Pia is a third year Criminology student. When she’s not angry at the patriarchy, she’s sad about the reality of poverty in our inner city. She spends the majority of her time researching, frowning, and purchasing dark lipsticks on the internet.
If you’re looking to pay for club funds, look for the very stoic looking disappointed silver haired short person with the cash box and you’ve successfully found Pia.
