Hi Friends, I’m Muazzim and my manifesto will focus on improving the family system, students’ welfare, and engagement.
Firstly, I believe that the MSOC Family system is very important in forming the bond between junior and seniors as well as amongst juniors. As Covid restrictions disrupted many of our in-person activities last year, I’m aiming to revive most or all our activities like potluck, games night and festive dinners. In addition, I wish to introduce new activities like book exchange and inter-family tele-match to provide more opportunities for interaction between family members.
Secondly, I would love to focus on the physical and mental welfare of all the students. For mental health, I will organise talks by professional speakers to increase awareness about the importance of mental health, signs of stress and burnouts, and how to handle them which is significant for students. I will also work to create a neutral platform for students to voice out their concerns and worries to ease the process of getting help from the university. For physical welfare, a monthly Zumba session will be held.
Finally, to ensure that the BOD is constantly connected with the member of MSOC, I propose a UCL MSOC Discord server where everyone can just pop in to hang out, chat and discuss anything, anywhere and anytime. I am also planning to send out a monthly supportive and informative email newsletter to all members to encourage them and share tips and quotes to keep everyone motivated.

Malaysian society is a place where Malaysians unite and support each other, hence why I’m running for this role. I wish to put myself in a position where I am able to cultivate a supportive environment, foster relationships, and enhance a sense of belonging to our society.
I believe that being a great leader starts from being a good listener. It is essential for me to listen to all member’s opinions so that we, the BODs can improve our initiatives for this society. As such, I would do regular check-ups on all departments and provide support whenever it's needed.
I also look forward to fostering relationships between members of the society, especially between seniors and freshers. On the other hand, I wish to further improve the mentor-mentee system by having more mentors per course and come up with a list of “what to expect” for each module on our website to allow better preparation for the freshers.
During my RD program, I learned that working as a team to organize events brings far better joy than working individually. The process of brainstorming, discussing, and executing plans with my fellow team members gave me a sense of fulfillment that no academic achievement can replace. Therefore, to continue this journey of self-development, in the hopes of making more meaningful relationships, I take my chances by nominating myself as Vice President and Welfare Officer.

Apa khabar saudara-saudarimu!

MSoc is great in the way that it actively tries to act as the pillar of support and bring a sense of community to us despite the challenges of the pandemic, and I would love to contribute towards furthering and continuing these ideals and impacts.

If elected, I plan to focus on the following issues:

Persevering through and after COVID-19
1. Introduce a mental health support circle and increase the role of Welfare
2. Work with Events to hold more networking/social events
3. Introduce a mini newsletter on COVID and general health updates

Community and Belonging
1. Improve the family system to be more engaging through an adaptive allocation processes (such as by location if the pandemic persists and greater consideration of interests and personalities)
2. Increase the role of the M'sia course help groups (include but not limited to preparing mini guides/summaries about the course)
3. Encourage physical and active meetings if the pandemic allows it (examples include extreme parks, picnics, mini family-oriented outings to markets and attractions)

My relevant experience include:
• Member of the RD team
- Organising Chairperson (Kopi with Shopee)
- Vice-Organising Chairperson (Virtual Escape Room)
• Organising Committee of two Model United Nations conferences
- Chief/Under Secretary General of Logistics and Administration (ReformMUN 2019)
- Chief/Under Secretary General of Internal Committee Affairs (SKISMUN 2018)

Since becoming a student at UCL, I have been able to participate in the events and initiatives that MSoc has organized. To name a few: the PreDeparture Meet, Malaysian Night, the RD Programme and the weekly Games Nights. Now that I have the opportunity, I would like to give back to the society that has helped me so much. Secondly, I am interested in the wellbeing of students, so the position of Vice President/Welfare Officer naturally attracted me. The idea of “creating a home away from home” is something that I would particularly emphasize in my position. I want to continue this committee’s work in supporting Malaysian students – especially those away for the first time – at UCL.

Why me?

Firstly, I have had the privilege of being involved in the Representative Director Programme, where I held the position of Vice President for the Careers Team. This has helped me practice skills of teamwork and communication, particularly over a virtual setting. I have also held previous leadership experiences from my college. I was the Vice President in Student Council, where I attended the college’s board meetings. Additionally, I was also the project lead for Pawsitive Papers, a recurring fundraising event for underprivileged students. Here I learnt how to lead a team, as well as communication skills with external parties, such as charities and non-governmental organisations. Overall, I believe that all these past experiences have enabled me to become a better, empathetic leader.
