Thao Ha

IMG_7364Hi, I’m Thao, an Economics student, who is aspiring to become your International Students Officer for 2016/2017.

Having a multicultural background (I’m Vietnamese Czech) and also being a German Class Representative, I believe that I have an insight of both International and EU community and I’m able to recognize their needs, therefore, could objectively improve the International Student experience through the SRC.

I am also actively engaging in different societies including being the Secretary of the Vietnamese Society, where I’m in charge of managing and working with sensitive information as well as co-organizing networking events.

My aims and objectives:
• Work with GUISOC and hand-in-hand encourage internationality.
• Provide extra support at the beginning and the end of the year to deal with issues such as visas, fees, and accommodation.
• Ensure that there is an effective communication between students and staff-emails only when needed to emphasize the importance (e.g. no Tier 4 emails to EU and home students).
• Initiate the start of a voluntary support programme mainly for international freshers to help them familiarize themselves with the new environment even before they arrive.

I am approachable and willing to help to improve our UofG experience as much as possible.

Thank you!
