What is your favourite thing about Leeds?
There are international supermarkets where I can buy some of the food I eat from back home in Botswana and would not find in a conventional supermarket, as well as entertainment venues that play my local music. Leeds is now my home away from home. Given how compact Leeds is, I never spend too much money on transport, I just walk.
What is your favourite thing about the University of Leeds?
My favourite thing about the University of Leeds is the opportunity to network with the different employers who come into the School every week thanks to the strong links the University has with these employers. This for me is very important as I have the opportunity to ask employers what exactly they look for in their candidates and work on becoming that ‘ideal’ candidate.
What is your favourite thing about your course?
My favourite thing about the course was getting to be involved in a group project where we had to run a virtual business as a retailer of sports equipment in South East Asia. It was such a great experience to put my theoretical knowledge into practice and see how our decisions impacted our business performance. It was really fun yet very competitive as well, which added a real life element to the competition.
