Nigeria

Alumni Associate: Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, MSc Corporate Brand Management (2011)

What I’m doing now ….
I currently work for the Nigerian Government at The National Identity Management Commission as a Budget officer in the Finance & Accounts Department. The NIMC is an agency that registers & maintains the whole country's data base for citizens & legal Yusuf Baba-Ahmed1residents.

I am also currently the Secretary General of the KADA YOUTH FOUNDATION, a not for profit NGO which has the aim of propagating peaceful co-existence between the numerous ethnic & religious groups in Northern Nigeria. We also strive to see that we take as many less privileged children out of streets & enrol them in schools.

My best Brunel memory …
My favourite Brunel Memory was living in Isambard hall where I shared a flat with a Chinese, an Indian, French, a Thai & a Saudi citizen. We all became close friends and keep in touch to this day. I also have fond memories of the one-world week where I experienced different cultures and tasted cuisines from many countries.

What Brunel means to me …
Brunel University London means a lot to me. It is a citadel of academic excellence, where the social life is exemplary and where you meet and get to know people from all over the world. It was the best time of my entire academic life.

Why I volunteer as an Alumni Associate …
I volunteer as an Alumni associate because promoting Brunel is something that I derive pleasure in doing. I believe that people deserve to have as good an experience as I did at Brunel. I volunteer because I want to give back to an institution that gave me so much.

Alumni Associate: Inemesit Essien, MSc Occupational Health and Safety Management (2011)

My best Brunel Memory…
Family events which were organised for international students who came with their families. I came to Brunel with my two children.

What Brunel means to me…
A university that strives for excellence.

Why I volunteer as an Alumni Associate…
Having had a great student experience in Brunel, acting as an Alumni Associate will provide me with an opportunity to meet up with fellow graduates of Brunel University in a friendly and informal setting. It will also give me an opportunity to be of service to Brunel in what little way I can.
