactive events. Fundraisers and sponsorships are two of many ways in which I plan on growing the society’s budget to hold workshops, among other opportunities in educating existing and new members of all the wonders of our field. Over the past few months, I’ve been working in a lab focusing on DBS – Dried Blood Spot stability and storage. Tackling vital issues such as this drove my hunger to spread awareness for research and education on all aspects.

Succeeding as Treasurer requires good organisational skills, reliability, as well as a thorough understanding of the various bureaucratic functions and processes which make up the UCL Student’s Union. I have had experience dealing with the UCL SU in various roles during my time at UCL, in particular, when I was involved with the Law for All Society as the Events Officer. Moreover, this enabled me to develop a strong relationship with the Treasurer of the society, which offered me a greater insight into the difficulties of the role and the necessary requirements to succeed. Understandably as a nascent society, I also recognise the importance of raising our total budget, in order to have the ability to organise social events if, and when, social distancing rules permit them. In order to increase the society’s total budget, I will work on arranging various sponsorships in order to reach mutually beneficial agreements which do not compromise the ethos of the society. Moreover, I will look to revise the current membership options available to ensure that prices are fair, and reflect the events which are hosted.
I hope that you will agree that my prior experience and my plans for future development will be greatly beneficial in assisting the present and future running of the society; ultimately enabling it to thrive into an established part of UCL’s extracurricular body.
