Candidate text:

I am Ida Austigard Ødegård, and I’m 21 years old. I’m from a small place just outside of Stavanger called Jørpeland, and I moved to Trondheim a year and a half ago to study nanotechnology. Since then, I’ve become a part of the wonderful community of students in Trondheim, both academically and socially. During this time, I’ve reflected on ways to improve our university lives even further, as I am a determined girl who doesn’t shy away from challenges and who isn’t afraid to make changes. I have prior experience from school politics, both through the “Elevorgansisasjonen” and as leader of the student council at my former school. In other words, I have an above average interest in politics, especially in regard to education.

I think that the road to academic success is shorter when you are part of a healthy studying environment. Therefore, it is vitally important to combat loneliness among students. Fadderperioden is a central part of kickstarting this effort, and more study areas for the specific fields of study can further improve the unity. Furthermore, it is important that those who wish to use the campus have the opportunity to do so. In other words, rooms for group work and studying should be prioritized. I also believe that engaging and structured lectures are paramount in order to succeed academically. Better lectures keep spirits up during the semester, and frees up time to progress your understanding of topics instead of spending more time merely learning the basics.

My decision to run for Studenttinget comes from my belief that the students’ voices should be heard and that our perspectives are important in topics regarding our day-to-day. I wish to use my voice to further students’ interests, and I hope to get the opportunity to be a part of this by representing the students of NTNU in Studenttinget.
