Meet the new UKA Boston Chair: Natalya Orlando

Natalya Orlando

Where were you raised?

What made you decide to study at Kent?

I pursued my Master’s Degree in Political Strategy and Communication, which was only offered at a handful of universities worldwide.

What would you like to see the group achieve in the next few years? 

My co-chair, Scarlet, and I want to expand the Kent alumni network in the Boston area, connect with the Kent global alumni network, and encourage our Boston area chapter to get involved in local events and volunteer opportunities.

If you didn’t attend Kent how would your life now be different?

I would not have many of the wonderful Kent connections I have, would never have travelled the UK, as I did, nor would I have my Master’s Degree, which I am very proud of!


What was your earliest ambition?


What have you been up to since graduating?

I have worked extensively in issue, and candidate based campaigns, preside over the Boston Austrian Economics group, is a social media consultant, and currently work in the investment banking industry.

What advice would you give a new student at Kent?

Take advantage of everything Kent, and the lovely city of Canterbury offers!

Who or what inspires you?

Jesus Christ
