In January 2018, we launched our very first campaign #WhoAmI, around our Flybery Women community. The aim of the campaign was not only to grow the community but also the awareness of the platform amongst active women. In the second of our three-part series of blogs discussing our #WhoAmI campaign, we look a little closer at the story, the people, and the creative, behind the campaign.

In January 2018, we launched our very first campaign #WhoAmI, around our Flybery Women community. The aim of the campaign was not only to grow the community but also the awareness of the platform amongst active women. We’ve written a series of short blogs which take you through building our campaign from idea, to engaging the community, and the results we saw (spoiler - they were pretty good). Hopefully, this might be of use to some of you, particularly those on the MSc Entrepreneurship, who are embarking on your own start-up journey.

Proud to be part of UCL MSc Finance?

When I introduce myself as an UCL MSc Finance student, I clearly feel external admiration because of the reputation of UCL and competitive candidate selection in the programme. But what about myself?

After two terms, I would say yes as I learn with talents, gain from opportunities, and grow stronger for my early career. The small class size makes me truly feel that I am cared about in the group, and everyone gets the chance to shine! I hope my experience in this new-born programme will help you learn more about it!

Having spent several months studying at University College London, I feel obliged to give the world an update on how UCL truly is. Aside from providing a vast experience, I was surprised to see the level of diversity in the student community. I have never seen such diversity in one area, and did not expect to learn so much from students that represent 80 different countries. In fact, some students are seen working 12-13 hours after class, to deliver their very best in coursework and projects. If that does not count as immense dedication, I don’t know what does!

I am a student currently in my third year of my BSc Information Management for Business degree at UCL’s School of Management and I work part-time (though more often than not it feels like full-time!) as a Business Associate at True AI - a London-based start-up researching and commercialising conversational software using deep learning AI.
