Jenewari Emmanuela Ibilate Williamson by name and I am studying MSc Data Science. I have great passion in data and correlation analysis, and machine learning algorithm to gain insight in data. I also have skills in strategic management by using business theories to evaluate organization’s goals.
Besides my academic prowess, I am a good listener, an achiever and love to administer care to everyone that I meet. I am very approachable, respectful, honest, confident, charismatic, friendly and determined to make sacrifices for students to have fun, be safe and enjoy their experience at the university. Therefore, I am the best candidate for the position “Vice President Welfare”.
I pledge my commitment to provide support to the needs of students and the university at large. These and more is what I propose if elected as Vice President Welfare:
Catering & Printing
Students deserve the right to fair price of food items. To this end, I will work with the Catering Committee to ensure the price of food is subsidized to standard rates. Subsequently, I will work the IT and other departments to ensure printing services are reduced or free to all student.
Peer Support and Counseling Service
I will work closely with the department of Student Life and Experience to ensure students are given maximum support, will lobby for additional staff counselors to increase counseling Services and reduce queue and waiting time. It is obvious that Mental Health should be taken as priority, if students are requested to wait for 4 weeks before being attended to by a counseling staff, then, the aim of setting that office has been defeated.
Student Life Welfare
Upon resuming office as your VP Welfare, I will officially meet with the Director of Reslife to discuss how we can support student living in hostels and distance students. The experience one has in his flat could also influence negatively on his academic performance. Hostels should be fully equipped, and reduction on prices will not be a bad idea. I will also work and support the sabbatical and executive team in various capacity to ensure student voices are heard and the welfare of students are actively protected.
As a student, I will also benefit from these proposal, which makes it worth proposing. Thank you and I really do appreciate your time and vote.
