And The Winner Is… Hannah Mason

By Joe Young - Deputy Culture Editor

Returning Media Officer and Pluto Editor-in-Chief Hannah Mason

The first member of the Student Affairs Committee we’ve had the delight of interviewing is re-elected Media Officer and Pluto Editor-in-Chief Hannah Mason.


How do you feel about winning?

I’m over the moon! I’m so happy to be staying for another year and I’m still not over the excitement of it all.

What is your first priority in your role?

Having done it for a year now I’ve experienced both the good and less good things this year. There’s some big changes coming to student media which will hopefully excite students enough to get them involved! Implementing these changes is key to how student media will be for not just the next year, but for the next few.

How will you know if you’ve succeeded?

When I do leave in July 2017, I want to be able to walk away from student media with it making great content, loads of volunteers and people talking about it! There’s always the end of year national awards too, which would be nice. But when it comes to it, I think for me, success (on a cheesy note) is watching a group of volunteers grow and to see how much they improve over time.

Do you have anything to say to students who are interested in getting involved in Student Media, but aren’t quite sure how?

Come and have a chat to me! Or you can grab me on Facebook or Twitter. Have a look at the platforms and get a feel for what they’re about. Together we can figure out what kind of media volunteering you want to be doing or what you want to learn. But honesty, being involved with student media was one of the best things I did at uni and it’s about grabbing the opportunities while you can!

If you want to get in contact with Hannah, you can do so on Facebook, @UCLanSUMedia on Twitter, by email at sumedia@uclan.ac.uk, or by phone on 01772 89 4891.
