Stefan Biberstein – standing for MUSA President 2019
As Musa president I want to end the question “what does Musa even do?” through an exciting program of on-campus events and a fortnightly Musa roundup, this would be an infographic or short video every two weeks letting you know what we’ve been up to including: Total volunteer hours, recent and upcoming events, total money given away in emergency grants to students. Basically, you deserve to know what Musa has done towards our mission of improving your student experience here at Massey.
Another thing I’m passionate about is introducing student voice into core and compulsory papers here at Massey. If we’re being forced to pay for papers that we cannot graduate without, they need to be some of the best papers on offer and currently that’s just not true. However, progress is being made as myself and some other students have met with our director of arts to address this issue within the BA core papers. As Musa President I’d like to pressure other colleges to do the same.
By voting for Stefan Biberstein you’re voting for an experienced candidate, Transparency at Musa and Student voice in compulsory papers here at Massey.

Do you know that the Maori name for Palmerston North, Papaioea, is believed to mean ‘How beautiful it is’? That’s right, beautiful Palmy has students from all corners around the globe, a brilliant place to meet amazing people and exchange culture, which is what I’ve always interested in and dreamed of.
I will work closely with IPGMs and various cultural clubs, ensuring international students’ education and welfare needs are being met and satisfied. Let us together create a fun, healthy, vibrant student environment. Cheers;)

It was a privilege to represent you the students for 2018 and I would love to have the opportunity for a 2nd time. This year I have been involved with the launch and running of Thursdays in Black on the Manawatu campus. Also, I have been working in conjunction with the other executives to help make Massey a better experience for all the students.
If elected again as MUSA executive I would continue working to positively improve student life on campus. I believe I can use my knowledge and experience in the role to ensure that your time at Massey is a more fun safe and inclusive experience

2018 presented many opportunities for me to represent you as the Education Officer. As well as helping with the general governance of MUSA, attending regular committees, and helping run lots of fun events, I’ve also helped run the Class Rep trainings, and made a submission to the Education and Workforce Select Committee in Parliament about the need for greater student representation at Universities.
It has been a privilege to represent you in my first term on the executive. I’ve learnt so much about the issues we students face on a daily basis. My skill set to engage with these issues has improved immensely, and there is still room for me to do more. I have the passion to continue representing students in 2019, and keep fighting for a better student experience.

I love young people in general, and I strive to help students reach their potential and have their best shot at a positive and fun university experience. I believe in everyone having a voice and having equal opportunities to go out into the world and do something great. I’m always down to have a chat and to help out in any way possible, whether I’m in an office, running an event, learning in class, or just making sure students are having a good time. I’m ready for a new challenge and an exciting year ahead!

I’m not finished yet though! This role has so much potential to better the lives of students, and I would be honoured to have the opportunity to continue to represent, advocate and support you all. In the coming year I will continue to fight for improved health and counselling services, better bus timetables, growing opportunities for personal development and of course, free food. If you’re struggling with anything during your time at Massey, please come up and see us. We’re here to give students a voice and will do anything we can to make things happen for you.
