Anushka Ray
As a participant in Shadowing Women in Tech and the Share the Vision conference, I firsthand felt the significance this role presents for other UCL students, and hope to be more involved in future plans. As secretary of a student-led service group and editor of the in-school literature magazine, I developed crucial skills in the organization and structure of events. My internship at a Singaporean media company over the summer allowed me to hone these skills further, as I played a pivotal role in webinar planning- specifically in communicating with the 21 speakers for the event ranging from Managing Directors to High Commissioners. My comfort in event planning and larger projects, as well as in communications, would help me greatly in this role. Thus far, in my first year at UCL, I have served as a student consultant on a consulting project with start-ups in London, developing B2B and marketing strategies. This exposure has further augmented my ability to develop creative tactics to tap into new audiences, but also grow my confidence in navigating professional relationships. Having played volleyball most of my life, I recognise the importance of teams as a student for general friendships as well, and would work to make the environment as inclusive as possible. If elected, I would emphasise the benefits of global connections such as Ms Li Qi from Temasek. I also believe strengthening relationships with London start-ups would be hugely advantageous for future opportunities.

Running for the position of Head of Relations and Outreach requires effective communication and organisation. My previous experience, including fundraising over £200 in a team of 10 and 7 months as a student representative has allowed me to thrive in an environment with various responsibilities, sparking my creativity, leadership and management abilities. This will assist me in my aim to expand the relationships at WinF, as well as maintaining our current thriving relations with the UCL Volunteering service, firms and schools. I hope to develop new collaborations with the wider community and societies around the UK through proactively networking to ensure our programmes reach a greater audience in the hope it will inspire and educate them as it did with me. Volunteering on the On&Up programme and participating in the Shadowing Women in Tech programme, with WinF myself, has deepened my insight into everything from entrepreneurial finance to cloud computing and enhanced my collaborative and impact-driven nature. Hence, given the opportunity to oversee these programmes and new initiatives, in the future, I’m keen to increase the outreach and reputation related to provide increased social and volunteering opportunities. I’d like to reinvest the skills, knowledge and experience I’ve gained to help and encourage those around me. I hope to bring about a meaningful change with new initiatives. Thank you for reading and feel free to get in contact for further development of my ideas.

As a First-Year Representative and having worked with the R&O team, I am excited to be responsible for the development and growth of all the projects that WinF is involved with. As Head of R&O these would be my plans for the next year:

I want to focus on the growth of On & Up. Firstly, I hope to be able to instate the program back into in-person activities, but in the case that it wasn’t possible, I will apply the lessons learned by the prior committee to successfully adapt the sessions to an online format. Working closely with the future marketing team to promote the programme in all our platforms, I hope to recruit to a larger number of volunteers, which will enable us to run the programme in a larger number of schools. I would also like to offer students interested, the opportunity to be mentored personally by one of the volunteers about career options, applying to university…

For SWIT, I am excited to work with UCL Entrepreneurs and FinTech Society to offer women the opportunity to gain an insight into tech and connect with companies in the field; starting as early as possible to expand the reach of the programme.

For CTRL Your Tomorrow, working with FinTech, I aim to increase the number of students involved, to make it into a larger scale event which will have a bigger social impact.
