Elena Priesen-Reis
Having been the previous newsletter officer, I found that the unique responsibility and independence of the role provided me with the motivation to personally engage more with the vegan online community to find current news, recipes, features etc. I also was extremely delighted and honoured when members of the society would provide me with positive feedback and content that they wanted to see in the newsletter; this displayed active engagement and interest in my work, and I felt that my efforts (if only a little bit) were acting as a source of happiness, support, and advice for the readers. If elected, my priorities going forward would be to more actively search for individuals affiliated with UCL in someway or in the local community, with interesting stories for features, so that I may provide exposure and commend the amazing achievements of those who may have otherwise been unheard, while simultaneously providing a sense of inspiration for readers. I also would like to give more attention to the members of our society that might not necessarily be vegan yet, but are interested in transitioning into a more plant-based lifestyle. I believe it is important to acknowledge these members to create a more inclusive and welcoming environment, and increase the future scalability and sustainability of VegSoc. I would also like to introduce a Q&A section of the newsletter, where every week I (or another member of the committee) answer any questions submitted by society members.
