Nominate for the HHGS board 2020
The candidates for the HHGS Board 2020 are now available!
Since I started at Handelshögskolan in 2017 the student union has been a massive part of my life. I’ve met a lot of amazing people and learned both about our university and HHGS. All my spare time has gone to different projects where I’ve done everything from starting my own association and sitting in different boards, to being on stage in Spexet. HHGS is nothing without its members and I believe there’s a lot we can do to make our union a better place for all of us. With me as your president I will make sure that there are more available areas actually open for you to study in at all times, a greater focus on making our student union more sustainable, and make HHGS live by its key words; to be welcoming, encouraging and inspiring.
With my energy, experience and strive I will be the president you need.
In 2018 I had the great honour of serving as the President of EF, I had the privilege to lead an extraordinary group of individuals and together we did everything we could to make the time at Handels the best it could be for hundreds of students. That was the experience of a lifetime and it is what has inspired me to run for President of HHGS.
Leadership is difficult, it requires vision, experience and ambition, but also humility, kindness and teamwork, a leader must take tough decisions and sacrifices. I believe that I possess these qualities and have what it takes to lead HHGS into the future.
With your help I want to create a more inclusive union with greater transparency, a union that strives to give its members nothing but the very best, and to include them in the process! Together we can take HHGS to new heights!
Candidates for Vice President
Hi! My name is Charlotte and I’m in the second year of my law studies. During my time at the school you might have seen me taking care of Handelspuben. This semester I’ve also been a member of the economy committee in HHGS. For me, HHGS is important and a big part of making my time at Handelshögskolan fun and interesting. I want to be a part of the board to make sure that many more students can explore the amazing parts of HHGS.
As Vice President I want to contribute to lower the treshold and for the students to contact HHGS and be a more active part of the union. I have a lot of experience both as project manager and board member. I’ve also heard that I’m probably the only member that’ve read all the meeting minutes for the HHGS board meetings at my time at Handels!
I’m Anna Jahre and I’m running for Vice President in this year’s election. I’m a student in economics, currently in my third year. During these years I’ve gained a lot of experience within different parts of the Student Union. I’ve been a part of associations, done many projects and always worked closely with the board. I know what is needed from the board and I primarily think that the work of the board should be about supporting all members, associations and projects. It is You that make this union. Furthermore, I see a great responsibility in having, not only a transparent union, but also an equal school where everyone feels welcomed. My experience, my organizational ability and my will to do a great job with a positive energy are definitely the reasons why you should vote for me as Vice President of the Student Union board, 2020.
With love /Anna
Candidates for Chief Financial Officer
Hi! My name is Jessica Tilly and I want to be Chief Financial Officer. I am studying environmental science and economics and my primary goal for the next year is to work with efficiency and sustainability in HHGS. This year I have been president of the program association SMIL which gives me an advantage to be a supportive role for the next years associations as I am aware of how they do their daily work. I love new challenges, learning new things and that’s why I am applying for this role. I think this will suit me perfect and be really fun and I hope you choose me!
Before I found, and fell in love with GADDEN, and HHGS, I wasn’t aware of just how much effort it takes to run HHGS. I would love to set aside some of my other commitments in order to make such an effort as is necessary to enable for other students to have as much of a good time here at Handels as I have, regardless if their idea of a good time is for example to run with Handelsjoggen or to spend months, preparing and arranging a career fair. After working pretty close with the former CFO, Alice, through both GADDEN and the Economy Committee I have a pretty good picture of what the role as CFO means. And I believe I can handle the task! It would be my main mission, as part of the board, to “empower” all the heroes who contribute to the HHGS!
Candidates for Head of Business Relations
I’m Hannes Sennevall and I’m running for Head of Business Relations.
During my present participations in different associations in HHGS a spark has ignited in me, leading to me wanting to contribute furthermore to our student union. While I’ve been in these associations, especially as president of EF, I’ve learnt the importance of a good relationship between our student union and the business world. Saying that, I know what responsibility I’m running for, and I know that I will do it more than well. I know this, because this is something I really want to do, and when I find something that I really want to do I always do my outmost and as well as possible.
I believe myself to be a people person, and one who loves to interact with others. Therefore responsibility for external relations, and the Head of Business Relations position, is cut out for me.
Candidates for Head of Education
There are currently no candidates for Head of Education.
Candidates for Head of Associations
Because of my previous experience as President of Ekonomiska Föreningen and my past involvement in several other associations I feel I am a suitable choice for the position as Head of Associations, I believe I have a good understanding of what the needs of the associations are and what kind of support they are looking for from the Union.
HHGS is nothing without its associations and our projects. Thus I feel the need to make their voice heard on all levels of HHGS. It would be my main mission, as part of the board, to “empower” all the heroes who contribute to HHGS. As a former project manager, I would like to work as a bridge between the projects, the associations and the board, because I know the difficulties that may arise for the projects and I would like to do my best to make them as few and as small as possible!
Candidates for Head of Events
Hi! My name is Charlotte and I’m in the second year of my law studies. During my time at the school you might have seen me taking care of Handelspuben. This semester I’ve also been a member of the economy committee in HHGS. For me HHGS is important and a big part of making my time at Handelshögskolan fun and interesting. I want to be a part of the board to make sure that many more students can explore the amazing parts of HHGS.
As Head of Events I want to make different events to attract more students that’s not that involved in HHGS yet. I want to work with guides with helpful ideas to make it easier for the members to arrange their events alone and together with other associations. There are a lot of ideas among the members and I want them to make great events together.
Candidates for Head of Marketing
Hello! My name is Emil Landén and I am currently studying my second year at the business economics programme at Handelshögskolan and candidate to the head of marketing post for HHGS 2020.
I want to further strengthen the HHGS brand outwards and continue to develop the phenomenal work that the previous head of marketing have done. Moreover, I want to share the union’s daily work as well as listen to students’ opinions regarding what they value as important qualities of the union. Handelshögskolan in Gothenburg should be seen as the obvious choice when it comes to high class education and a rich student life.
Working with marketing and social media is something I love to do and would appreciate to be given the opportunity to work with this on a bigger platform such as HHGS. I hope to see you in the union next year.
Candidates for Head of Administration
As Head of Administration my priorities would be that the HHGS facilities are well suited for the students, fresh and easily accessible. The unions associations should have the necessary access they need for their activities, as well as students should be able to eat at appropriate places and have access to the school to be able to study at their time. I’ve had a lot of experience with being responsible for some of the union’s facilities already, and I hope to keep all of them as good as possible and for the benefit for everyone.
Candidates for Head of International Relations
Sofia dos Santos
After two years of being active in the International Committee, I now feel ready to take on more responsibility. My ambition is to build up a warm and open atmosphere within HHGS, that feels appealing and valuable for every student at Handels. I believe that in order to tighten the bonds within the union, the associations and committees needs to work closer together. More common events in English would enable a deeper interaction and a stronger connection among the HHGS-members, which would attract more students to our community and improve Handels’s international reputation.
I want HHGS to be a platform where students with different backgrounds can socialize, be creative and have fun together. The HHGS-community should radiate familiarity, my vision is a strong and united HHGS that ties the members together, regardless of their nationality. I want to continue to make the student union a more including place for everyone.
