Elections

We use democratic elections to choose the people that will speak and act on your behalf. That means they're your opportunity to choose who represents you.

Candidate for the position of Community Officer

Miss SHADIN DOWSON-ZEIDAN

 

 

I love living in Leeds and want to help make it a safer, greener, more co-operative place.   I’m a third year International Development student with a lot of enthusiasm for a student activism.  I’ve been involved with a number of campaigning societies including PSG and STAR, have been volunteering in the Green Action Food Co-op, and I volunteered for a year with a mental health charity working with refugees in Harehills.  

If elected I will:                                                     

·         Campaign for better, safer housing and take action against rubbish landlords

·         Help more students find local volunteering opportunities

·         Continue to encourage students to cut down on waste, and the council to properly collect recycling from LS6

·         Promote initiatives to support vulnerable groups off campus, by supporting Reclaim the Night and establishing a voucher exchange scheme for asylum seekers

·         Support community-run spaces, such as the Peanut Gallery and the Royal Park School campaign
