  • Who is Pablo?

    Living in different cities throughout my life has made me appreciate the value of a diverse environment. Hence, one of the reasons I co-founded 020 was to offer international students a louder voice in the University issues. Subsequently, As a candidate, I will represent all students equally to ensure that necessary widespread developments are carried out in the Faculty.

  • Who is Johanna?

    My name is Johanna, I am 23 years old and a Political Science student at UvA. I’m always up for new challenges and creating meaningful change, which can only happen if we as a party figure out what students are really concerned about. Hence, to find the best solutions, it is crucial to start substantial discourse involving all affected parties. As a result, I have decided to join 020 since it combines innovative and progressive ideas with pragmatism. Subsequently, for me, 020 means creating an exchange and tackling many relevant issues at the same time.

    Johanna in the FSR-FMG Council.

    Above all, inclusion is the most important topic in my eyes since it affects students in all aspects of their student life. 020 can hereby serve as a platform that increases the community spirit among all students of various backgrounds. I want to acknowledge and address the negative experiences of all students. I am thus working on files dealing with sexual misconduct and mental health. Taking care of mental health is a relevant task all students have to deal with. For instance, the University should promote “mindfulness”, especially during our stressful exam periods. Another crucial part of my work is, and has always been, the focus on women. Considering myself a feminist, I strive for equal rights and opportunities for women in all aspects of life, including their time at the University.

  • Who is Alessandro?

    I am a 20-year-old Anglo-Italian looking to grasp the opportunity I had to move to Amsterdam. Being part of the student representative body is something I have always done. Thus, I hope my previous experience contributes to 020’s goal of improving the UvA. The main reason behind my decision to join 020 is my determination to close the gap between what is being done and what could be done. For me, 020 is the embodiment of this pragmatic attitude and as a candidate, I’m looking forward to pushing forward our policy proposals to enact real change.

    Alessandro in the FSR-FMG Council.

    Specifically, in the Council, I promote 020’s goal of fostering an inclusive community spirit within the University. Consequently, we can create a long-lasting memory of a vivid common spirit and assuring a thick web of networking to help us prosper in our future careers. By being part of the FSR-FMG council, I hope to raise awareness that altogether the student body can yield real positive impact.
