Ppl I know that time is a precious commodity that no of us can afford these days. well therefore I?d like to keep this manifesto simple; keep it real.
Although I haven?t had a chance to be involved in the union before however I know the requirements of the student body and I know what needs to be done in order to meet them.
As a former president of my school?s red crescent society, from my experiences as a team leader in various events, this year?s mech soc event organiser and my hall committee member, has taught and honed my communication and organisational skills.

My message to you all is simple. I have been in Imperial for four years. I understand what needs to be done and what can be done in this union. I have been involved in the City and Guilds College Union for a couple of years. I have helped organise a number of memorable events including the freshers? ball and have also made many important decisions on your behalf.
In this upcoming college centenary year, let me continue help building a sense of community within the engineers at Imperial College and promote better communication between student and staff.

The CGCU, albeit structurally rigid, retains much flexibility in the application of its work. As each faculty thrusts its ideas forth, I propose no withdrawal. I am convinced it is crucial to develop cohesion in the intra-faculty policies towards promoting a reinvigorated consensus spirit at the inter-faculty level, thus allowing us all to remain on top of the issues on the agenda.
There lies exciting potential for initiatives in the penetration of the inexhaustible issues and projects within and beyond our faculty.
We may struggle through initial resolutions as we tackle current and successive outbursts of new challenges, from reviving our internship program to reorganizing our budget to secure a sabbatical for the presidential position. I however reassure you of my confidence that, in foreplay to our centennial celebrations next year, we will climax to some fantastically palpable results, bringing to fruition the cumulative efforts of years past.

Better schools, cleaner hospitals and less crime.
My aim is to bring sound and competent leadership to the engineering union, providing strong student representation and well organised entertainment events.
