Sliding into VUWSA President Marlon Drake’s DM’s

Sash, our illustrious News Editor, interviewed Marlon Drake, VUWSA President, this week, through the unorthodox method of sliding into the President’s Instagram DMs.

  1. What do you think your term as VUWSA President will be remembered for?

Ask me again at the end of the year.

  1. What do you think your term as VUWSA President will be memed for?

The meme maketh the man, and the people maketh the meme.

  1. Are you worried about living in the shadow of Rory’s moustache?

Rory’s half my size, I’m not in the shade.

  1. Fuck Marry Kill: Judith Collins, Amy Adams, Simon Bridges

Fuck em all.

  1. Most outrageous thing you’ve spent course related costs on?

A smoothie from The Lab.

  1. Best and worst courses you’ve taken at uni?

I work with a lot of academics and my communications manager has advised me to provide no comment on this matter.

  1. Can you send me a screenshot of your tinder profile right now?

I don’t have a tinder follow me on Instagram @marlondrake and get in my DMs, Sasha you know the way.

  1. Thoughts on Max Key’s cover of Havana?

The way the slightly out of time DnB is mixed into the track is a clear and utterly genius representation of his father’s untimely departure from the messy world of politics (John, we miss you.) Max, you are the key to my heart. Keep up the good work mate xxx


Marlon has asked that all further media communications to VUWSA be channelled through VUWSA’s Communications Manager.
