Zi Lim
I would like to be the UCL SfGH General Secretary position because I truly gained so much from the society as a member in the last year. I joined the Access to Healthcare subcommittee, attended various events, and became a mentee under the Mentorship Program – all of which have helped me solidify my interest in global health and learn more about the field. I am confident that my strong interest in global health will guide my contribution to the society, which will also be supplemented by the skills and experience I gained from previous positions.

As a committee member of the UCL Connect.ed Society, I helped the society grow from less then 60 members last year to almost 290 members at the moment. Being in a small committee, I stepped in to take charge of the weekly newsletter and meeting minutes. From my experience, having a smooth-running operation is one of the most important requirements for working effectively. I am certain that I will be able to provide that for the UCL SfGH committee and I hope to do so with the following priorities:

* Ensuring that each committee meeting is accompanied by an agenda that is sent out to all committee members prior to the meeting as well as meeting minutes with clear delegated action points
* Keeping a consistent schedule with the weekly newsletters so that all society events, opportunities, and updates will be communicated to the members
* Creating a system of documents/folders/accounts to increase efficiency for the committee

My passion for Global Health lies in the access to healthcare for women and children globally. Yet, I appreciate how the society covers a breadth of Global Health issues through the published opportunities and events. I would like to contribute to this ethos and further extend my own knowledge by undertaking the role of general secretary. The position has a unique central role through which I can facilitate communication between committee members to unite the streams of education, advocacy and action. I also hope to collaborate with the campaign leads to bring a range of international themes to the weekly newsletter.

Thus far, my involvement with SfGH has been through the National Committee, where I serve on the operations team for the new ‘Schools Co-ordination Program.’ The pilot phase of this volunteering scheme is being formulated for the upcoming academic year, and I would like to liaise with the President to bring this to UCL. Thereby, students can receive the training and have the opportunity to teach Global Health lessons in secondary schools. Moreover, after working on a larger scale, I would like to focus on a local level to further engage with likeminded individuals to tackle global health inequality.

Working with the UAEM team at SfGH UCL has been a great way to reconnect with the community despite drastic lifestyle changes due to the pandemic. Having dealt with local community health-related projects both in my home country and in the UK, I very much respect the range of topics that SfGH brings to light. I admire the society's determination to explore and raise awareness of the entire spectrum of global health, and I truly believe they do an exceptional job in leveraging the diversity of this society to reach that common goal. But perhaps the most enlightening part of my experiences so far is meeting the people I've worked with here. Their enthusiasm for creating change and spreading the truth is authentic and inspiring.

If there's one thing my previous managerial roles have taught me is that genuine passion and commitment is powerful and contagious. I hope that by applying for this position I will be able to support all the students out there who are gunning for their chance to speak out or act on what they believe needs to be done, whether that's about something in healthcare, politics, sustainability, and so on. Campaigns that are being done at SfGH are exactly what the world needs right now during these pressing times, and no one should be discouraged from doing so. I am invested in ensuring that campaigners receive the support they require to make their voices heard, and I can’t wait to see what we have in store for the next academic year!
