Being president of UCL Pakistan Society this year has been a truly enriching experience. I am incredibly grateful for all the opportunities that have been afforded to me from this role and I am so proud of what has been achieved this year. Despite this, the pandemic has meant that there is so much left from what I set out to accomplish last year. This includes:

• Existing large-scale events e.g. qawwali night and boat party
• The creation of a flagship event
• An increase the number of sporting opportunities
• Launching a mental health initiative
• More frequent in person socials
• Expansion and maintenance of intersociety links, including South Asia Cup and Sustainability week
• Increased fundraising and charitable initiatives
• An improved feedback system
• In person networking events

My dedication to PakSoc is unwavering, in my three years at university I have either been attending PakSoc events or working hard so that all members can enjoy them. In my first year on committee, I played an integral role in organising in person events, this experience coupled with the skills I have gained from this year; gives me an excellent foundation to take the society to the next level in the upcoming year.

Salaam! I’m Aaman, a first year Pharmacy student and I am running to be the President of Pakistan Society! Being Pakistani is one of my key values and the society has undoubtedly been one of my biggest influences in settling into life at UCL so far. I want to bring my passion for our culture and identity as the President of our society by:
- Working with the rest of the committee to organise more face to face (Covid permitting!) icebreaker events to allow Freshers to swiftly familiarise themselves within the society and university. This can include the return of boat parties, Qawalli Nights and intra-PakSoc dinner nights.
- Promoting Pakistani identity and history by holding pragmatic discussion panels about the Independence struggle, the Kashmir crisis, our Constitution and the current plight of minorities in Pakistan.
- And most importantly, ensuring that the society runs smoothly by listening to its most important asset- YOU! I will implement an effective feedback system to ensure this.
Of course, owing to the excellent work done by the previous President, these are all evolutionary ideas as the society is in a strong place, nonetheless. However, I want to use the ideas, skills and experience that I have accumulated to my best use to further improve the running of the society and its role within UCL as a wider environment.
Overall, I’m so excited to bring my strengths to what will hopefully be a return to the old normal next year, Inshallah. Thanks for reading!
