Hi, my name is Mariya Karlashchuk, I’m 22 years old and a fourth year student Applied Mathematics. At the moment I’m chairman and officer Educational Affairs at W.S.G. Abacus. In the past years I have participated in panel meetings, where students evaluated the modules of their programme, and I have been member of the Faculty Council of EEMCS two years ago. In the time that I have been active with education I have encountered many topics which are interesting to work on and even to improve. Joining UReka seemed as a natural step towards helping students with various issues, like workload, quality of teaching and activism.
