BREAKING: These Are The People Running to Edit Honi Soit
By Pulp Goss
We are on the verge of the second wave of elections here at USYD as the two tickets competing for the Honi editorship have been solidified. So, who better to break this news than yours truly?
The two tickets running this year are CREAM and FIT. And since you’re dying to know who they are, here is a rundown of all the people running.
The two tickets have very different make ups. FIT is looking like the left ticket, with some Grassroots members and others that are known leftists on campus. CREAM on the other hand presents a mixture of people from all political backgrounds.
Ranuka Tandan – Ranuka has been active with Honi being a reporter and artist in 2018/19. She has contributed to The Guardian Australia, Pulp Media, and was a Sub-editor for Women’s Honi in 2017.
Nina Dillon Britton – Nina has been a reporter for Honi since 2016, she is the Editor in Chief of Dissent Journal and was the Director for Student Publications for the SRC in 2017. She was a Chancellor’s Award Recipient (2016). She was a Sexual Harassment Officer in 2017. She is one of two current members of Grassroots currently running on the Fit ticket.
Momoko Metham – A reporter for Honi Soit since 2018 Momoko is an Arts student in Media and Communications. She is a Digital Content Manager (Online Blog Editor), General Editor for ARNA Literary Journal (2019) and won the Honi Soit 'Best First-Timer' Award (for writing) in 2018. She is a published writer for Archer Magazine. She has won the Honi Soit 'Best of Art' Award (2017). She hasn’t been too involved in the Stupol hack life before, so her political affiliations remain more opaque than some of the others. Fit assures us that everyone is left.
Madeline Ward – Et tu brute. Our very own Pulp editor will be conflicting off these Honi elections due to her involvement in this ticket. Maddy has written for the Guardian, Overland, and SMH. Maddy was the SRC Women’s Officer in 2018 and is Grassroots aligned.
