Lena Sikorska
Hi! I hope you are doing well!

My name is Lena, and I am a first-year Arts and Sciences student. This year I run for the position of SfGH Welfare & Social Officer.

After joining SfGH last summer, I have met like-minded people, developed my interest in global health, and become eager for more! I contributed to the COVID-19 Response Project and have joined the Gender Subcommittee. Currently, I am preparing for our Reproductive Health Panel, which I will have the pleasure of moderating.

Passionate about equality, I co-organized the Gender Equality Panel at the UCL Leaders Conference and became a student consultant for 180 Degrees Consulting. In the past, I volunteered in Romania, where I supported the education and well-being of young girls and orphans. I improved my collaboration, time-management and communication skills while contributing to projects with social impact.

My goals if elected:
- Ensure inclusivity and create representation by inviting speakers and engaging students from diverse backgrounds,
- Continue the successful mentorship scheme (which I was able to experience as a mentee!),
- Organize panels with successful UCL alumni involved in global health to strengthen the sense of mentorship,
- Create regular weekly well-being events (mindfulness sessions, speed meetings and coffee chats).

Thank you so much for reading my manifesto! If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email at [email protected]

Hey everyone! My name is Cat, and I am a second-year BSc Biomedical Sciences student from Vancouver, Canada.

Having to suddenly shift away from the ordinary face-to-face teaching to an almost entirely virtual learning environment takes a toll on every student. As the Welfare & Social Officer, I hope to be able to mediate this transition process and ensure that everyone's voices within SfGH are heard. These are trying times, and I hope to support our society members through the uncertainties that may come forth in the upcoming year. Working as the Lead Academic Representative within my degree programme this year has made me very comfortable in connecting with all sorts of personalities as well as taught me the importance of taking care of one's mental health and wellbeing. As well, I am more than excited to continue to build on our fantastic mentorship scheme and hope to continue to bring forth more opportunities and valuable experiences to our passionate members.

This year, I had the wonderful opportunity to Co-Lead the Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) campaign. Tackling vital issues such as vaccine distribution and challenging UCL to better combat the medicines crises has further fuelled my passion for global and public health. It is now more critical than ever that we are actively discussing these topics, and I look forward to working with everyone to dive deeper into their passion for the vast field of advocating for global health. Thank you :)
