Lectures, talks and seminars
After Essex celebrates the journeys and accomplishments of our diverse and inspiring alumni around the globe.
‘Scary, fun and empowering’ are some of the words that Amma Frimpong (MSc Adult Nursing, 2020) uses to describe her experience of working on the frontline in the NHS.
Amma now works as a district nurse and, alongside life as a busy mum, dedicates her spare time to running an NGO which provides ex-library books to school children in Ghana. Her tireless work and passion for social justice, both inside and outside of nursing, earned her the highly regarded Mary Seacole Award for Outstanding Contribution to Diversity and Inclusion in the Student Nursing Times Awards.
Amma’s journey into nursing was filled with a continuous desire to help and educate those around her, and there’s something we can all take from her outlook on life.
With an infectiously positive attitude and a passion for helping others, Amma's story is one from the countless inspiring Essex alumni working on the frontline.
Please join Amma as she chats to Professor Victoria Joffe, Dean of the School of Health and Social Care.
