Trevor Tan
I love Pokemon. UCL Pokemon Society has been my main form of interaction with other students from UCL throughout the lockdown period and has given me a great amount of joy. I'd like to bring the joy of this new society to more members of UCL. I believe I can do so with the role of treasurer. I am a responsible and meticulous person, and will bring my eye for detail to the table. I hope to assist in bringing a larger variety of Pokemon events to a larger audience when in person events are finally available

Hi! My name is Umeesh, and if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love Pokémon! I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Pokésoc this year, and I am grateful for all the friends and memories I have made as a result. Moving into my third year, I now want to play an active role in creating a fun experience for Pokésoc members, which is why I am applying for Treasurer.

The Treasurer plays a central role in ensuring that club activities run smoothly by carefully managing the finances. I firmly believe that I possess the skills needed to carry out this role to a very high standard. I am detail-oriented, methodical, and financial-savvy (how else could I afford Pokémon games while being a student in London?). Having participated in my school’s Young Enterprise programme, I have experience working with budgets, raising money, and dealing with administrative work. I also love spreadsheets and like to think I am quite good at making them.

As the Treasurer, I will aim to work closely with the new committee to offer as many exciting events as possible, including collaborative events with I-UPS. If all goes well next year and in-person events are allowed, I will do my best to ensure there is always room in the budget for lots of snacks at every event. However, my most important goal will be to ensure that Pokémon fans of all kinds can enjoy being a part of this society as much as I do! Take care, stay safe, and smell ya later!
