Radka Malcová

Student in the 3rd year of Czech-German studies, but in SIMS for the first time. You won't meet her on the street without headphones, because without music she won't even go. Along with the ban on concerts, her main hobby ended: painting glitter on friends for concerts (which Václav Klaus would call a left-wing fad). And so only the leadership of an eurofederalistic association and sending of dumb memes remained. Always makes fun of herself although being in crisis 24/7 (she may look like a princess, but she still takes out the garbage and drinks beer after that). According to her friends: a strong and independent woman, a drinker, happy and depressive at the same time, a caring “mother” ... She believes that she will use her care and dedication in SIMS to help younger students. In addition, she will communicate with other student associations at the faculty, organize debates and help with anything that will be needed.

Tasks: Organisation of debates, Cooperation with other student clubs of FSS
