Candidate text:

Hi! My name is Markus Grorud Gaasholt, I am a 22 year old student from Tønsberg and are currently studying a bachelor’s degree in automation at NTNU in Ålesund.
I am strongly committed to improve the study environment for students at NTNU. This is the reason why I have been sitting in the Studentting as both deputy- and permanent representative for a few years. Personally, I feel that I have made a difference during my time as a representative and I therefore really want to continue doing so. To be a representative in the Studentting is something that I really enjoy.
Student volunteering and student politics in particular is something I have been very committed to during my studies. In addition to my role as deputy- and permanent representative in the Studentting, I have been very involved in the Student parliament at NTNU in Ålesund. At this moment, I am in the working committee of the Student parliament at NTNU in Ålesund as the officer of environmental sustainability. I really love my position in the Student parliament and I have already introduced a policy that the students at NTNU in Ålesund want there to be more focus recycling of waste, which has a great impact on the local environment.
When I started in student politics, I was most passionate for improving physical learning environment with a focus on improving the air quality on campus. I am still very passionate about improving air quality, but I have also become very interested in making NTNU a more sustainable university, especially when it comes to climate and environment.
As a person, I am very committed and dedicated, and described by my fellow students as a good friend.
I hope that I will have the opportunity to sit as a representative this next year and work for a better student environment at NTNU!
