~ Interviews with the students of LUNA ~

The Information Committee has done quite some work this year. It is finally time to post the interviews with the wonderful members of the union that have been carried out during the year. Every week we will post an interview with a member of LUNA that will tell you a bit about what they do for the union. The material has been gathered by the members of the committee, Sebastian Wolsing and Isa Bengzon.

A long time ago, LUNA had a student magazine called Nadir, and so to honour the legacy of our former predecessors, we have decided to name these updates Nadir!

First up is the previous chairperson of the Gender and Equality Committee (JoL), Hanna Thosteman, that will give us a brief description of what it was like to be chairperson and what they have achieved during the year 2016/17.

Hanna Thosteman

“As the chairperson of this fantastic committee, I must say the past year has been outstanding. We have managed to execute the biggest event in the history of the committee, together with Medicinska Föreningen and Teknologkåren. We invited the “conversational activist” and lecturer Navid Modiri to talk to our students about integration, fear and stepping outside one’s comfort zone. Thanks to the ambitious and hardworking volunteers, the evening we planned for a year was a great success and much appreciated among the students. The committee has grown from an almost unknown part of LUNA to become a visible asset for all members, and we want to keep working with discrimination and gender issues so that all students can feel safe and accepted.”
