Hi! I’m Parth. I was Social Statistics & Demography President this year and the year before that I was Faculty Officer (and won Academic Rep of the Year).
I’m really active within the department – connections with different staff which is key in ensuring your views go to the right person(s). I am a Lead Ambassador in the department and have a lot of passion. I understand key issues students may face so I can give strong support.
Feedback is central to me so regular drop-ins is what I’m aiming for this year. Our department is a community so I want to foster this with Course Reps and students. I have been successful in that this year and I would love to continue!
As Faculty Officer and Department President, I’ve made many connections in SUSU and university. This is important in knowing who to go to and that your issues are actually resolved not just heard. I will be able to effectively represent students due to my knowledge. I also have experience lobbying the faculty, school and SUSU which is important for making actual change.
Going into my postgraduate degree next year I will be more equipped to help postgraduate students AND undergraduate students as I will have experiences from both. I believe that my 3-year experience as a rep will make me the best candidate.
I want to use my experience for the best virtual and in-person representation this year as during COVID-19 being strong, effective & experienced is essential.
