What is you role on the team? What do you do?
I am the lieutenant – better known as the lefty – who is responsible for ensuring that the administration of Publications Committee runs smoothly. I am also there to assist Clare in her editorship should she require it.
Why should people get involved with the QMU as a whole?
I got involved in the QMU through wanting to make changes to a union that I thought best represented the student body as a whole, and one that was able to change with the membership with a way that the other three were unable. Making a difference here doesn’t require anything else but determination to improve the student experience for fellow learners and I would recommend the experience to anyone who has walked in the building and thought that the QMU could do better.
What advice will you pass on to the next Lefty?
I would say to the next Lefty that they should be ready to assist the convener as much as possible. You help them to realise the ideas that they have for the magazine. You also have to ensure that the committee is well fed with Percy Pigs, and that the Facebook group is updated with accurate task lists!
