Oxford ACS Elects Executives for 2017/18The Oxford African and Caribbean Society (ACS) has elected an executive committee for the 2017/18 academic year. The ACS is a student-run society at the University of Oxford who are committed to exploring, promoting and celebrating African and Caribbean culture within The University.
The new executives are Taiwo Ava Oyebola, Joshua Tulloch, Georgina Ramsay, and Kareem Belo-Osagie
Taiwo Ava Oyebola is a second year Classicist studying at Wadham College.
For this year, the bedrock of all ACS’ activities can be summarised by CEMENT AND GROWTH – ACS is committed to cementing the robust structures and foundations established by the previous committee, ensuring that this growth continues in order to support their students, whether this is through providing a diverse range of career opportunities, or creating a forum which allows members to use their different cultural backgrounds to express themselves.
Joshua Tulloch is in his second year studying PPE at Lady Margaret Hall.
As a passionate advocate for social justice and education reform, he is committed to using the ACS platform to further shed light on and begin to break down the social and institutional barriers that prevent those of Afro-Caribbean descent from realising their full academic potential. He relishes the chance to promote and encourage engagement with the rich heritage of African culture in the wider Oxford community.
Georgina Ramsay is a second year English and French student at The Queen’s College.
As former Junior Access & Outreach Officer for the ACS, she is passionate about dispelling myths which might deter students of African and Caribbean heritage from applying to university. She is committed to celebrating African and Caribbean culture within the University of Oxford.
Kareem Belo-Osagie is a second year Mathematics and Computer Science student at Worcester College.
As a previous Junior Events Officer and proud Nigerian, he is dedicated to creating a space in which African and Caribbean culture can thrive in Oxford. In addition, he is driven by his passion for education to empower students of Afro-Caribbean heritage and instil in them a lifelong love of learning.
