Dear Advocate readers,

Welcome to the spring/summer 2015 edition of Advocate Magazine! We would like to thank all of our sponsors sincerely for their on going support and for allowing us to produce this magazine.

Writing this editorial is bittersweet as it marks the end of my fourth year working on this magazine. As such, it has been an important and constant part of my university experience, from which I have gained a great deal. I would like to extend my appreciation to everyone from Advocate, past and present, for their contributions, for helping to teach one another, and for developing the magazine into a nurturing society.

My time as President has been rewarding and challenging, and every step along the way I have been supported by my amazing Vice Presidents, and wonderful friends, Victoria Rowley and Nikhita Saggu. You are both very much appreciated. I would also like to thank the rest of my wonderful team for all your work and enthusiasm!

I shall take this opportunity to welcome Trina Tan as Advocate President for 2015/16 and wish her and her team an excellent year. I have no doubt you will do wonderfully and continue to improve the magazine and society.

Happy end of year and best wishes to all, particularly to those going abroad and to the graduating year with their onwards adventures.

Lauren Turner
