Yoon Rhee
Hi! My name is Julia and I am running for Events Officer of Medtech as I aim to grow and strengthen the community. I consider myself to be driven and dedicated to this goal.

As a Sixth Form Student Representative, I developed a strong sense of responsibility. Entrusted to lead our school’s biggest social event, I embodied the values of an executive. I built upon this key management skill as an organiser of fundraising initiatives for the 24 Hour Race. Planning events in school, I exemplified creativity in approaching challenges, an ability to collaborate and a determination to succeed. As an Events Officer, I will apply these invaluable skills making me the perfect candidate.

I pledge to grow and strengthen the MedTech Society. First, I aim to achieve this by improving the network by creating an alumni association and collaborating with them to deliver panels. Secondly, I aim to enhance the social activity by organising monthly Q&A sessions that will increase the members’ engagement and interactivity. Finally, I aim to strengthen the society’s reputation for members to gain support for their careers by holding events consistently. I am strongly advocating these three goals as it will make positive improvements for the benefit of the community.

I am passionate to put my manifesto policy into action in order to support members and maintain a strong reputation of MedTech. My experiences along with my skills will make me an invaluable member of the executive team.
Ruohan Liu
I think I am a good fit for this role because I am deeply passionate about the same topics as everyone of you. I had been following Medtech society since the beginning of the course and it has been really an eye-opener to me. I became eager about every event that Medtech hold and participated in every single one of them. This time I am applying to become part of it and engage actively in event organization. I have many ideas of events in mind that I wish to put into practice and organize more interactive workshops where members could become more actively engaged. I believe I am a good candidate for this role because I am very creative in this respect and I foresee my future career in this intermediate zone between medical science and technology, which makes this not only part of interest but also an ambition.
Liv Wiemann
My name is Liv, and this past year I have been a corporate relations officer at the UCL MedTech society. I was involved in building and maintaining relationships with our corporate sponsors and organising our first annual MedTech mentorship Programme. Being part of this committee has been a truly stimulating experience and has given me a profound insight into how the fields of Medicine and Technology overlap. I would love to continue to share this passion with other like-minded students as Event's Officer of next year's committee.

Due to my previous experience, I know what it takes to be a good committee member, and I have realized that success can only be achieved if everyone can have a say. Therefore, I will be committed to increasing our social activity by sending out surveys to our members to give them a chance to say what they would love to do and plan our events according to their needs. Furthermore, I would love to continue my work on the Mentorship Programme while enhancing networking events and introducing application/internship workshops. If the pandemic has made it difficult for you to find and apply for jobs/internships, don’t worry I've got you! No matter what the situation will look like next year, I promise you to be adaptive and innovative to deliver exciting social events and ensure a smooth organisation of all activities. I would love for you to vote for me, so we can fulfill our shared passion!
Fanni Pocsveiler
As a member of the MedTech Society, I’ve had the pleasure of taking part in a diverse series of events such as the speaker series and the mentorship program. I’ve further greatly appreciated the Women in Tech events, and I’d love to have an active role in the society to keep encouraging people to engage with the field, improving the society to the best of my abilities. Following my experience as an Events Officer at smaller societies, I understand what the role entails and the work necessary to organize larger events, and I believe I have the teamwork skills necessary to fulfill the role. Furthermore, as a biomedical sciences student with interests in programming and technology, I have the passion necessary to actively engage with the subject and participate in committee life, focusing on events organization. I look forward to the opportunity to support the MedTech committee and society.
Marta Sadlej
Hi everyone!

I am Marta, a Biomedical Sciences student with a special interest in bioinformatics and the applications of new technologies in medical sciences. I will be starting my second year of studies in September.

Apart from attending a large number of science-related webinars, I have already co-organized several events. Only in the last month, I was involved in running a meeting with the Nobel Laureate Robert Lefkowitz, as well as the UCL SciCon's Pizza&PhD event. All those experiences made me aware of the many different ways to organize creative and interesting events.

My interests include many areas of medtech. My work with molecular dynamics and quantum modelling during the ongoing gap year gave me a great insight into the field of bioinformatics. During the last summer, I completed an internship in a stem cells lab, where I was exploring the exciting field or regenerative medicine. I have completed several courses on online platforms, which broadened my view of science.

I am passionate about finding new ways to tackle problems. Our project of updateable immunity passports has won the second place on "COVID Challenge", a hackathon organized in April, beating more than 200 participants.

As and events officer, I would make sure that the MedTech's events are among the most interesting, eye-opening and diverse at UCL, and that we would be hosting some the world's best scientists and innovators.

Vote for me for the next Events Officer!
Anna Lewicka
Hi all! My name's Anna and I'm doing Natural Sciences. I'm passionate about innovative technologies in medicine, especially AI in genomics, and I dream to develop a start-up on personalized medicine. From the experience of being a fresher during the exclusively-online year, I can understand that we're all as hungry as ever for real-life events!

MedTech society definitely made the most of the online times, but we're surely all fed up with Zoom. Nevertheless, we learned some of the online conferencing's advantages too- for example, convenience and accessibility, which can be a big leg up for our busy students with tight schedules. Therefore, I believe there should be a variety of both in-person and online events.

I have relevant experience in organizing events- I was a Finance&Partnership Officer at UCL Leaders 2021 forum organized by Polish Society. I was also one of the organizers of MUN conference, and a series of interviews on mental health open to the public in my home city, Wroclaw.

My priorities:
Entrepreneurial sessions with successful young biotech leaders
Practical sessions on programming, public speaking & other soft skills
Engagement in thematical months
Real-life events recorded and accessible online
Emphasis on the socialization of all society members- returning to unofficial events such as movie nights, pub crawling.
Maja Bronowska
Hi!
I love working with people and meeting new inspiring people that are eager to share their ideas with the audience. I want the events to be more than just talks. I want them to be an interactive and great opportunity to build connections and transform ideas into innovations. Currently, I'm taking part in the mentorship programme and I would love to continue with projects like that and even more.
