We asked Darren
What are your top three songs?:
Chvrches – Empty Threat, Chainsmokers – Roses, Daft Punk – Burnin.
Tell us one thing about you that people might not know:
I played in a lot of bands during my younger years, getting gigs up in Derry and around there. I was bass, vocals and played guitar for a bit as well.
What would you say is your proudest moment at Staffs Uni so far?
The proudest moment of Staffs Uni is actually getting here, because it opened up all the opportunities I’ve had since.
If your house was on fire and you could only save three things, what would they be and why?
My Playstation 4, because I watch TV on it, listen to music on it, everything. My phone so I can ring someone. A box of beers because there’s nothing I can do about it so I might as well enjoy myself.
If you could be anyone for a day, living or dead, who would you be?
I’m going to go for the guy who’s tattooed on my arm: Jimi Hendrix.
If you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why?
An orange, because I really like them, they’re probably my favourite fruit.
What would your plan be in a zombie apocalypse?
I want to stay away from shopping malls, I want to stay away from schools, because they’re always infested in games and on TV. Then I’m going to find a ship and stay out in the waters.
If we are sitting here a year from now and celebrating a great year in office, what would you have hoped to have achieved?
There’s so much to achieve. I’d love to complete every promise on my manifesto, but that’s just a small part of this role. There’s going to be 101 other things coming up over the year, so many challenges and battles. Whatever students need, I can help.
