SthlmUP

Who are we?

SthlmUP is a student association for you who study the PAO program, PAO master, AKPA or similar education at Stockholm University. 

SthlmUP works for a broad community among the semesters and to create a good community. Our purpose is also to be involved, together with our members, and influence the education while we make good contacts with working life. 

What is our purpose?

The purpose of SthlmUP is to gild the study time for our members. This is done in part through our four different committees that work to create different activities. Within the committees, there are good opportunities to get involved high and low.

Five quick questions with the board

Karin Murray
President

1. Term

- Term 6

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- I have always wanted to get involved in student life. It is really an extremely important part of the studies and a large part of university life. Recommends everyone to get involved in some way during their studies, so worth it!

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- I probably think that my best memories with the association are from the Åre trips. It is wonderful to ski, go après ski and spend time with both the association and lots of other wonderful students, who does not love it?

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- What I wanted for a long time was a dolphin trainer, unclear enough. I did not really have much interest in swimming but think it was rather based on the movie Flipper (who did not start to love dolphins from that movie?).

5. What is your dream destination?

- I love to travel and think that all places have their charm but currently I want to travel to Canada. Otherwise, I have a little love for European countries like Italy and Switzerland.

Ebba Lagerkvist
Vice Chairman

1. Term

- Term 3

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

I love meeting new people and creating community. That SthlmUP was such a committed association was a big surprise and for me it was obvious that I would be a part of it.

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- What I come up with first is the kick-in, then you really got the feeling of student life! I have not had time to experience all the association's events yet, but just getting involved in the board as I do now has been so much fun!

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- I wanted (WANT) to become a student at Hogwarts, which I think I share with many others. Mainly to eat all the food that was magically conjured up, and who does not want to be able to conjure? Is a strong believer that my letter never arrived.

5. What is your dream destination?

- The city of Crema in Italy where they recorded my favorite movie "call me by your name". The city has stayed a bit in time, and wants to spend a whole summer there, without a mobile or computer just like in the movie.

Priya Kaur
Project manager

1. Term

- Term 5

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- When I started, I was surprised that things actually happened at SU, had really not counted on it and then I felt that I want to be a part of it. Be able to contribute to everyone else also having a good and fun study time.

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- Still have to say the European trip to Berlin, had so much fun and 100% wants to go on the next European trip when it ends!

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- Apparently wanted to be the kindergarten teacher haha, why? Well, because I had a kindergarten teacher named Pia and I wanted to be like Pia and therefore I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher when I was little.

5. What is your dream destination?

- It was difficult! Right now have no specific dream destination, just longing until you can travel again and just enjoy it! Appreciate the destination you actually go to!

Livija Bekkhus
Finance manager

1. Term

- Term 5

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- After reading the economics courses during term 3, which I thought were great fun, I applied for the role of finance manager because it is a perfect opportunity to learn the subject more deeply.

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- The most fun is to see all the new T1s on the kick-in and that they are tagged on what we have planned.

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- I always answered that I wanted to be rich, or boss, but they go together and I feel that I am on the right track, as a personnel scientist it is not completely impossible to become one.

5. What is your dream destination?

- I love to travel and see new places. My dream trip has always been to go to a paradise island, so Hawaii answers!

Vilma Hargeus
Chairman of the Business Committee

1. Term

- Term 3

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- I am quite restless as a person and like when a lot happens. I thought it would be fun with a challenge and saw an opportunity to learn something new. So fun to be involved in student life and meet new people.

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- Had super fun during my entire kick-in, that was also when I got my eyes open for sthlmup. The kick-in session which was the final clip of the kick-in weeks was really fun, my team won!

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- As a child I wanted to be a writer and hairdresser haha! Was a real bookworm when I was little & often wrote my own short stories. I wanted to be a hairdresser because I loved to look good & thought it was fun with changes.

5. What is your dream destination?

- My dream destination is to go to New Zealand as they have such cool nature.

Lamia Nabil
Chairman of the Education Committee

1. Term

- Term 4

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- I met some wonderful board members who inspired me to want to get involved and develop in connection with the board work!

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- During our kick-in, we went bowling, which was super fun! I'm apparently totally into throwing a heavy ball and dotting bowling pins so I got to know myself much better.

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

-Veterinarian and real estate agent! Because I loved animals (from a distance) and wanted to make good money haha! I did not even dare lift a rabbit or any animal for that matter so the PAO program was good.

5. What is your dream destination?

- Seoul, South Korea here I come!

Izabella Zulfiyeva
Chairman of the Entertainment Committee

1. Term

- Term 3

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- I love to gather people and make sure you have fun and that everyone gets to know each other! Therefore, I thought that the role of chairman of the entertainment committee would suit me perfectly!

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- During the kick-in, on the first day we had to compete against other teams in different disciplines, write rhymes, paint flags and much more. A super fun day and a great way to get to know your new classmates and the association.

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- I wanted to become a sports star and be able to play hockey all day and get paid for it. Talk about luxury! As you may understand, this did not happen at all.

5. What is your dream destination?

- I am completely in love with Australia, as soon as I get the chance I want to go back!

Jasmine Fooladi
Chairman of PRMU

1. Term

- Term 2

2. What made you want to get involved in SthlmUP?

- I got a good impression of SthlmUP during the kick-in and it seemed fun to get involved. That there is a student life at SU was a positive surprise and of course I wanted to be a part of it all!

3. Funniest memory with the association?

- Everything with the kick-in was super fun!

4. What did you want to be as a child and why?

- As a child, I had a lot of different thoughts about what I wanted to be, but I think the first idea that was hatched was that I wanted to be a princess. Puffy, pink dresses and tiaras, it was pure frame dream for my 5-year-old self! But it obviously does not always turn out exactly as you thought, (thank goodness).

5. What is your dream destination?

- There are lots of countries I want to visit, the Philippines, among other things, seems to be great! In this situation, however, any trip would be a dream. If I only get one trip to the nearest municipality, I will be happy.

Committee

The Entertainment Committee

The entertainment committee ensures that the study period gets an extra golden edge. Our mission is to bring students together from all semesters by arranging memorable moments. Our goal is to dispel the myth that there is no student life at Stockholm University, which we do by arranging events such as kick-ins, exam pubs, sessions, trips abroad, parties, ski trips and much more!

The Business Committee

The Business Committee strives to link academic studies with the labor market. We work actively to create a broader understanding of working life and the variety of work by connecting with the business community and future employers. We do this by inviting relevant lecturers, arranging workshops, mingling opportunities, study visits and a Personnel Science Day, which provides an insight into working life after the education.

Education Committee

We strive to together create a platform where all types of proposals effectively reach either the responsible teacher or directly to the management team. It all depends on where the opportunity for implementation is greatest. This balance is a constantly living process as we belong to no less than six different institutions, all of which have different needs.

PR & Marketing Committee

The PR and Marketing Committee works overall with all of SthlmUP's committees to develop the internal as well as the external information flow. Through various social platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, we develop creative solutions where our hope is that we will reach all members of SthlmUP in a more efficient way. We also work actively to improve the website where our goal is for the website to become the central and obvious meeting point for all Stockholm University's humanities students.

Activity Committee

SthlmUP's newest committee!

The focus of the committee is on mental and physical health for all members. We try to create this through fun activities, lectures and the like. The committee also includes the training group.

The committee has just been created and is looking for new tagged people to develop it

The Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee interviews applicants and the candidates who choose to accept the nominations. After that, the nomination committee deliberates to agree on a proposal that is first presented to the board and then to the members. Finally, it is the annual meeting or the half-yearly meeting, ie members present at each meeting, who decide who may manage the trust for each role. 

The work of the Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee's work is to find suitable candidates for the roles in the Board, the Nomination Committee and the Audit before the annual meeting, and to find suitable candidates for vacant roles before the half-yearly meeting.

How the work is carried out is up to each nomination committee and can, for example, involve participating in kicks for new PAO students and attending SthlmUP's committee meetings. Members can apply for the various roles themselves, and be nominated by other members of the association. You can read more about all roles here:
