Meet your 2021 Glass Editors

As we move into 2021, we thought we’d introduce ourselves! We are the Glass Editors for 2021, Emily Readman, Ella Brumm, Anahita Ebrahimi and Alexander Asher. We’re really excited to push forward into a new vision for Glass for 2021, with more accountability for your 2021 Guild, as well as bringing you campus news and a bunch of other cool content.  But, for now, here’s who we are! You’ll be hearing from us a lot in the new year, and we’d love to hear from you as well.

Emily Readman  

Hey all! I’m Em, and I’m a returning editor for 2021. I was a part of your 2020 team, and I’m really excited to be back. I’m in my final year of a Bachelor of Business and Fine Art. Something I was really excited to work on last year, but was unable to achieve because of COVID-19, was growing the campus culture of Glass with events and an open-door policy for our office. Touchwood, but it seems like that might be able to happen this year! Beyond facilitating events, I’m looking forward to growing the online site and bringing you important news about the Guild and QUT, as well as the broader university community discussion. I’m also committed to accountability within the QUT Guild, bringing you updates from the executive and NUS delegates and asking them all of your questions to keep them accountable. Next year, my work will be centralised around producing the content you want to see on the online site. As always, I’m open to questions and ideas about how to make Glass better, and I’m so excited to see where Glass goes this year. 

Ella Brumm 

Hi! I’m Ella and this is my first time being involved in the QUT Guild as an editor of the Glass magazine. I am in my third year of a Bachelor of Law and Justice. I am thrilled that I am now more involved with university life by joining Glass and social clubs on campus. This opportunity has helped me to meet new people and become more engaged with the intricacies of QUT. This is what I would love to incorporate more into Glass going forward; shedding light on issues that students should be aware of and greater accountability of the Guild and the university. I’m also excited to tap into my creative and journalistic side this year through conducting interviews with undergraduates, post-graduates and academic researchers at QUT. If there are any questions you have about the Guild or Glass, please don’t hesitate to ask! I look forward to seeing the continuous evolvement of Glass.   

Anahita Ebrahimi 

Hi everyone. I was one of your editors in 2020 and I’m stoked to say I’m returning in 2021This will be my final year in a Bachelor of Law and Creative IndustriesI’m really glad I get to spend my last year of university at Glasswhere I can continue reporting to students through values of transparency and accountability, whilst providing a space to showcase their incredible talent. My biggest focus will be broader engagement with faculties and ensuring we represent students of all factions at QUT. I’m also excited to be working in collaboration with your Guild Environmental officers to bring you their Eco-Blog. If you’ve ever felt like submitting an essay, a funny anecdote or a juicy thought-piece, send it through to us at and we’ll happily have a chat.  

 Alexander Asher  

G’day, I’m Alexander, and I’m joining the 2021 Glass team after doing some behind-the-scenes work with Glass in 2020. I’m a semi-recent UQ defector and former editor for Semper Floreat, looking to help the Guild’s student media expand. With Semper, I did a lot of parodies, accountability reports and student interest articles. This year, I’m looking to establish more of that at QUT. We’ve got a diverse talent pool from the CI faculty, and with your help, I’d love to harness that to create pieces that the entire student body can enjoy. Whether it be creative, analytical or political, I’ll gladly look over all of your submissions. 🙂 

See you online for the holidays and on-campus next semester!
