Congratulations to Krushma Bosamia, of WMG Academy for Young Engineers, one of our two Winners of the Coventry & Warwickshire Woman Who…Rising Star Award 2016.

The Judges selected Krushma as one of the Rising Star Winners as she is in a traditionally male dominated world and following an alternative route of education.  We wish her well.

Alsters Kelley LogoKrushma joined WMG Academy for Young Engineers in 2014 making the conscious decision to leave her old school and enter a newly created education establishment specifically designed to support the creation of young engineers. This was a brave decision for a 14 year old girl who left her local school and who now travels across the city to achieve her education. 80% of students at WMG are boys; Krushma is certainly in the minority as a woman in engineering. From outset, it was very clear that Krushma was fixed not just on achieving high grades but more importantly on taking every opportunity to excel. She regularly acts as an ambassador for the academy and explains to potential students what life at WMG is like. Her commitment to academic excellence is outstanding.

Congratulations Krushma
