Manifestos for Publicity Officer
Amyrose Dempsey and Csilla Merenyi are running for Publicity Officer.
Amyrose Dempsey’s manifesto:
My name is Amyrose Dempsey and i am a second year fine art student, and i belong to many societies including this one. I would like to put myself forward for publicity officer because i am very interested in publicity, and i love this society so it goes hand in hand really.
I feel that i would do a great job and i would have so much fun doing it. I would like to do many things to promote the society. I would like to promote via Pugwash, with small inserts about the society and what we get upto, also i would like to arrange an exhibition so that we can show portsmouth what we can do!!
This year i was Head of Design for Pugwash magazine, publicity officer for Pagan society and vice president of MIG soc. Whilst publicity officer of Pagan society, i liased with all of the other faith societies and helped arrange the faith mixer, along with integrating meetings with them all. Holding these positions helped me make friends, and also helped me step outside the box, it was a new experience that i enjoyed and i would like to enjoy again.
I think you should vote for me because i would do a great job, i love to get involved and i would love for you guys to give me a chance.
Csilla Merenyi’s manifesto:
I’m a Psychology student at the University of Portsmouth and I’m very keen on amateur photography.
My wish is to become a Publicity Officer at the university’s PhotoSoc as I really have enjoyed my first year being a part of this group and I wouldn’t want the society to stop running. I have many ideas how our society could be advertised and I also know why people would be interested in joining us – photography helps you not only to capture your best moments but also to learn more about technology or even art. Many people are lurking around university focusing only on their studies or being lost as a fresher and I would love to reach out to them offering this creative way to make new friends.
As a ’psychologist’ I would definitely bring my knowledge of connecting people to the society. I love spotting the ‘outcasts’ and engaging in conversations with them so they would feel more confident to join group activities.
I haven’t got any experience in advertising but I have been fortunate enough to be on Hungarian television twice as a child. My most recent job was to work as a cashier during the summer of 2009 which was a result of being a waitress at the same tea house during the summer of 2008 in Hungary. In 2007, I worked as a marketing assisstant during the summer holiday, which helped me to develop cooperational skills and let experience life in a real office environment.
People should vote for me because I tend to be very creative and passionate when I feel that someone is counting on me; when I feel I have the power to change things for the better. I think communication is a key to any kind of progress in life and I enjoy every kinds of it from a casual chat with mates to sending a message through a metaphor in literature or art. I think advertising the Film and Photo Society would be the greatest way to connect like-minded people.
