PRO: Orla McDermott
I’m Orla, I’m a third year student in English and New Media, and I’m your PRO for this semester. What does that mean? Well I’ll be the annoying one sending you weekly emails to keep you in the loop about what’s happening in our fabulous society and the one behind the camera showing you all the awesome things we do via social media (@outinul on all platforms #plug)!
I joined this society in first year, newly out and coming from a fairly rural area where no one else was I was terrified and intimidated when I first joined such a loud, proud, open society, because I’d never experienced something like it before, but it didn’t take long to become one of them! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and that’s what I love most about this society! I joined committee as First Year Rep, and this is my second semester as PRO, and I just love showing off how great we are! This amazing society has shaped my college life, it’s given me a sense of belonging and freedom and Queer hangouts are my favourite part of every week!
If you have any questions about the society or life, or just need a friend or someone to walk to meetings with (I know it can be intimidating to go on your own at first but trust me you won’t regret it!) please feel free to drop me a message on Facebook, or wherever else you find me, I love making new friends!
