When were you at Warwick?
I attended at the University of Warwick from September 2005 to June 2008
What did you study?
I studied the Bachelors of Laws (LLB) course (2005-2008)
Who were you your tutors?
I can recall John McEldowney (EU LAW) and Alan C Neal (Employment Law)-I still use his text book on Employment Law.
Do you have any fond memories?
I still remember having to go party at Sugar (nightclub) in Leamington Spa..Some of the best Tuesday night outs!
Where did you live while you were at Warwick?
I lived at Claycroft during my first year.
Were you a member of any societies?
I was a member of the Afro-Caribbean society
What are you doing now?
I am currently a practising advocate at Mkono & Co Advocates and a licensed investment advisor (fund manager) at Vervet Global Limited. I also sit on the board of the American Chamber of Commerce as the Director of Development.
Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?
I wanted to become an alumni ambassador mainly because of the fact that I kept bumping into people that went to Warwick University including some senior government officials that went in the 70’s/ 90’s and we had no club to which we could catch up and build our own network. I believe this is a great opportunity to do that and sell the university to our peers and the Tanzanian community at large.
Anything else you care to add?
I believe that Warwick is one of the best universities in the world. The story is not sold as loudly as it should in Tanzania. I hope to work closely with the alumni office to push the agenda to local high schools and universities.
