Pelican is doing a get to know the Guild election tickets edition. First up is Special Consideration Party!

What are your motivations for running for this position this year?

My motivations are devious.

What’s your life motto?

“The best thing about the future is that it comes.”

-Abraham Lincoln real

What is your most important policy? 

Do you really have to ask?

Why should the students of UWA vote for you? 

I won the year 6 Cross Country race in Primary School.

What does the Guild do?

Play with lutes and joust each other ig idk.

How many times have you used special consideration during your time at uni? 

Not enough.

What’s the best place to study on campus?

Winthrop Hall after Secretary Will Ho turns it into a laser tag arena.

What’s your favourite memory from your time at uni so far?

I don’t know about uni but I went fishing last year and caught some salmon. That was pretty cool.

What do you enjoy outside of uni?

Doing my taxes.

Would you rather never see your loved ones again or never be able to use special consideration again?

I can’t believe you’d ask a question like this. I treasure all of my family and loved ones very dearly. I can’t even imagine a world where I’m deprived of their boundless love and support.

But I’ll adapt when I trade them for that sweet spec con.
