Member’s Corner takes a closer look at D.I.S.S Alumni’s 200 members. This week features Cynthia Uduma, from Class of 2012.
How would you describe yourself?
I am Cynthia; a sociable, adventurous and fun-loving person. Although I seem introverted to people who don’t know me, I am motivated and passionate about things I care about.
I studied Information and Communication Engineering at Covenant University, but I’m currently working as a Business Development Manager.
I have the passion of seeing businesses succeed, especially small and medium scale enterprises in Nigeria. My passion is reflected in every project I handle and I spare no energy when working to grow a business.
I needed a company with a global view who were invested in employee welfare and development. I also wanted a place I could add value and a team of energetic people who could challenge me intellectually.
I remember being flogged on my birthday in JS2 while my mother was waiting downstairs with birthday goodies. I wanted to show her the bruises on my palm but she had gone by the time I got to the reception.
I want to be at a point where I am more equipped to help people achieve their business goals.
I am proud of the level of growth and self awareness I have attained. I am also proud that I am highly sought after in my field.
I am passionate about women and child welfare, mental health and education.
