I want to work for fair treatment of temporary employees. It is important that temporary employees are given the same prerequisites to carry out their work as what permanent employees do.

- I want to run for the election because I will be a committed voice for the temporary employees, such that we feel included in the important decisions at the university.
- I want to strengthen the relationship between UiAdoc and the University Board. In this way, one can continue the important work of improving how both international and Norwegian temporary employees experience working at the university. I think it is very important to have a good working environment, and I will work hard on issues that have an impact on this. I am also concerned with gender equality and have personally experienced being a girl among a vast majority of men, in a society that needs a push to achieve increased diversity - also in academia (and especially in technology). I want to work for the following three issues if I get elected:
- I am a person who can be trusted and who is easy to get in touch with. I have for a long time been involved in both politics and students' everyday lives, for example have I been a deputy representative for the municipal council in Porsgrunn and a student representative for the ICT master's program at UiA. I have also been responsible for finances in a student organization at UiA. I want to be a clear voice for my temporary colleagues at the university and will do my best to maintain our interests.
