Q1: Why did you choose to study at LCU?
I graduated from Lead City International School, (LCIS), Jericho. LCIS offers a seamless progression to Lead City University for all her alumni and the University gives all LCIS alumni a tuition fee rebate. As the best graduating student in my set, the University offered me a full tuition scholarship and that made the choice of LCU very easy!
Q2: What is your favorite memory of LCU; a class, a lecturer, an activity or an experience?
It's hard to choose just one since as a Mass Communication student, I had so many practicals from designing adverts to handling radio and TV shows to binding and publishing books. All of these activities and classes together make very fond memories.
Q3: What have you done since graduating from LCU?
Nothing yet! However, presently, I am interning with the University as a Digital Marketing Intern.
Q4: What is your current job role? And what does it involve?
As a Digital Marketing Intern, I design social media graphics for various campaigns, post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and also make designs for promotional print media. I also voice radio adverts for the university.
Q5: How did your education at LCU help you get to where you are now?
LCU showed in practical ways how important it is to be self-reliant and not wait for anyone to do things for you. The education I received definitely made me a stronger and more independent individual. I am also very proactive in my outlook.
Q6: What advice would you give to prospective students of LCU?
I always tell people that you need to come and experience LCU yourself! The environment is conducive, the lecturers are knowledgeable and passionate, the opportunities are endless.
Q7: What advice would you give to LCU’s current students?
Take advantage of every single programmme, course and learning experience the school provides. Don't think they aren't useful because you get knowledge from every opportunity.
Q8: Mention one or two of your proudest professional or personal accomplishments since graduating from LCU.
I graduated as the overall Best Graduating Student with a CGPA of 4.94. I am now in McKinsey's Forward Programme, and I work part-time with Tech4Her, a nonprofit organization that teaches girls STEAM skills.
Q9: If you had it to do all over again, would you still choose LCU?
I would choose LCU, but I think I would come in with a better mindset. I thought it would be easy, especially as it's a private university, but LCU really tests your knowledge and personality, helping you become a better person overall. If I had it to do all over, with or without the tuition rebate, I will choose LCU!
Q10: If the opportunity presents itself, will you be happy to support the University or other LCU Alumni?
Yes, I would.
