My name is Matej Poliaček, I am a second year student of Mathematics and Statistics . During my first year of studies, I became a freelance face-to-face interpreter here in Glasgow, to utilise my knowledge of Slovak and Czech languages. During my assignments I have been facilitating communication and representing two different parties of two different language at the same time, giving me a deep insight into connecting diverse groups of people in the professional field. I am also the captain of the Glasgow University Kendo Club for the academic year 2012-2013 maintaining certain level of communication with GUSA in some areas and in effect represensting the whole club.As a representative of School of Mathematics and Statistics I will provide a stable and reliable link between students of the college and any other party involved. I will ensure efficient and quick transfer of information.
My Life: 1st Year studying for a Maths & Politics degree. Aside from uni work, really enjoy Art; Current Affairs; Socialising; Mixing Drinks and admittedly crap maths jokes- my favourite: “Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9!”.
My Experience: I loved maths enough in school to sit optional ‘bonus’ tests for extra kudos and fun! I’ve also proven I can be a great rep because I’ve been 1st Year Rep in the SRC since October. I kept all my original promise: To get out and speak to Freshers and hear their views’, rather than assume I know best.
The School:So far I’ve had a brilliant experience, taking advantage of the L1 drop-in help offered and by having the good fortune of having fantastic lecturers. However, I’m aware that not everyone is as content as this. I will hold surgeries to speak to students (with snacks), and hold polls through the school to learn more about the problems faced.
The SRC: The SRC does fantastic work for students at Glasgow Uni, but I want to work with other reps to get speaking to students more through various means.
