Black History Month – Diverse Voices: Minority Ethnic Alumni Panel

19th Oct 2021, 4:00pm - 5:10pm

Online

As part of our Black History Month programme three Edge Hill alumni – Ngunan Adamu, Claire Beerjeraz and Jay Chambers – will be taking part in Diverse Voices: Minority Ethnic Alumni Panel, a roundtable discussion about the lived experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students.

The three alumni will be talking about their lives after University and their careers working in the arts, psychology, business and radio. As well as discussing their achievements they will reflect on their experiences of jobhunting and the workplace while navigating personal challenges. Those booked will be emailed a week in advance of the event and invited to submit their questions to us. 

Ngunan Adamu studied a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and Training back in 2013. She is currently the presenter of Upfront, a Black magazine show on BBC Radio Merseyside, and an entrepreneur running iwoman, a global peer to peer organisation built by women for women.

 

Claire Beerjeraz is currently studying a Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling – her research examines on how arts and creative art therapies can heal racial trauma. Alongside her studies Claire works full-time as a Creative Children’s Psychological Therapist with YPAS.

 

J Chambers graduated with a degree in Film and Television. He works as a reggae musician, hip-hop artist, poet and lecturer. He regularly plays to live audiences all over the UK but has also used his degree to work with the BBC, Sky and Marcus Rashford.
