COUNCILLOR - UNDERGRADUATE A

Symeon ZIEGLER

Hi I'm Symeon and I'm in first year studying Arts majoring in history and politics. I believe that the SRC is here to work for everyone. All students deserve to know exactly what it is doing, how it is enacting its policy, and how it is working for you. Accountability is central, so we need to make the SRC more transparent. I am confident that I can be judged on my actions. We will continue to actively pursue the best possible outcome for all students following the imposition of university trimesters. Finally, I believe that an increase in the frequency of the 893 and 898 buses will benefit students greatly by reducing the inconvenience of long travel times. As an honest, hard-working individual with a focus on fairness and justice, I look forward to representing your interests to the SRC.

Emily POPE

My name is Emily Pope and I am a first year Commerce student running for Councillor A. I am running for SRC because I am passionate about student advocacy and ensuring that everyone’s issues are heard. Over the past few months I have been on the executive of a university club, and I’ve found my involvement and agency in a student organisation extremely rewarding. I believe it is extremely important to improve the influence of student organisations to accurately reflect to management our experience at university. There are a few main issues UNSW management needs to act on, one being the overwhelming negative response to the trimester system. If elected I will motivate a stronger student influence on university decisions so that UNSW maintains its reputation as a top global university, both academically and for student life.

Saskia WIBOWO

I am a first-year student studying a Bachelor of Commerce – running for councillor in the hopes of giving the student body a perspective and voice that is better heard and valued. Throughout this year and even before university, I have been heavily involved in a wide range of extracurricular activities – ranging from volunteering to positions in student societies and community groups –which have allowed me to develop my communication, interpersonal skills and openness to others’ input. As a person, I am always keen to take on new opportunities and commit as best as I can to everything that I decide to undertake. I hope that these aspects of my character – along with the insight and experience I have gained from my active involvement within the campus community – will equip me with what is required to help make the university experience better for all students from all walks of life.

Annie ZHU

Being a university student is difficult, now more than ever. On top of large amounts of content, long commute times and the difficult balance between studying and working, there are also added challenges such as the high cost of textbooks and food, attendance to social events, increased workloads as a result of trimesters and language barriers. Uni can often seem extremely alien and students, ignored. I understand this. This, is why I am running for SRC this year. I want to initiate meaningful change and increase student accessibility. The way I plan to do this is through:

1. Increase subsidies for textbooks, society balls and university competitions

2. Work responsibly with the university to have student voices on trimesters heard. Negotiate to institute changes such as mid-trimester breaks and longer stuvacs

3. Increase support and funding for language support + study groups

4. Increased funding for mental health facilities, more publicity about the services available and more SRC-led programs such as Mindfulness Week and Free Lunch Week

Avreet KAUR

My name is Avreet and I am a 2nd Year Bachelor of International Studies/Media (Communications and Journalism) student. I have been involved in the United Nations Society as Vice President for Education and currently write for Foreign Brief. I am passionate to become a voice for students, in advocating for greater accessibility and freedom, in making clubs and societies more accessible within the trimester system, and in ensuring transparency between students and the University Board.

Caitlin KEOGH

My name is Caitlin Keogh, I’m a student here at UNSW and currently the Education Officer on the SRC. I have used my position on the SRC to initiate the Cancel Trimesters campaign, the largest student campaign at UNSW for over two decades. The campaign against trimesters isn’t over though. Cancel Trimesters will continue into the future, so we can build the pressure necessary to see student demands met, which if elected I commit to continue to fight for. I have been extremely active in the education collective since I began my study at UNSW. In 2017 I joined the anti-Trimester campaign; and earlier in 2018 played a key role in building student staff solidarity in the UNSW staff strike against unfair pay and conditions. I’ll continue to fight the corporatisation of UNSW. More broadly, I’ll fight for free education, for environmental justice and against climate change, and against sexism, homophobia and racism on and off campus.

Alicja DEEGAN

Hi, my name is Alicja and I’m running for SRC councillor. Students are an increasingly diverse group of people facing a broad range of challenges. I believe the SRC should be a space for organising to tackle all of these. I stand firmly against all forms of racism, sexism, homophobia and believe the student union should too in this current climate of increasing far right ideology and aggression around the world. Unions like the UNSW SRC are, first and foremost, bodies for activism around social and political issues. What I can bring to this body is my experience in various campaigns for refugee rights, climate justice, free education amongst other pertinent social justice causes. I’m dedicated to making the UNSW SRC a militant body which will fight for equality and progressive issues in the broader struggle for creating a better world.

Mitch PRICE

Soaliha IQBAL

Lindy UNG

Hi, I’m Lindy, a second year commerce/media student running for the position of Councillor A. As the Events Director for Vision Generation (VGen), the youth movement of World Vision at UNSW, I am passionate about social issues worldwide but also within my immediate environment to make the world a better place. I believe that by engaging the wider student community and collectives at UNSW, I can inspire action to be taken for gender equality, cultural tolerance, environmental change and our education system. As Councillor, I want to be a change leader in sparking a conversation around these topics, and make sure that tangible action is being implemented on behalf of students’ best interests. That means facilitating communication and holding convenors accountable where possible to drive positive outcomes. Be mediating between the SRC and our collectives, I will strive to be an active representative that listens and responds to student voices.

Kyra SHANYI

Hi! I’m Kyra and I’m a second year student studying Law & Science. I’m running for councillor because I am passionate about enhancing inclusivity, diversity, accessibility and the standard of education at our university. Since moving to Sydney I found a new home at UNSW Hall residential college. Through being an active member of the community and forming strong friendships, I was elected as Treasurer for 2019. Throughout the year I have helped bridge the gap between international and domestic students as well as making sure events were accessible for everyone. As a low socio-economic college, most residents have to work 1-2 jobs to keep up with living costs. Trimesters have added such a significant weight on most of my friends, impacting their academic development and mental health. I would love to champion the issues that impact all students and I think UNSW Hall has given me the insight, skills and experience to be a passionate student reprehensive.

Alisha NAZIR

The SRC. Who are we? The SRC is made up of amazing and compassionate UNSW students who value democracy. It is filled with passionate individuals who want to achieve justice for the UNSW community. My name is Alisha and I’m passionate about human rights, inclusivity and the environment. I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Development Studies and a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies. I am driven by the vast variety of personalities I come across in my everyday life. I value the conversations I have with them and enjoy advocating with people who share the same values and visons as me. I hope to make UNSW a place where we can be more politically involved and ensure that our voices are heard. SRC has already shown their political influence this year through the participation in events such as the Cancel Trimesters rally and the upcoming Climate Walk-off.

Hridaya HARIDSAN

I am Hridaya and I am running to be a councillor on the SRC. I come from Singapore, where we are recycle almost everything. Here at UNSW I have taken issue with the lack of recycling the uni does and the will to improve and implement recycling. If elected, I will use my voice to battle for better recycling at UNSW. Please vote for me and vote for the planet!

Chloe COLLINS

Hello! I am a second-year Commerce/Arts student that is passionate about social change, student activism and student power. I am running as a councillor under the Rise ticket because I believe the SRC needs a left-wing intervention. I stand with Rise because Rise stands for anti-racism, anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism and anti-homophobia student politics. Voting for Rise means helping us to support those who are marginalised, oppressed and forgotten in the community.

COUNCILLOR - UNDERGRADUATE B

Leo COLEMAN

My name is Leo Coleman, and I am a fourth year student studying medicine at UNSW. Since Open Day, I have loved UNSW and all the students who are lucky enough to study at such an amazing institution. I have been heavily involved on campus, having been a member of several Subcommittees of UNSW Medical Society in 2017, as well as being the Junior Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) Representative in 2018. This year I was lucky enough to serve on the executive of the Medical society as the AMSA representative for 2019. I also spent two years living on campus at Goldstein College, and was appointed as Ball Treasurer and Co-Convenor in 2017. I have even spent several hours dressed up as Clancy the Lion at graduation ceremonies! As a student councillor I want to give back to the university which has given me so much.

James MORCHED

Hi, my name is James and I'll be running for a councillor position on the SRC. I believe that the SRC should be an active representative of the demands of the student body. This means taking up fights around issues on campus such as the fight against Trimesters, or off campus such as the fight against climate change and racism! I am an activist in many campaigns on and off campus, as well as an organiser of the Cancel Trimesters campaign which pulled together more than 1000 students and staff to rally against the broken system of Trimesters in the largest rally at UNSW in more than 20 years! As such, I believe that I can offer a lot of experience to the SRC in keeping up the fight against Trimesters, among other things.

Alessandro CIUFFETELLI

Hello, my name is Alessandro! I have been studying Civil Engineering and Commerce at UNSW for nearly 2 years now. As a Canberra boy, UNSW and Sydney was a scary change – everything was bigger, better and faster. Although I came alone, I found an incredible community in the Colleges - Goldstein has been my home, my family and support network. My involvement in the Inter-Residential Council has taught me that creating large-scale communities is tremendously important. It provides opportunities to meet like-minded and talented people, creates culture shifts and develops a connection with something bigger - something big enough to evoke change. These communities exist everywhere at UNSW from colleges to societies to faculty groups. I have found my family here; my vision is for every student to find theirs. As an SRC councillor, I would strive to help these communities grow and thrive, because as many, we are one – the voice of UNSW.  

Amit Pal BHARATH

My name is Amit Pal, and I am running for Councillor B. I believe that the SRC should remain a by-student for-student organisation. The SRC has a responsibility to provide the best services to the students it is supposed to be working for. As a council member, I will make sure the SRC is working to make UNSW a fossil free/renewable energy university, fight on-campus discrimination, and fight for affordable on-campus housing.

Tanmay MANCHANDA

Hey guys, I am Tanmay Manchanda, studying Bachelors of Computer Engineering degree. Ever since I got admitted to UNSW, I decided to broaden my and get involved with several cultural clubs and societies at various capacities and contribute diligently as an on-campus resident. I firmly believe that students should feel welcome, empowered and included in the processes that influence the way they experience this wholesome journey. As the councillor, I aspire to improve the chain of communication by increasing transparency and highlighting the various strengths that we as a community have to do what we do best - celebrate the success of our community. Hence, I strive to take initiative and ensure everything under me is run smoothly, at the same time be respectful to different perspectives and opinions. Such a role will harness my creative yet simplistic self to reach full potential, and along the way - I hope to develop friendships that last a lifetime!

Anneka PARKER

My name’s Anneka Parker, and I’m in my fourth year of medicine at UNSW. I’ve loved my time studying at UNSW and making the most of all the opportunities offered here. I’ve been a part of UNSW Medical Society Council as a sponsorship officer, as well as part of the membership’s subcommittee. I have run multiple tutorials on ethics on campus and am currently involved with making costumes for the UNSW MedShow, giving me experience as a student and a tutor, as well as plenty of extra-curricular involvement. I’m also currently working a report on sexual health support for international students at UNSW, which is something I’m really passionate about. I’m very keen to see some changes on campus, and particularly want to help work towards the breaking down of stigmas around sexual and mental health.

Macy REEN

Hey, I’m Macy Reen; I’m a second year science student at UNSW. I’m running to be a councillor on the Students’ Representative Council and a National Union of Students delegate. I have been a councillor on the SRC this year and used the position to stand against injustices. I have led the Cancel Trimesters campaign that has mobilised over 1000 students to stand up for our rights that are being stripped from us by the university management. I have been involved in campaigns around the environment, for free education and student rights, refugee rights, and Palestine solidarity. The SRC should be a body of progressive activists who are confident to take up any injustice they see, whether these struggles are here or off campus. I hope to be a part of that fight.

Meg COOKE

My name is Meg Cooke, I’m running for an NUS delegate. I believe that the National Union of Students should be a body that fights for student’s rights as well as on all progressive fronts. NUS should be an activist body that runs national campaigns deamnding free education, to climate justice to LGBTI rights. I stand for free, quality education, an end to refugee detention, action on climate change and against sexism and racism. This year I have been involved in both the Cancel Trimesters campaign as well as building the climate strikes.

Hongbo CHENG

Andy HU

Hi I’m Andy Hu and I’m running for the NUS Councillor position.Student unions should be activist organisations fighting for student rights and leading social and political movements. However, the current state of our SRC and NUS does nothing substantial to address issues of any sort. I believe in free education, climate justice, student and workers’ rights, refugee rights, and am against corporate greed, nationalism, fascism and bigotry. As we all have experienced, the UNSW management’s cash grab scheme in implementing trimesters have had a detrimental effect on student and staff lives. I believe that the Student Union should be leading the fight against management’s attacks against students and even issues beyond the university such as climate justice and refugee rights.

Amy LI

My name is Amy Li, and I am a Psychology and Statistics student at UNSW. I am running for councillor with Rise because I believe that students deserve an SRC that serves with commitment, integrity, and resolve. My experiences serving in a variety of societies, volunteering programs, and student campaigns have given me insight into the everyday concerns of students at this university, and taught me about the vital role that student representation plays in making sure these concerns are addressed. Serving on the SRC this year has further shown me the importance of a hardworking representative body in ensuring a fair and accountable UNSW – the key reason why I am running with the Rise team. As a councillor, and as an NUS delegate, I will continue to fight for student consultation in university decision-making, and for student wellbeing to be a top priority during this period of change at UNSW. Vote [1] Rise.

Karan MEHROKE

Change is what UNSW needs and I know I am the one who can deliver this change to our campus. Climate change is serious, and as a student of Engineering at UNSW I will take a stand. There have been many changes at UNSW this year, and the student’s voice needs to be heard. I believe there are changes that would benefit all students. If elected I will introduce a student led research project dedicated to the development of clean energy. Join me to bring change about UNSW in an everchanging world at an everchanging campus.

Bella NOTARPIETRO

My name is Bella and I’m a second year chemical engineering student. I’m running for councillor on the SRC because, whilst I love UNSW, I also think that we, as a university and community, can do better. I think it is highly problematic that students’ voices are rarely listened to, be it in regards to trimesters, fossil fuel divestment or sexual harassment on campus . I have experience in a number of university clubs and societies, including WIESoc, and have been an active member of campus activist groups like Fossil Free. Hence, I have a thorough understanding of multiple aspects of university life and have the skills to effect real change. My goal is to empower all students to advocate for the things that are important to them and that will benefit the broader community, be it the climate, trimesters or gender equality.

Lily DUN

Hi I’m Lily; I’m a second year science student majoring in Biology and Mathematics. I’m running for councillor because I believe it’s time for UNSW to open our eyes to the peril that is climate change. I’ve been actively involved in Fossil Free UNSW, and am incredibly passionate about the growing environmental and social issues our generation faces. My time participating at UNSW has allowed me to diversify my world view greatly, and become passionate about helping other. We have seen today that it is through students and young people that real change can happen and I want to be at the forefront of this, which is why I’m running for councillor. I hope to be involved in ongoing change at UNSW through the council, and assisting other groups on campus to achieve our goals.

Shanaya ABEYWICKRAMA

Hey, Shanaya here! I am running for the position of councillor. The reason why I am running is that this year I found my knew home here at UNSW. It is a lovely place, but a few things needs to change in order to make it better. I will use my position as a member of the council to make UNSW truly the global university it aims to be, by making sure it is following the trend of other unis and going fossil free. please use your vote and voice!

NUS DELEGATES

Joshua CRAWFORD

Hey! My name is Joshua Crawford and I am a fourth-year Bachelor of Media in Pr & Advertising Student running for NUS Delegate. Last year I attended the National Union of Students Conference as an observer, and was blown away by the amount of passion and knowledge my fellow attendees had during conference proceedings. If elected as a delegate, I would push for greater access to workers rights (I am extremely passionate about fighting worker exploitation, in addition to fighting cuts to education and climate change. 

Tina FLASKAS

Hey, I'm Tina! It is a true honour to be running for NUS Delegate 2020! Seeing how students have come together to support and represent one another despite any differences in a fair and just manner is remarkable to see and I would love the oppurtuntiy to be a part of that! This is at the core of who I am and what I stand for. Following this, I am whole heartedly passionate about advocating for youth and improving the quality of education along with the quality of resources available to them. With this I have and continue to have involvement with YMCA and advocating for youth and youth rights. I pride myself on actively listening and making change for who want and need their voice to be heard. And with your vote, we can do just that! I can assure you that with your vote, you will be heard and together we will tackle budget cuts and the increase of education corporatisation.

Shovan BHATTARAI

I'm Shovan Bhattarai and I'm running for Education Officer. I stand for free education and against the corporatisation of university, for action on climate change, and for rebuilding an activist NUS that fights around progressive issues in society. I've used my position as NUS Campus Rep this year to play a leading role in the Cancel Trimesters campaign; organising the biggest rally at this campus in over two decades. I've fought for years as an activist against racism and sexism, for refugee and LGBTI rights, and have played a leading role in the campaign against UNSW's ties to military industries. I've also played a key role in organising activism around addressing the most important issue of our time - climate change. I've playing a leading role in organising UNSW contingent to the global Climate Strikes and outside of campus been involved in organising around the Extinction Rebellion climate movement.

Zane COMARMOND

My name is Zane and I am a 3rd year Media Public Relations and Advertising and 2nd year Law student. I’m excited to run for the NUS Delegate, as my experiences at UNSW have made me notice two key factors about university life; the first is that despite being a notably social campus, students tend to shy away from opening up about their mental health and well-being, which I attribute to a lack of trust in the support mechanisms offered on campus. The second factor is that students tend to dismiss the importance of the SRC in leading social change. I believe that decisions impacting students’ tertiary education are happening without requisite student awareness and consent on a national level, and that attention should be directed towards addressing national mental health services’ inadequacies to champion a unification between students across faculties and improving accessibility to mental health services on campus.

Genevieve MCFADDEN

John ECONOMIDES

I am John Economides and this year I am running for NUS delegate in this election. I am a first year actuarial studies student. I am a firm believer in social equity for all students and because of such things am heavily against cuts to education. I believe all students are entitled to the highest level of education the country can provide and in order to achieve that funding cuts to universities are a very damaging move. I also believe students themselves deserve more financial support as financial independence has become more and more difficult overtime, which is an issue an older parliament struggles to understand, take for example the inflated cost of housing, especially in the suburbs surrounding university. Issues such as this make university restrictive, whereas I believe it should be open to all. I hope a vote for me leads to a more equitable student life.

Joseph JEONG

My name is Joseph Jeong and I’m running for NUS Delegate. As part of the National Union of Students, I want to focus its attention on the issues that affect all university students: advocating against the recent cuts to higher education and advocating for cheaper tuition fees for all degrees. I also view the high cost of living for students and student poverty as high-priority welfare issues that must be addressed for all students. As an Engineering-Commerce student, I understand the need for any solution to be both workable and sustainable into the future, and will advocate as such within the NUS. I urge you to vote for me and help make UNSW, along with every university campus in Australia a better place.

Macy REEN

Hey, I’m Macy Reen; I’m a second year science student at UNSW. I’m running to be a councillor on the Students’ Representative Council and a National Union of Students delegate.

NUS should be an activist body that runs national campaigns deamnding free education, to climate justice to LGBTI rights. I stand for free, quality education, an end to refugee detention, action on climate change and against sexism and racism. This year I have been involved in both the Cancel Trimesters campaign as well as building the climate strikes.

Caitlin KEOGH

My name is Caitlin Keogh, I’m a student here at UNSW and currently the Education Officer on the SRC. I have used my position on the SRC to initiate the Cancel Trimesters campaign, the largest student campaign at UNSW for over two decades. The campaign against trimesters isn’t over though. Cancel Trimesters will continue into the future, so we can build the pressure necessary to see student demands met, which if elected I commit to continue to fight for. I have been extremely active in the education collective since I began my study at UNSW. In 2017 I joined the anti-Trimester campaign; and earlier in 2018 played a key role in building student staff solidarity in the UNSW staff strike against unfair pay and conditions. I’ll continue to fight the corporatisation of UNSW. More broadly, I’ll fight for free education, for environmental justice and against climate change, and against sexism, homophobia and racism on and off campus.

Soaliha IQBAL

Gabriel HANRAHAN-LAWRENCE

My name is Gabriel Hanrahan-Lawrence, a Science/Arts student at Kensington campus, and I’m running for NUS delegate with Rise. An SRC should be a stalwart supporter and advocate for the rights of students and other oppressed groups. UNSW has recently seen the biggest on campus rally in more than two decades, and I want to continue that spirit in 2020. I’ve been an activist at UNSW since I started university. I have been involved in numerous campaigns for student rights, such as fighting against fee increases, to fighting for free education, and now as an activist against the ridiculous trimesters system. I have also been involved in campaigns for marriage equality, for the rights of LGBT school students, and against racism and fascism. I think activism is a vital part of any university's SRC, and I will continue to fight progressive campaigns long after the election period.
