The OneDundee bloggers had a chat with Zining to help you get to know him better:
Q: Zining, why did you decide to run for this role?
A: During my third year I participated in the Student Representative Council (SRC) as the General Representative. I engaged with students from all backgrounds and enjoyed making friends with them in my role. I also assisted my fellows in organising more events, including the Chinese New Year Event and Climate Change Conference, which led to me having a great passion for organising events.
Q: What are your aims for the year?
A: In my campaign, I would like to attain these goals:
- Create more public events to improve engagement between DUSA and students.
- Assist societies in organising more events and giving students a new platform to illustrate themselves.
- Create more public events to improve inter-universities engagement which can help students to have more opportunities to broaden horizons.
Q: What can you help students with?
A: I can improve the engagement between DUSA and students. I would like to encourage students to participate in and organise societies. I will also assist the wellbeing of societies so that they can achieve their values.
Q: What made you choose to study at Dundee?
A: Dundee is an amazing city with sunshine and friendly people.
Q: What’s the best piece of advice you can offer a new student?
A: Explore yourself, keep away from your comfort zone and do not hesitate to capture meaningful opportunities.
Q: What’s your favourite memory during your time at Dundee?
A: I enjoyed the time with my colleagues when I was in SRC, in which I broadened my horizon and improved my interpersonal skills.
