Hey, my name is Thomas, a 22-year-old Chemical Engineering student. The last couple of years I have been deeply involved in education at all levels of the university and I am currently in the University Council for UReka. I have gained a lot of experience over these years and especially this year I learned how valuable knowledge in and about the council actually is, so I decided to run for council a second time. No reinventing the wheel, no rewriting Shakespeare, and no building castles out of sand; we need a strong, determined council that is there to represent all students! For me, this means representing students in a way that they feel heard and know what is happening within the university.
