Editorial team


Jonathan Bucks – [email protected]Jonathan Bucks (circle)

Jonathan joined The Saint’s news team in his first year, going on to edit the section the following year. After a year of highs, lows, a Guardian student media award nomination, and a significant amount of hair loss and increased blood pressure, he decided to pack it all in for a taste of Parisian life. Yet not even the City of Lights could keep him away from The Saint and he found himself back in its warm embrace for his fourth and final year. He tweets @jonathanbucks.


Deputy editor (print)

Mina Omar – [email protected]

As a first year, Mina was more than a little nervous to take on the role of deputy editor on The Saint’s editorial team. However, her eye for detail, love for design and ability to operate with very little sleep have helped her adjust to the responsibility the role involves. Coming to Scotland from London, Mina has had quite the international upbringing and has lived in Pakistan, New York and Dubai. She couldn’t be happier that she decided to get involved with The Saint so early on and is excited to see what the next few years will bring. You can follow her on Twitter at @minaomar_7

News editor

Rachael Miller – [email protected]Rachael Miller (circle)

Rachael is a second year English and modern history student. Originally hailing from the west coast of Scotland, she is somewhat of an endangered species in St Andrews. Having spent her first year as The Saint‘s University correspondent – writing about exciting things like funding and staff strikes – she took on the role of news editor in a moment of madness. Always on the lookout for a good story, she is never without a book and is dangerously addicted to caffeine. You can follow on Twitter as she struggles through life @ram_51 or for more serious updates on the latest news @thesaint_news.

    Peon Icon: feminism – a male perspective

    In many ways, sexism and gender inequality are like a juicy pair of 38-Ds: they’re big, hard to control, draw plenty of attention, and require a lot of pressure to keep them in check. But through the hard work and self-reflection of our society in recent years, they have been wrangled. Sexism and gender...
