When were you at Warwick?
I first arrived at Warwick in September 2007 to begin an MA in Globalisation and Development in the department of Politics and International Studies (PAiS). I continued study at Warwick by enrolling in a PhD programme in PAiS from 2009. I completed my PhD and graduated in July 2013.
Who were you your tutors?
My PhD supervisors were Prof. Jan Aart Scholte and Prof. Peter Burnell.
Do you have any fond memories?
I have uncountable fond memories of my years at Warwick, both from life on and off campus. I enjoyed many shows and movies at the Arts Centre, SU, and the summer outdoor events around the campus. I spent a lot of my time in the Library, especially at the Research Exchange! And at the Chaplaincy.
Where did you live while you were at Warwick?
I first lived at Heronbank during my Masters year, then later in private lodgings around Cannon Park, Coventry and my final years were spent in Kenilworth, Warwickshire. I loved living in Kenilworth with its peaceful and beautiful ambience where I enjoyed many relaxing walks around Abbey fields....much needed especially in those final stressful months of thesis writing.
Were you a member of any societies?
I was a member of the Warwick Taekwondo Society, Belly Dance society and the Badminton Club. When i had the time I also enjoyed a few socials with the Arabic and Latin American Societies.
What are you doing now?
I work as a lecturer in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the Nigerian Turkish Nile University, Abuja
Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?
I completely enjoyed my experience at Warwick and I want to stay connected with the university and be able to share these memories with fellow alumni, build new networks with like-minded fellow Warwick graduates, and support any prospective Warwick students.
Have you been back to Warwick recently?
I visit Warwick as often as possible, at least two or three times a year. I have many friends who are currently still studying or working at Warwick and I always look forward to being back on campus.
