Colin Lee / Lily Pouydebasque
What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?
Our goals are:
1) Increase participation for students in local/campus politics, especially ahead of the 2021 London mayoral & assembly elections.
2) In light of UCL’s low student satisfaction, enhance the community’s overall well-being and health.
3) Introduce opportunities for students to feel more connected to UCL, fellow students, and London. Your uni experience is our priority, especially during the pandemic!
4) Make sure UCL is an inclusive community where all of its branches work and communicate as a whole.

What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?
Inspired by last year’s officers, we plan to sustain many of their ideas. We strongly believe that officers should aim to focus on long term goals and refer to the policies installed by predecessors to make a lasting impact.

Colin is currently serving as the academic representative for his course, BSc Politics and International Relations. He is experienced in representing the interests of student groups and lobbying UCL to bring change. Lily has led many student projects and is prepared to steer various initiatives to deliver our manifesto and enhance students' experience.

Anything else?
This year has not been what anyone anticipated. However, we are confident that better days will return. We would love to accompany you through this next step as your Community Relations Officers. We ask for your vote for real change.
Zinia Deiri
What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?
1. I want to expand community outreach, by increasing opportunities to work with a wider range of local businesses and organisations.

2. I will ensure that there is access to mental health services for all students, by working with the Welfare and Community Officer to guarantee that our community is providing this.

3. I intend to create an online page that showcases local community initiatives like volunteering opportunities, the services available to students, and the promotion of healthy local businesses.

What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?
I am very adaptable and resilient, which are vital skills for our return to campus that will probably raise new challenges, which I intend to tackle. In the past year, I have acted as Campus Ambassador, Accommodation Ambassador, Transition Mentor, and Covid-19 testing assistant. These roles have given me insight into local issues, and I have been able to build strong relations with different community members. I am passionate about maintaining a lively, friendly, and secure environment and have a good understanding of what students expect.

Anything else?
With the likely return to campus in September, many of the students will have made little connections to the UCL community. I desire to construct policies adaptive to this transition, making new and existing students feel welcomed, safe, and included.
