What made you decide to run for Women’s Officer?
We are both passionate about activism and felt that we cold represent the voice of the student body sincerely.

Sum up your main policies.
We have three primary goals:
– Promote awareness about student health on campus
– Increase trans* visibility within the Women’s Committee
– Working and building close relationships between colleges

Describe yourselves in three words.
Dedicated. Aspirational. Fabulous.

What makes you different to the other candidates?
We possess corporeal forms. (We are uncontested.)

What experience do you have that will be good for the role?
We know how YUSU works as we both have close links with the Union.

What will you do different to Emily Inglis and Peggy Lockwood-Lord, the current Women’s Officers?
We will maintain a more prominent online presence and engage with the student body in an informal manner.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourselves.
Ananna: I am a pro at peeling grapefruits.

What do you think of the other candidates?
Once again, no one else is running, which slightly disappoints us.

What do you think the biggest challenge you’ll face during the elections will be?
[That] there will be so much traffic from other positions during the elections that people will forget about Women’s Officer and the concerns we are trying to address.

How do you plan on winning the election?
Since no one else is running, we feel relatively sure that we will win the election. Nevertheless, we still plan to run an aggressive and informative campaign in an accessible, approachable and creative format. There will be music, that’s all we’re saying.
