Bringing People Together

Hey everyone!

My name's Veva and I am the current President of the Arts Volleyball Club here at UAL and have been in that role for 2 years now. Throughout my time at UAL, I have been a part of sports clubs and societies whether I was in the committee or not. For me, there is nothing more important to the student experience than being part of a society or sport club, as they allow you to meet new people who share the same interests as you.

I am running for Student Communities Officer as I would like to improve your experience at UAL by improving and highlighting sports clubs and societies. As the President of a sports club, I know what it takes to make a club successful, and I want to use that experience and apply it to all others. As a Communities Officer, I will aim to give students a better experience by working with UAL to create dedicated spaces for societies and a dedicated space for sports clubs to practice, play and grow. I will aim as well to increase visibility and awareness of our amazing communities formed by these groups by creating events and fundraisers that will allow the clubs and societies to grow and expand, as they may wish.

If you elect me for Student Communities Officer, I will aim to improve the student experience and give students the same experiences and sense of community I have had within the volleyball team for the past 3 years. It is also my goal to make sure every single student is included in whatever sport or society they may wish to join by making sure that every committee within UAL is trained in inclusion and disability.

Vote for Veva, vote to bring people together!
