Meity Tang Carlman

Meity Tang Carlman
ASA President

Hello! My name is Meity Tang Carlman (pronounced as the month of “May” and a cup of “Tea”). I am a proud Malaysian student, in my second year, doing a Bachelor’s in Communication, majoring in Management. As an international student I’ve noticed it can be hard to make friends and connections here. After thinking about why, I’ve come to notice that we are still very divided in our campus cultures. This is something I would like to change and trust it is not only needed but will be beneficial to the ASA and Massey University. With my experience, as an International Student and background in communication, I believe I have a unique background that could benefit the new ASA team. These attributes may benefit me, in running a student body efficiently.  I would like to acknowledge the current teams’ efforts and successes over the past year, and hope as a new candidate I can continue these achievements with my team.

Nur Sabrina Idayu Abdul Latif (Sabrina)
ASA Vice-President

Hi, I’m Sabrina Abdul Latif, a second year accountancy student and I would love to be your VP. You may know me as the only head-scarfed girl doing dance performances this semester. My aim is to ensure that every student has access to whatever support they need in order to make their time at Massey University as wonderful as possible. My passion is to create a culture of WE within the ASA community and ensure ALL students feel confident in raising any issues that occur in their university experience. If there is something that you want to see improved that doesn’t appear on this manifesto, get in touch, as I want to represent YOU! If elected as Vice President, I intend to:

  • Have a common area for After-Hours access for students
  • Increase students’ feedbacks as to provide service more tailored to what students want
  • Promote more cultural events
  • Provide more confidence building workshops

I had a great time being the VP of Students’ Association in high school & clubs’ committee team here. I will endeavour to bring all valuable experience gained and channel it into this VP role. I would really appreciate your support! Remember - SABRINA FOR VP!!

ASA Clubs' and Engagement Executive

Hey y’all My name is Shavneel Narayan and get ready to be engaged up in this club. I’m running to become your 2019 Clubs and Engagement Executive. Currently in the process of finishing my business degree here at Massey university. My interest includes, sleeping, foodventures, socialising with friends, also recently caught the travel bug, so I’m in the process of finding my next travel destination. I think this position is good for me because of my many personalities which will help me make the most of this position. Some of characteristics that will help me in this position are: my easy-going nature, my determination, my adaptability and my approachable friendly personality. My goal for this position is to build a more inclusive community here at Albany, where every student can come and hangout in between their lectures. I feel it is necessary for students to create overall university experiences which doesn’t only include lectures, but also other facilities and events that occur at our Albany campus. I really want to ensure that our Albany campus feels like a thriving community with its own social culture, and everyone feels more included.

Monique Neal

Monique Neal
ASA Education Executive

Heellllooooo!!! My name is Monique, and I am the current Welfare Representative for the ASA. After spending one incredible year with all of you students, I am ready to take on a more significant role. I have taken on a project this year in which I also need 2019 to make the biggest difference as it is a long-term goal. I believe that the skills I have learned this year will be extremely beneficial for the 2019 exec as I am aware of all the procedures and can help to mentor some of the other executive members throughout the year. If elected as Education Executive, I believe it is in the best interest of Albany students for there to be increased collaboration between all bodies on campus, expanding upon and building the sense of campus culture and improving student experiences. The ASA is here to make your life easier, and I will make sure that we stick to this value. I can’t wait to see your smiling faces at more free BBQs!

Mingming Wang

Mingming Wang
ASA Academic Representative, ASA Welfare Representative

Hi everyone, I’m Mingming, currently doing my Master of Professional Accountancy and Finance, a first-year student. I’m keen on running for Academic Representative or Welfare Representative in ASA for 2019 term. As an international student studying in a multicultural country, I’m going to stand for students from all different groups and levels. It is essential to realize problems from cross-cultural groups and different level students, so their experience, understanding of culture, and mode of learning will be concerned. Our university needs a student who has a strong responsibility and a lot of passion for giving things a go and not afraid of presenting problems we are facing now. I have done a lot in the marketing field so that I do well in communicating with different people and multitask solving. I’m always proud of being a part of Massey students as an international. Throughout my academic, personal, and professional career, I have taken many leadership roles as well as being class representatives during my bachelor study. Thus, I can ensure your voice will be heard at the table. Your vote for me will bring my experience, profession, and insight to bear upon the task.

Casey McAnnalley

Casey McAnnalley
ASA Social Representative

What's up gang! I'm Casey McAnnalley, running for Social Rep on the 2019 ASA Executive. I’d rather not convince you to vote for me over a piece of paper, so come over and say hey if you see me around and we can have some yarns! However, for the sake of giving in to being a stereotypical narcissistic millennial, I will take 2 seconds to attempt to convince you…I’m a second year Bachelor of Business Studies student, I major in Marketing and minor in Human Resource Management. I enjoy procrastinating studying by baking food, listening to conspiracy podcasts, and scrolling though endless amounts of memes. Over my two years of being a student at Massey I have gained the insight and passion needed to socially represent YOU, the students! You don’t have to drown in study alone! Lets try new things, and meet new people together! A vote for me, is a vote for YOU!

ASA Social Representative

My name is Clarissa, I’m a first year studying a Bachelor of Food Technology. I’m always bouncing around campus with smiles and energy and would love to share that with you by being your Social Representative on the ASA Executive team for 2019. I aspire to make my name in the food industry, sharing the love through food because what better way to wriggle into people’s hearts than through the stomach? I am all for adventure whether it’s jumping out of a plane or a cheeky trip to Maccas. Massey University is home to all of us, let’s make it the best adventure of all filled with friends, fun and memories; together.
