My journey with entrepreneurship and business started back in 2006 when I enrolled as an undergraduate student majoring in Business studies. I graduated from Loughborough University with a distinction and highest honours in 2010, whereby I majored in Management and Business. I did study a wide array of subjects pertaining to business start-up including strategic management, economics, political sciences, economics, psychology, human resources and marketing.
Academia is my passion as teaching and researching are interwoven in the fabric of my being.
