Tomiris Khatim
Hello! My name is Tomi and I am interested in becoming President. Unfortunately we didn’t have the opportunity to get to know each other well, so here’s a little about me. I was born in Astana but live in Almaty. I study History Politics & Economics, and finished A Level in Cambridge. I like literature, theatre, fashion and film. I wanted to be a part of UCLKS since I sent in my UCAS and since then I realised that I love being a part of such a welcoming and friendly society. I think it is important for Kazakh students abroad to support each other. I believe I am fit for this role as I have been a part of Student Council and Leadership teams since Year 5. This year I was part of the Media Team, as well as head of Job Fair '21, which gave me even more experience of organising plans, events and people together. I am also very open and friendly, I love communicating and interacting with others. Here are a few things I had in mind for next year: many social events to make up for Covid, game, movie, bar nights, celebrations like Nauryz, 8th of March, etc; in person events with speakers and professionals on various topics; an event with Kazakh UCL alumni for contact and for current students to ask questions/advice; finalise UCLKS merchandise; closer connections and events with other societies; create interesting content for our social media (Instagram lives, Q&As, Youtube).
I hope I am a worthy candidate and I would love to be president of our society.
Sincerely, Tomi Khatim

I want to provide a place for students which they can call home.
As a first year student in the pandemic era I know how important a safety pillow is when facing uncertainty and not being able to communicate with your peers. However, this is not the outcome of the pandemic itself but students coming to an unknown environment with limited knowledge and little guidance therefore facing uncertainty. Being able to create this safety pillow for new students and having a community for people which they can turn to is absolutely essential and I want to create and support that community.
Moreover, I want to create a platform for students to learn and be better versions of themselves by organizing workshops featuring top professionals of the fields on top the Career Panels. Having those workshops together would further strengthen our community and be a perfect opportunity for students to acquire or further improve their skills.
In addition, I want to expand our society and start organising events in collaboration with Kazakh educational companies where we could share our experiences with the public or create workshops of our own for the fellow students in Kazakhstan. This would give us a platform to contribute and influence the education Kazakhstan in a positive way.
I acknowledge the amount of pressure and responsibility this position has. I am ready to give it my all in order to continuously improve and excel to present a better experience for every member of UCL Kazakh society
