We Are Essex

Nik's story

"Don't leave something for tomorrow that you can do today."

My personal motto is, don’t leave something for tomorrow that you can do today. I’m currently working on a project around social media networks for students. I just started working on the first prototype. I hope it succeeds, because I think it will be really useful for students.

I’m inspired by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and how he created a social media platform that’s used by billions of people every day, but I think Facebook is a bit limited when it comes to providing features for students, so I want to fill that gap. I think there are more innovative and efficient ways out there to help students to connect with each other. One day, I’d love to be the CEO of my own company. I want to build software that allows me to reach out to people and change their lives for the better.

I love how at Essex you have everything you could possibly need to help you achieve. When I applied, Essex was the last university that I heard back from. My mother was pushing me to just accept another offer, but I had my heart set on coming to Essex – and when I did get the offer, I was over the moon! I didn’t hesitate or have any second thoughts; I just accepted right there and then.
