With the Cohort Captain Elections being held in just a couple of days, today we bring you some insights into the running captains for the Dalston Cohort.

Sacha Emile

What are cohorts?

Sacha: To me, a cohort is a team, a family, a clique. We’re all part of the same colour, achieving different goals. We are united (like Manchester lol, if you’re not a fan, still vote for me pls, at least I’m funny) and we all want our cohort to be the best.

Why do you want to run?

S: In every team, there is a leader, and I think I can be that leader who will always be here helping and representing the people of the yellow army.

What do you thing a cohort captain should be like?

S: A cohort captain should be representing his cohort, of course, but also leading it in front of other people from other cohorts. But most of all, a cohort captain should always push his limits and his teammate’s limits and have fun!  

Why would you be a good captain?

S: I’m a dedicated guy, always happy to talk to people, funny (I think), I loooove competition and I will be motivated to show other cohorts that Dalston is THE main one in the school.

Why should the students vote for you?

S: Because we’ll have the best cohort dinner (French food, guys!!)

What will you promise to your cohort?

S: Politics often make a lot of promises and actually realise 5% of them. My only promise is, even though Yellow is the colour of Hufflepuff, we will not be left on the sideline, and compared to them, we will be part of the Hult story!

What will you be willing to do to achieve those promises?

S: I’ll be motivated to create activities around the campus and off campus, competing against other cohorts and making Dalston great again!

Hajar Bouazzaoui

What are cohorts?

Hajar: To me, Cohorts represent teams that indirectly teach students to collaborate and work together to achieve the same goal to win or to gain points. 

Why do you want to run?

H: To simply make a change and make out of the cohorts a Hult’s brand. Cohorts only exist at Hult, so they should be getting enough attention for more improvements as they make the school outstanding. 

What do you thing a cohort captain should be like?

H: A cohort captain should be a friendly and fun person with serious intentions. Students do no want a boss, they want a friend who can guide, advice and lead them. They want an energetic person that can bring fun to a moment of stress.

Why would you be a good captain?

H: My aim isn’t to be elected as a captain and dwell on my position. I would make a good fit for a Dalston Cohort because I know the majority of Dalston students, I can reach out to 3rd and 4th years as well as freshers. My network is quite big which will be of use when being a captain. I believe in all sorts of communication and I know that when you know how to communicate with students, you win the student.

Why should the students vote for you?

H: If the students want a better version of what a cohort is, then I suppose I am the right option. 

What will you promise to your cohort?

H: I will promise that this year things will be different. I can’t promise the world and fake awards, I can only promise the truth, which is I’ll do my best to make this year a different one. 

What will you be willing to do to achieve those promises?

H: Sky is the limit. So I’ll do my best.

What is your closing statement?

H: Uni is the last step we take before joining the adult world. As much as it is crucial and serious, it has to be sweetened with a flavour of fun. Because later on, we might not be part of a cohorts but employees. Later on, I might not be a Dalston captain but a CEO. So let’s enjoy our current positions as long as it lasts. 

Remember guys, It’s in your hands, keep chasing the feeling.

Don’t forget to vote on Monday during the Cohort Captain Elections to decide who will lead the team! Also, stay tuned to see what the rest of cohorts have to offer!
