Shirumisha Kwayu
Surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
Forget the former things: Do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up: Do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in wasteland. Break camps and advance!
About Me​
I'm a PhD student at Nottingham Trent University. My research topic examines the influence of social media on the fusion of strategies within organisation. I am also engaged with research on social media as an alternative civic space. This allows me to bring my Information System (IS) perspective on political science and development studies.
Previously, I worked as a management consultant at Bumaco Limited. I hold a Bachelor of Economics from Nottingham Trent University and Masters of Finance and Management from Loughborough University.
I am business oriented. I've worked on finance and retail service. Earlier, I engaged myself with startup business which gave me a lot of experience in building capital and maintaining growth. I run an Etsy Shop named after my mums brand Kwayu Fashion. On my shop I sell different handmade product from different parts of the world including Ghana and Tanzania
My passion is politics for development. I deeply believe education is a wheel for development in any society.
