UA Alumni: Tiffany Tivasuradej
Tiffany was a Highly Commended Entrant in the Business category in 2015.
She studied her undergraduate degree at Durham University and earned a 1st class honours BSc in Biological Anthropology. It was definitely a very interesting subject!
Where do your interests lie?
Even after I left university, I still have a passion for advocating the practice of anthropology outside of academia, Thus I continue to advocate anthropology through thought leadership (e.g. writing articles, publishing podcasts, speaking at conferences). I also spend time experimenting with new ways to bake (cakes, bread etc.) when I’m not working!
Here you can read an article she wrote about applied anthropology and behavioural science in marketing. Click here to listen to a podcast she recently hosted about innovation through anthropology.
What are you doing now and what has happened since the award?
After the awards, I went on to study a postgraduate degree at Warwick University. I was awarded a MSc in Business & Marketing with distinction. Thereafter, I was fortunate to land an internship and a job as a strategist at Ogilvy, one of the best advertising agencies in the world.
Has receiving an award for your hard work helped?
I submitted an essay I wrote during my final year at Durham University to the Undergraduate Awards. It was a true honour to receive recognition for my work. I definitely think it boosted my confidence in what I did after I received the award. And of course, it’s a memorable achievement!
Why should students submit their work to UA?
Submitting your work shows that you are unafraid to try. Getting recognised for your work either as a runner up or winner shows that you can produce quality work in an innovative manner. Plus it looks great on your CV, so why not submit?
