Your contribution can take different forms: you can record the content yourself (show yourself sometimes) and/or you can edit video content received. 
  4. Video content creator: You will be creating videos (mainly Reels) for the EST. You will be expected to record yourself explaining different issues pertaining to the EU and the EST as an organisation.

These roles will require a commitment of 5-6 hours per week throughout the whole term.
