Alex Hard​en​

Hi, my name's Alex and I am VP Voice for 2017-2018. It's my job to ensure that the Voice Zone works to represent the breadth of the student population, no matter who you are and what you're studying. Over the year, the Voice​ Zone and I will ensure that students have a platform to act upon their views and make change, whether that's through the Course Rep programme, our campaigns and projects, or getting involved in Surrey Decides.​​

​Hira Arab

I’m in my second year of Biochemistry at Surrey and just as much as I love the world of science, poetry is where my head is stuck in most of the time. I’ve lived In Pakistan, USA, Scotland and England so I understand how challenging it can be to voice your opinion in a new environment.

​Taz Kingdon

Just as likely to have my head buried in a book as I am to be hurling myself down a dry slope on a pair of skis, I enjoy most things! This year will be my second year at Surrey, studying Politics and Biological Psychology. Communication is my priority however; whether that be between students, sports clubs, societies, the Union or university departments. ​

​Diana Dakik

Hello! My name is Diana Dakik and I’m a final year Veterinary Bioscience student. I’m originally Lebanese but was born and have lived most of my life in Zambia. Since I was very young, I’ve been massively into horse riding and have spent most of my time at Surrey involving myself in the Equestrian Club. I’ve been Vice President, President and now Treasurer of the club and have really enjoyed it so far! ​

Olivia Mitchell​

Hi, I'm Olivia and I'm a Business Management and Marketing student currently on placement at Electronic Arts. During my second year I became a lot more involved in the Union, balancing two committee positions alongside being a Course Rep within the Business school. I decided to run in Surrey Decides as I believe that everyone's voice should be represented and accounted for as there are many issues that are having a significant impact on student life here are Surrey.
