Hamza Iftikhar
Hey everyone! My name is Hamza Iftikhar and I think I deserve to be your Faculty Rep because, for me, a Faculty Rep is a student who not only represents the views and opinions of other students but also actively tries to make their experience at UCL better. If I get elected, my priorities will include,
1) Being a listening ear for all your problems.
2) Trying to a student-led, positive change in the faculty.
3) Raising your concerns and issues, while also consulting with you about some possible solutions.
4) Trying to better myself, and how I represent you guys by taking in feedback about me, from you all as well.
Throughout the last year, I served as a Class Rep, a Student Rep, as well as a Student Ambassador over at King's College London, where we fought and successfully ensure the Safety Net Policy for all students. Through this experience, I was further able to polish my skills and help my fellow students adapt to online learning. I plan to use this experience to fight for you guys as well! and I just want to say here, UCL over King's any day!
A fun fact about me is that I love talking and socializing, so if you guys are ever bored or just want someone to talk to, feel free to come up to me. We are all in this together and will come out of this Pandemic stronger!

Seif Rashad
Hello everyone, I just want to let you know that I am your man. I have been a course rep before at queen Mary university and I brought on real change to my fellow students, and whenever problems arose I was the first one to make sure it was solved.

I am very dedicated and hard working. I can stay up all night making sure what I set out to do is accomplished.

I would appreciate your vote for this faculty rep title.

Make the SEIF vote!
Pilar Ruano
Hi, my name is Piti and I'm studying Management Science. Not only am I committed with my studies and with the community, but I enjoy having responsibilities and I am capable of representing UCL values anywhere. This means that I will work hard, help with everything that I can, give up my free time to contribute to university events and everything demanded.It is my first year in UCL and I want to make every day count. I would like to give the university a part of me so I can get involved and give everyone the opportunity to feel they are in a community despite the COVID-19 situation.
I have experience roles like this in my school before as I have always represented my class in the student council, I´ve been the President of the Debating Society for over five years, a mentor and been both a Junior Prefect and Deputy Head Girl.
This means that I truly enjoy helping other people, making them feel good and trying to be a support for everyone. I have a very positive attitude; I am always smiling, and I believe my personality really matches with this role. I feel passionate and very excited about becoming Faculty Representative, I truly look forward to start making things happen and improve each and every day in UCL.
Ekaterina Fomenkova
During the time of the pandemic, that is important to support each other. The problem that we have faced for the first time- lack of face-to-face communication and that is important to change that. For two years I was a Vice-president of society in my previous place of study and I understand how communication between students is important. That is why it is important to have many interactions for students and especially support.
I can say that will be a very hard year. There are many students as me who started their first year remotely and who didn't come to London and can't feel atmosphere of the city and UCL. That is what I
My main aim is to have lots of activities among students. This year with COVID and restrictions all over the UK this will only be possible to do online, but that doesn't mean that it won't be funny! That is essential to make different activities for students from all over the world. Students should know each other even though they are far from each other. Moreover, there might be even different championships, so then students can know each other better in teams!
That is also important to have more support for students.
I want to improve and try many things this year in order to improve students well-being and improve online communication between all the students of the faculty.
Yolanne Lee
I was privileged enough that one of the hardest decisions for me was deciding what to major in! The main reason I decided on engineering was that it would never limit me; rather, it provides me with the skillset to explore my interests more effectively - and this is what I promise to you: as Faculty Rep, I will protect and pursue opportunity.

- Academics
I suppose this isn’t surprising considering what I’m running for! I promise that any issues about your degree will be at the top of my priority list, no matter how unoriginal this makes me seem. These are the things that affect our day-to-day most, whether you’re just starting out as a first year or whether you’re about to graduate.
- Transparency
As course rep last year, I helped my cohort navigate the chaos of coronavirus. I understand that the faculty does not always hold ready answers, but ensuring constant communication not only makes student voices heard but also outlines what we as a department collectively know and don’t know.
- Community
This becomes more important than ever given that my friends are spread across the globe. Being president of EWB this year compounds the importance of this for me, and I don’t want socials to be another task on your schedule.

If you’ve made it to the end of my manifesto, special thanks to you! Why I study EEE: robot engineers are never lonely - they’re always making new friends. Find me on social media and you can too!
