Arts Scholarships

We're delighted to announce our LU Arts scholars for this year! They'll each receive a tailored package of support and mentorship and will be working with us to promote the arts across the University.

Creative & Spoken Word: 

Ada Ughanwa

Ada has enjoyed creative writing ever since she was in year 11, after discovering her way with words when she wrote short stories in English. Her love for spoken word only stemmed when she attended the Victory Youth Group as, she was involved in a lot of activities which involved creating spoken word pieces or poems. She still attends the youth group as it has really benefited her and still benefits her. While at Loughborough University she attended one of the speech bubbles in her first year which she really enjoyed. For Ada, going to speech bubble was a huge step out of her comfort zone as, it was her first time performing in front of audience. Since then Ada has performed at the Round House and Wandsworth Council Chambers. She also took part in a master class with Joelle Taylor and Travis Alabanza over the summer. This year she attended the creative writing workshop whereby her writing skills were enhanced. This year she has been awarded with the Creative Writing/Spoken Word scholarship to enhance her creative writing skills.

Michael Asolo

Michael, having begun performing spoken word in 2018, has shown a flare for creative writing, poetry and their applications in campus life and beyond. With his undergraduate study in Chemical Engineering and dedication to development in expressive endeavours under the tutelage of Loughborough creative writing and spoken word scholarship, he hopes to become the epitome of a well-rounded Loughborough ambassador.
