UiAdoc will have its fifth Annual General Assembly on December 8 (Thursday) 2022.
Mahla Bakhshi, who is a PhD student in the Engineering and Science, told us why she would like to run for the position of Vice President.
"After a talk with the current VP in one of the events organized by UiAdoc, I became interested in running for the VP position.
On my first day at UiA, mid-Nov, I was scrolling through my email inbox full of meetings and introductory documents. I found an email from UiAdoc for the wine-tasting event, which was open for registration. By then, I did not know about UiAdoc and its role, but my friends/colleagues and I decided to attend anyways. Apart from having fun, I met UiAdoc board members, and get to know other Ph.D./postdocs, which was a fantastic opportunity for me as a newcomer.
With my first positive experience with UiAdoc, I eagerly registered for the Christmas party, and some people that I had met from the previous event encouraged me to run for VP. My thoughts on that and the discussions I had with other UiAdoc board members led me to sign up for the board. Considering my strong communication and interpersonal skills, I believe I can play an active role in the UiAdoc committee. Although I am new to Norway and UiA, I have attended almost all events and made good connections with other employees, which I feel makes me a suitable candidate for this position.
Moreover, Ashvini, a friend, colleague, and ex-housemate, is running for the event coordinator position. Thus, we are confident that we can effectively collaborate together as board members of UiAdoc."
