Thea Telfer
I am Thea Telfer and this is my first year at UCL. The current situation has, so far, shaped my experience of uni life and living in halls. I have come here with certain ideas and expectations, being a representative of James Lighthill House I hope to make the best of a bad situation. Student accommodation can seem even more scary and daunting than ever now. With this position I would like to introduce different activities and get togethers in the safety of our accommodation which will respect the restrictions and guidelines. I understand we all have different priorities and views on life. However we can all agree that we want to have fun and socialise. I trust we all are aware of our own and other people’s wellbeing and make our decisions accordingly so. I would like to encourage people to put forth ideas and the possibility to make them anonymous. Posters or suggestion boxes could be a way to preserve that anonymity. We have the chance to create the year that we want, yes the rules are restricting but making the most of what we have is all we can do. Let's have a great year!
Ina Natseva
“I came, I saw, I… want to change” My name is Ina, I’m a first year student and I want to be your Hall Rep! I spent a few weeks at JLH and realized: to make this building feel like a home, some things need to change (I’m sure you noticed issues too). I’m motivated and realistic (which is pretty important) so let me tell you WHY you should vote for me!

Vote INA if you want :

1) The recycling bins to actually be recycled (the two bins from kitchens currently go the same place:/)
2) A change in the privacy invading visits from the guards (no way to feel at home when guards enter randomly!!)
3) Shopping carts available to use for groceries
4) Vending machines with necessities (we need 24/7 access to soap, tampons and detergent, not Doritos)
5) Working vacuums, kettles, computers etc. (we pay for those things but a lot don’t work + some rooms miss bins/adaptors)

I have experience with management and leadership; I was in school committees, president of a club, class rep, and have organized multiple events. Trust me and you won’t be disappointed!

Vote for me now, to see change soon!
Jackie Appiah-Kubi
Hello, my name is Jackie Appiah. I am running for hall rep because I would like to be a voice of change for James Lighthill House.
I was previously an Islington youth councillor. I was responsible for representing the Islington borough and I believe the skills I learn whilst on this role would make me an excellent candidate for this role.
If elected as hall representative I would like to:
- make sure maintenance are quick to respond to students
- to encourage socialising within different formats
- Access to the common room
- improve the speed of the quality of the WiFi so it does not affect students ability to participate in seminars

I believe I am the right fit to be hall rep because I have great ideas on how I can improve your experience in accommodation and my past experience as a youth councillor
Marie Houot
I believe the role of hall rep is more important this year than any other year. We are very limited in our opportunities to meet each other due to restrictions, which is why I believe it is important to create a sense of belonging and community in our hall. I am very dedicated to making this hall feel like home for all of us.
I have a lot of experience with these sort of positions, at school I was class representative several years in a row, I was also a part of my students’ committee, ecology group and organized several large conferences for groups of students of over 300. These opportunities have helped me develop strong communication and organizational skills which I think would make me very suitable for this position.
Although I would be representing this hall, I find it very important that everyone’s voice was heard, which is why I really want to encourage all of you to contact me for suggestions and ideas. I will do my best to consider all of them and turn your vision into my mission!

I hope that you will consider me for this position!
