Oliver Pike (He/Him)

I am a proud Wiradjuri Ngemba man from country NSW and member of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have served as the Chair of Arc since June 2022 and appreciate your vote of confidence in electing me yet again. In this role I will continue the strong work Arc is doing to develop the best student experience.

Working as an effective board to ensure Arc is successfully delivering its services for the student community. Working closely with Arc and UNSW senior management to continue the strong relationship.

My vision is to continue the great work Arc already does. Actively listening to the student body and acknowledging change when it is needed. Always striving for our best, putting student needs and voices first. As a proud Wiradjuri and Ngemba man, I understand the importance and necessity of being heard. So please, vote [1] for Oliver Pike.

Ella Davidson (She/Her)

Hi! I’m Ella, a fourth year B Law/B PPE student.

Why am I running for Arc Board? Four reasons: 1) To improve Arc Board Representation by expanding affirmative action from women to gender diverse, international and rural/remote students. 2) To increase support for club and society executives by advocating for Arc Clubs funding to be tied to wellbeing initiatives. 3) To improve sustainability @ Arc by championing waste reduction, sustainable energy and resourcing. 4) To speak up against the commercialisation of Arc spaces and events (both in-person and online).

Why me? I put students first, having successfully lobbied faculty on course cuts and official uni communications. I’ve worked with Arc, as a JP and to secure (re-)affiliation and funding for the faculty society of which I am co-founder and Co-President. I have boardroom experience, as charity director and in assisting the running of an ASX200 board.

Oscar Iredale (He/Him)

I’m a third year Arts/Law student running for Arc Board in 2023. I have put my hand up because I am passionate about improving our experiences at university and making student life the best it possibly can be, and I believe Arc is the best vehicle to achieve this. I have experience in several executive roles in student clubs on campus, including the Law Society, and have served on Arc Board for one year. As a board member, it will be a priority of mine to ensure that students can get the most out of Arc through improving clubs, events, and opportunities. This is more important than ever after a number of disrupted years due to Covid. I promise to be an approachable board member and always ready and willing to listen and act on your concerns so that we can make the change that you want to see.

Mariam Reza (She/Her)

My name is Mariam and I am a third year engineering student. I am applying to a position in the Arc Board as I think I will make a good candidate for the role. Since I come from an ethnically diverse background, I can bring in unique ideas to the team. I love what Arc does for the UNSW students and as a student myself, I would like to represent my peers.
