Current student appointed as LU Speech Bubble Co-Ordinator

Andrew Antwi, student ambassador and current student at Loughborough University London has recently been appointed as the Co-Ordinator for the University’s speech bubble events, organised by LU Arts.

Andrew is currently studying MSc in Risk, Governance and International Management within the Institute for International Management, but has been influenced by music, spoken word and poetry from a young age.

Speaking of his creative experiences, Andrew said: “Having learnt the piano from a young age, I soon grew a significant interest in artistic performance. During my teens, this interest grew, and I immersed myself in spoken word and poetry. I have experience in events management during my time as an undergraduate, and I am now in the works of setting up a music production company with two friends.”

Encouraging students to learn, earn and thrive in their desired sector, the LU Arts team identified Andrew’s skills set and interests and concluded that he would be a perfect for the Speech Bubble Co-Ordinator role.
