When were you at Warwick?
2013 – 2014, MSc Supply Chain and Logistics Management at WMG and Mairi Macintyre was my dear supervisor.
Do you have any fond memories?
Indeed! My friends, housemates and classmates from all around the world, my demanding and funny teachers, the experience in elaborate all the endless post module assignments (PMAs) and of course, my supervisor Mairi for being so kind and patient with me.
Where did you live while you were at Warwick?
In Earlsdon, Coventry.
Were you a member of any societies?
I was member of Risk Management Society.
What are you doing now?
I’m Chief of Logistics Planning and Expediting in GyM S.A. the largest construction company in Peru.
Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?
Because I believe it would be a great experience for Peruvians that they can study in the University of Warwick that offers a different study method that Peruvian students are used to, and the opportunity of meeting people from all around the world will help them to understand and respect other cultures. Additionally, I thought I was the only Peruvian in studying at Warwick but this year I realized that we are more than 50, so I want to meet them in order to share experiences.
Have you been back to Warwick recently?
Yes, I have attended my graduation ceremony held in January 2015.
Anything else you care to add?
Yes, I would like to get in touch with other Warwick alumni and promote the good experience that we had at uni.
