Solveig Marie Fleischer (24), who currently holds the vice-presidential position, assumes her new role on July 1.

Enthusiastic, honest and hard-working

This is a major vote of confidence and I hope I can meet the students’ expectations, says Fleischer. She describes herself as enthusiastic, honest and hard-working.

Fleischer was elected during the student parliament’s annual congress at Hell in Stjørdal recently, assuming the role from Lars Jakob Hegge.

Strengthening student involvement

Fleischer has clear priorities going forward.

- I will put a lot of work into improving student involvement and the level of participation. Making students aware of the opportunities that exist outside the lecture halls is vital.

- We need more students to get involved as representatives, in social contexts as well as with professional theme days, she says.

The 24-year old from Stjørdal studied at Nord University and at Nord-Trøndelag University College. She holds a bachelor’s degree in multimedia technology as well as a one-year diploma in Public Administration.
