Victor Enendu

It’s graduation season again and as usual we are having tales of outstanding Africans who made their mark in various schools. Today, I present to you Victor Enendu.

This week, he graduated from the University of Leeds, United Kingdom from the school of Mechanical Engineering. Not only that, he also received the Simon Vicker’s award.  Simon Vickers Award is awarded to the student, undergraduate or postgraduate, who has contributed most to student life in the department during the academic year.

As a student, Victor Enendu held the following roles,

  1. Course Representative for Aeronautical & Aerospace Engineering
  2. Chairman for Mechanical Engineering student/staff Forum
  3. Equality and Inclusion Student Representative, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Taking to his LinkedIn page, Victor says “ I did not imagine that I will be leaving the University with my name carved in the Plaque at my department. Initially, I was only trying to gain and improve on my leadership, communication, team working and managerial skills, so with commitment and dedication I discovered that I would not just be a regular student with an only degree.

Victor also encourages other students especially of African heritage to get involved in leadership roles as they pursue their degrees.

Congratulations Victor! The Sky is your starting point!
