I am passionate about social enterprise, and a strong believer that it can provide an adaptable and sustainable solution to many of the problems our society faces today - both locally and globally.
This is a passion that I have followed in both my career and in my own time. I recently founded my own venture, UniHack, which is an organisation aiming to develop sustainable solutions to local needs by bringing together students, corporates, and community interest organisations through hackathons.
I am an active member of the Enactus UK Alumni, and currently use my experience (both from University as an Enactus student, and professionally) to mentor a number of Enactus teams across the UK. In this role I have been very fortunate to win a number of awards for my services, including the 2013 Enactus UK Alumni of the Year award, and an award in 2014 for 'Best Training Session'.
Previously, I worked as the Social Enterprise Manager for the national charity Student Hubs. Whilst there I oversaw the development of their social enterprise programme, and supported students and staff in its delivery. In addition to this, I was also responsible for creating and curating training for project incubation, and developing an in-house accelerator programme for student led projects.
