Tom Williams – Editor@thesaint-online.com
Tom is a fourth-year International Relations student from Brighton. Having spent two years working for The Saint’s news section (the best section) – most recently as news editor, he now assists in content creation and general support across all sections of the paper. Tom survives on a purely caffeine-based diet. He doesn’t know what he would like to do after graduation, envies those who do, and wishes everyone would stop asking him.
Deputy Editor – Content
Annie is a second-year English, Spanish, and Italian student from Memphis, Tennessee. As news editor, she works to report on the stories that concern the St Andrews community accurately and without bias. When she’s not reporting for The Saint, you can find Annie crossing countries off her travel bucket list, planning events for Agnes Blackadder Hall, and taking long walks on the beach, or to ALDI.
Deputy Editor – Design
Laszlo is a fourth-year studying Film Studies and Comparative Literature in a joint degree. Born in Budapest and raised in rural Hungary, he grew up stacking his shelves with books and DVDs. As an avid film lover, he gladly grabs the camera to experiment with recording and editing. He joined The Saint when he saw an opportunity to help break down the binary between high culture and pop culture in writing. Besides his journalistic interests, he hopes to make feature films on a professional scale one day.

Sasha Veliko-Shapko – firstname.lastname@example.org
Sasha is a fourth-year Psychology student hailing from the great state of California. As the business manager, she ensures the paper has adequate funding to be printed. When she isn’t pestering local companies for advertisements, Sasha hopes to visit 100 countries (she’s at 62 now) before turning 25… and maybe have time to finish her degree in the process.

Seoras is a third-year History student from Aberdeenshire. He joined The Saint in first-year as deputy sports editor, before becoming editor of the section in second-year. He now runs the news section, where he is slowly realising that the content he puts out actually has an impact. When not taking the most niche modules possible (lately he’s found one on medieval shi’ite assassins), Seoras plays cricket and football as well as running HIGuys History on STAR Radio.
