ANANYA BAGRI

I present the case of ANANYA BAGRI for social sciences faculty representative

 

I want to speak to my representative! Surely you’ve heard this countless times on TV. If you have any concerns or suggestions, don't ever hesitate to come and talk to me, your ‘representative!’

 

Random facts that no one asked for: 

  • My name means 'unique'

  • I have been skydiving

  • I am 5 feet tall1

  • I'm a first-year law student

  • I want to represent you

  • I don't make empty promises

Top Priorities

 

1. Create a community

There is a need, now more than ever, to foster a stronger sense of community. In light of these trying times, I will push for greater interaction between departments within social sciences.

 

  • Create an interdisciplinary virtual study space. We’ve all been learning remotely, so having a platform to study together would boost morale. It’s also a great way to make new friends and to feel supported!

  • Create online social spaces for you to meet other students within the social sciences faculty and build your professional and personal network.

  • Continue to make social spaces available at Warwick, albeit with strict social distancing measures.


 

2. Let’s Become Interdisciplinary

Are you a history student wanting to practice law? A sociology student curious about economics? A philosophy student interested in studying business?

 

  • I will look into the possibility of students taking optional electives (in addition to your course requirements) from different departments. This will allow us to further our knowledge beyond our course

  • Push to allow students to access professional support services (academic counsellors) of different departments

  • Create a database of alumni in every field that is accessible to students within our social sciences faculty

 

3. Support SSLC Course Representatives

Your SSLC representatives put forward your concerns and feedback to your department, and I will be there to support them throughout the process - thereby making sure your concerns are brought to the right people and are implemented in a timely and effective manner.

 

But wait there’s more! I also promise to…

  • Represent the views and opinions of students and work in partnership with the University to meaningfully shape your experience

  • Actively and strategically find solutions to every issue

  • Work in collaboration with departmental representatives and all relevant staff members and students to implement all feedback received

  • Provide you with regular and timely updates as to key events, discussions, and changes that are taking place

  • Communicate any and all challenges that you may be facing with online learning

  • Create a brief newsletter at the end of the year, or bi-yearly (according to what you prefer!) to summarise key events.

  • Identify and present opportunities to develop your skills and employability

  • Deliver on these realistic and achievable promises!

Evidence: I do solemnly, sincerely and truly declare and affirm that the evidence I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth

 

  • I am the current SSLC Course Representative for first-year law students. I understand the inner workings of student-staff liaison and have the relevant experience for this role.

  • I distributed over 5000 surveys to families from low socio-economic backgrounds in Uzbekistan to understand their needs. Based on their answers, I recommended CSR projects to the company I was working with. I represented the people I was working for and facilitated a channel of open communication, and this is a skill I will take to this role.

  • I am an active member of our Warwick community. I am a volunteer for the Warwick Law in Community program and work with the Strategic Public Law Centre. I am a part of numerous societies (both in exec and non-exec positions), such as Law Society, Public Speaking Society, Disney Society, and AIESEC.
