Ariel XuI’m Yingjia (Ariel) Xu, a postgraduate of Educational Studies, also the last PG convenor of Social Sciences. Now, I’m standing for this position again in this spring election.

As what I committed, I endeavored to liaise PGs of Social Sciences with SRC and the college. The issues I raised in the last term including the ebooks and money being taken from students, rearranging classes clashed with Chinese New Year, etc. However, through reviewing previous work, for example the low participation rates on fresher’s week, which means the initiatives of PGs participating school events still need a further encouragement.

If I elected, continuously I’ll focus on standing at students’ stance and being students’ voice. Besides, since now I’m getting more familiar and better with the context of University Committees, I commit that I’ll work more actively and effectively as a postgraduate convenor, both with official staffs across COSS and at a national level through attending councils and University Senate meetings. Last but not least, although I tried several approaches towards collaborating with students via emailing with sosci class representatives and posting on the Student Voice, I’ll do a find out some other ways to let PGs get more involved in University.
