Why did you choose to study at UEL?
I was transitioning over to Science from my first degree in Computer Science, which was in Engineering and didn’t wish to wait for another year and UEL accommodated my need at the time.

What is your one special memory of your time at UEL?
My one special memory is on the professors I met that I stay in touch with to this date. Prof. Seed, Dr. Meah, Dr. Lesley and many others that forever changed my life.

What have you done since graduating from UEL?
I turned my business into a successful one that helped me achieve the goal of becoming a millionaire before 30. I achieved my dream of becoming a doctor and also passed the US medical licence exam.

What is your current job role? And what does it involve?
Becoming a doctor is a challenging task. Becoming one in the middle of a pandemic is even harder.

How did UEL help you get to where you are now?
It paved the way and made me realise what my strengths were and because of that, I managed to achieve all my dreams.

What advice would you give your younger self?
Always trust yourself, don’t let other people's opinion of what they perceive you as ever discourage you of becoming the person you are going to be.

What advice would you give to UEL current students preparing to graduate?
Never settle, nothing is impossible. I was told many times to give up, to take the easier way, I never did. Took me 11 years, but I finally got where I wanted to get to.

Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know:
I would but then I would have to charge you. Jokes aside, I love gaming and I’m pretty good at it.

If you were to do it all again, would you still choose UEL?
100% without any doubt. Shoutout to Dr. Smyth for believing in me when others failed to see the potential.
