“My Future Career Aspirations Have Been Realised”

At the end of the course, I was selected to participate in an entrepreneurship course at Babson College, USA, to develop my business idea regarding climate change mitigation. This course was funded by a scholarship from Santander and the University of Kent. My future career aspirations are to become a green entrepreneur and work for an environmental agency.”
