TNMU student became the junior mayor of Ternopil

On November 13, 2019, Romanna Pavliuk, a sixth-year medical student of I. Horbachevsky Ternopil National Medical University, became a junior mayor of Ternopil.
Last academic year, Romanna successfully chaired the TNMU Student Parliament.
“As an advisor to the mayor on youth policy, my primary responsibility is to analyze the problems and advocate the interests of the youth in the city council and executive structures.
I plan to make the city more inclusive, so I am very glad that this year for the first time a representative of the Ukrainian Society of the Deaf has joined the new council of youth.
First of all, I want to improve communication between youth organizations and I have certain initiatives that will make the city safer, ” Romanna Pavliuk said.
Today, her team includes three deputies – Yaroslav Zhdanovych, Roman Radiiovskyi and Vitalii Matvieiev. A third-year student of the Faculty of Dentistry Nazar Kovbasa, Romanna’s deputy in the Student Parliament, remains her permanent assistant. This year he was elected to the Student Parliament of TNMU and became the deputy of a new chairman.
Romanna hopes that she will be able to establish productive cooperation for the benefit of the city and will make a lot of efforts.
“I decided to apply for this position in the summer, so for almost half a year I was preparing, attending trainings, forums, workshops and gaining experience of other youth councils, including those in Estonia, Poland and the Czech Republic. Thanks to this, we managed to create a strategy that appealed to the new members of the youth council, ” Romanna Pavliuk shared her experience.
Congratulations to our student on this achievement. We wish her much success!
