“I am here to serve, and I am eager to work.” – The Yuppie speaks to Harley Mallia

As you may well know, there is one post within KSU that requires an election; that of Culture and Entertainment Officer.  Last week we spoke to independent candidate Nicholas Martinelli; today we spoke to the candidate seeking election under SDM’s ticket; Harley Mallia.
What has motivated you to contest for a role within the Culture and Entertainment Office in KSU?

I’ve been involved in the sphere of culture and entertainment for quite a number of years now, and I’ve participated and organized numerous events in the past, most recently Students Fest. So when SDM approached me it felt natural that I would contest for that role. Both the SDM team and myself agreed that it would the office I’d feel most comfortable in.

Why do you think you are qualified for this role?

Like I said, culture and entertainment have always been close to my heart. This year, organizing students fest made me realize that I had a lot more to contribute. I wanted to do more. I wanted to channel my enthusiasm and create new ideas and initiatives. I think if I combine my knowledge of the sector with my will power and determination to work with the rest of the fantastic team of candidates SDM has proposed, the Culture and Entertainment Office is in for a great year of proposals and initiatives.

If elected, what are you going to bring to the table as Culture and Entertainment Officer?

First and foremost it is my duty to complete the proposals put forward in our electoral manifest. Secondly, we will continue to carry out and improve events that KSU holds on a yearly basis, and thirdly, I will be in constant dialogue and communication with students on campus to come up fresh ideas. It is important that all students come together and put forward initiatives they truly believe will attract students.

What message would you like to pass on to the student body?

 I am here to serve, and I am eager to work. Please stop me on quad, speak to me on Facebook. I want to meet new people and hear what they think. It is only through constructive criticism that we can improve. 
Massive thank you to Harley Mallia for speaking to us and answering our questions!  The election takes place throughout tomorrow; you can find the exact details for everything, HERE.
