Known by her friends as “eco mama”, Lyns is that crazy vegan who never stops talking about veganism. Her hobbies include: Pearl necklaces (fake of course!), vegetables, Vox videos, being loud, and writing about anything and everything. Hint hint, her degree of choice is English Literature, Language and Linguistics!
Digital Media Coordinator
Nina is a fourth-year Business and Management student from Sweden, who is probably most known for “not looking very Swedish”. You will usually find her on campus running from meeting to meeting, or taking Instagram pictures in a coffee shop (where she actually wrote this bio).
Meli is a second-year Sociology and Geography student from Nicosia, Cyprus, so she spends most of her time freaking out about the state of the world. In her native language her name means honey but no, she's not as sweet as honey. When she's not collecting feathers, single hoop earrings and scraps of paper from the streets she can be found reading science fiction, writing poetry and taking photographs (mostly of shadows).
Vaiva won’t take it personally if you don’t know how to pronounce her name. (But it’s V-eye-vuh). She spends a lot of her time explaining her backstory to newly befriended strangers. Otherwise, you can find her hanging off of bouldering walls, training with the circus, and reading for her master’s in Psychological Science.
Culture (Interviews & Reviews) Editor
Rowan is a fourth year English Lit & Theatre student who spends her time acting like an idiot in the name of theatre and aggressively cuddling her flatmates.
Isabelle is a 4th year philosophy student who loves a frutiful sesh. After living/studying in Finland for a year, she shaved off all her hair and fell in love with a toy pig! (p.s. don't be mislead by the photo, she hasn't graduated yet.)
Freya is a second-year Textile Design student. Reader and feeder. Baker and pigeon hater. Explorer and hoarder.
Reine is a second year history of art student. She likes painting saucy nudes of herself in her flat with her stinky flatmates and can most often be found straight up vibing in the downstairs of the reading rooms.
Siam is a 4th year English Lit and Theology student. She only just started pronouncing her name right. If you've met her in the last 22 years, she's sorry for the confusion.
Sophie is a second year Maths student who enjoys drinking her body weight in echo falls. Sophie is at her happiest when procrastinating in charity shops, writing to-do lists or enjoying some sweet sweet
downtime with her dwarf hamster, Olive.
Style & Beauty Editor
Lara declares that big pants are the holy trinity of lingerie; sexy, comfy and cute. Besides, she’s style editor so she’s probably on to something here. Don’t be fooled by her ‘extra’ dressing, like the common house spider, Lara is as afraid of you as you are of her. She’s also well known for believing, until recently, that slugs were born out of moisture.
Giselle is a third year Classics student from Cambridge. Outside of struggling through texts of dead languages and words she can't pronounce, you can often find her out on the lacrosse pitch trying her best as a goalkeeper (usually with lack of success), or having an in-depth debate about BREXIT with a stranger over a pint of Tennents in the pub.
Creative Writing Editor
Thomas is a 4th Year English Student. He enjoys bad haircuts, out of focus photography and occasionally reads and writes too.
Emily spends copious amounts of time munching on broccoli and watching queer eye. When she's not busy with this she studies textile and design and stomps around Glasgow in her docs and dungarees, dreaming of making the softest blanket known to mankind (using fibres from broccoli ofc).
Social Media Manager
Ya gal Jem is a fourth year English language ‘student’ who doesn’t know how she’s still a student. She’s a scatty extroverted introvert here to make GUM’s insta pop off. If you need advice/ reviews on the following, hit her up: Gla/ Edi coffee shops, every make up product to ever exist, dangly earrings, vegan substitutes (specifically vegan cheeses), biscuits, dog breeds, creps, niche YouTube channels.
Charlotte is a 4th year business management and philosophy student who is known for being not only cheeky but also wee. Tends to cry at musicals and can often be found going too hard on the dance floor.
Illustration & Graphics Coordinator
Florence is a fourth year English Literature/Film student who enjoys capturing both the epic and the ordinary with a camera. She thinks High School Musical 3 is a masterpiece and still has to physically restrain herself from throwing up the peace sign in photos...we’ve all got our faults hey!
Martina is an English Language and Literature student. Constantly trying to make people see the beauty of books, poetry, and the arts, you can find her by a big window reading a book - bonus point if a great view is involved. Beware: when approached she'll immediately talk to you about her last favourite book and her go-to coffee type
Sikhi. Plant hoarder. Animal Enthusiast. Human. She/They. International student studying International Relations, just trying to do her best.
Culture (Comment Pieces) Editor
Ruth is a third-year student studying history of art/theology. She is very godly and enjoys snooping around cathedrals. She can be seen in nice n sleazys wearing nothing but leopard print lingerie. Her favourite episode of The Simpsons is Homer vs. the 18th Amendment. The biggest lesson she has to teach is that "high-end culture" is not everything. She will do this through her knowledge of art and film.
Creative Workshop Director
Alice is an English Literature student in her final year. She writes poems, shoots film on grubby cameras and is fond of pigeons.
'Eden is a second year Geography and Politics student who's always got a camera at the ready (much to the annoyance of her friends). As well as photography, she's also passionate about reading, writing and cafe sitting.'
Julia is a fourth-year psychology student who has an unreciprocated love for cats. In her free time you can catch her surfing the web for vintage garms, cooking away some of her mama’s japanese recipes, or watching wholesome otter videos. This year will be all about applying her tech savvyness to add her flare to the GUM website.
