Ekene Moses - Business

Email Me: mosese@roehampton.ac.uk

 

Hello mate, Amb. Ekene Moses here, from Nigeria. I am currently doing my undergraduate program in Business Management, and one of the students BAME Ambassadors representing the University of Roehampton Business School.

 

Outside studies, I work in an SME property management company in Southeast London as a trainee manager - a role that has given me the opportunity to explore all parts of the city and different cultures and people that she inhibits.

 

I have held similar positions in the past as a part of students' representative to implement and achieve a common general wellbeing of all students back home in Nigeria. And my university life that started in Nigeria, part in Spain, and now in the UK - in which I did three different courses, I would say has also helped to enhance my learning awareness, resilience, and ability to work with people of different cultures and academic backgrounds.

 

In addition, I am very passionate about management, innovations, and strategy as a whole - and would like to pursue a career in 'Operations, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management' after studies.

 

Should you desire to get to know more about me, or the role, and/or to contribute or state a concern, please do not hesitate to get in touch as I will be looking forward to connecting with you

Hi, I am Cinthia Duran, the BAME Ambassador for the Arts Department at Roehampton University.

 

I am an international student from Ecuador currently completing the CHOREOMUNDUS International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage, which Roehampton is a part of.

 

I am passionate about dance as a medium for social justice activism and I aspire to work at the intersection of Academia and Dance practice, actively engaging my work with critical theoretical frameworks, including decolonial, feminist, and critical race theory.

 

As an undergraduate student I worked closely with staff and students committed to promoting institutional and curriculum change to ensure a better educational experience for BAME students (BIPOC, in the US context).

 

For this reason, I am very enthusiastic about the opportunity to engage with this necessary, impact-making work at Roehampton.
