Name: Miss A Patel (Editor-In-Chief)

 

Favourite animal and why?

The peacock because it is a beautiful bird and I like to have a birds-eye view on everything that is happening in our Press Gang meetings! (Just in case, any of you are confused by the above picture, I do know that's an African Grey parrot on my arm and not a peacock!)

My first name is in the word organisation!
