Carlos Eduardo Rangel Outeda
What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?

I hope to foster a sense of community (students and staff) within and between Langton close and Frances Gardner. A chief way to do so will be my promoting the flourish activities, and planning activities/parties or other activities, especially since we are 20 minutes away from UCL.I hope to improve flat conditions by either encouraging or streamlining the reporting process by students, so the flats are in better condition, and students feel heard. Finally, I want students to be held accountable for keeping communal areas (and bins =P) tidy, and remain respectful towards the staff.

What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?

I've been involved in a variety of clubs in high school, often in a managerial/planning role, where I reported to and interacted with teachers and staff. I was student rep in 10th grade, I was the co-leader of Model United Nations, and I was part of a student committee that presented recommendations to the Administrative staff for the remodelling of a section of my school.

I'm communicative, passionate, friendly and believe that the best way to lead is by example. I am used to being a bridge between staff and students from many positions in high school where I acted as a voice for students.

Please summarise why students should vote for you.

I would actually engage with the role, have a box for suggestions, and endeavour to include everyone in the process. It's meaningless if I'm a rep without any voices to represent, so I'd genuinely be interested in what people think, and how I could try to make these ideas a reality. If you put in the effort, you can be certain that I will too.


I have experience with organization, coordination, leadership and communication. I want everyone to feel valued and have fun. I want to create a sense of community. I want things to be working properly and tidy.


Elfin Durmus
What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?

I would love to become a familiar face for everyone in my hall. I want to be representative who is open to communication with other residents and help people struggling to settle in. I would collate their complaints and suggestions and help resolve their problems via the meetings with staff members or the Union. I believe it is important to keep things dynamic with interesting activities so I would spend time with my team members to come up with fun activities and create change in the Hall. 

What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?

As an international student, settling in to Frances Gardner is a huge change in my life. I am more understanding of people who feel homesick. In my high school, I was the President of Tango Club and I was the head of a project with my friends helping underprivileged student's education. I have the experience of organizing events to engage people and improving or changing an already existent organization to be more effective. Being a hall representative has similar duties that I believe I will enjoy and be successful at. I will be an accessible, creative, and problem-solver representative. 

Please summarise why students should vote for you.

I grew up with strong neighborhood relations so I value developing our relationships in Halls. I want to make Common room an enjoyable gathering place with a new table-tennis table. Monthly fussball and table-tenis tournaments could be arranged to create a fun and competitive atmosphere. I am planing to arrange Pajamas movie night, camping nights, and meetings for people who are struggling to settle in. My plan for facilitating opinion-sharing is placing a pin board near reception so that people can write their opinions. While many events will be organized, I would be open to event suggestions
