Miriam discusses her time as first female Captain of School
We were delighted to have Miriam Lwanga (OKS, Walpole 1990-95) deliver a talk about her experiences at King’s, including her time as the first female Captain of School, and subsequent career.
Even after 21 years of working in PR, marketing, and communications, Miriam still attributes her success and accomplishments to her early beginnings as part of the first cohort of Shell girls and being the first female Captain of School at King’s. During this time, Miriam learned the importance of leadership, lending a sympathetic ear and most importantly, she acquired the skills to become an effective communicator.
Today, Miriam works for UNICEF Uganda as a Communication for Development (C4D) Specialist and enjoys travelling, music and classic films. She has also begun a new journey in executive producing an online talk show as well as investing and creating opportunities for Ugandan female entrepreneurs.
Our next King’s Talk will take place next Wednesday the 18th of November when Pip Durell (OKS, Broughton 2005-10) presents ‘The Changing Face of the Fashion Industry: Eco brand building and is there such thing as a sustainable fashion brand?’
