Nataliey Bitature, a Ugandan social entrepreneur, has been awarded an honorary doctorate degree by the Keele University in United Kingdom.
“It’s been quite a journey but I am so humbled and honoured to be receiving my very own honorary doctorate,” Nataliey said on Thursday.
The first ceremony was presided over by the Vice Chancellor Professor Trevor Macmillan who also awarded Nataliey, the daughter to Ibanda tycoon Patrick Bitature.
“Congratulations to Keele alumna Nataliey Bitature on receiving your Honorary Doctorate at this year’s Keele Graduation ceremony!” the university management said.
“We are delighted to welcome you back and celebrate your outstanding achievements.”
In her turn, Nataliey said Keele equipped her with the tools to investigate and navigate her path to purpose.
“I am honoured to share in this special day at Keele as I look forward,” she noted.
She added: “We cannot change the world without being the change. We must all do our part.”
She earned her undergraduate degree in Business Management and Education Studies at Keele University from 2010- 2013.
In 2014, Nataliey then joined the London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) for Emerging Leaders Programme which lasted four months and subsequently obtained a Master’s in Social Entrepreneurship at Hult International Business School (from 2015 – 2016).
An executive, currently serving as CEO of Energrow, she was named in the Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2015.
