During her introduction she paid tribute to her former mentor, Professor Philip Cowley of the School of Politics and International Relations. In referring to Professor Cowley, Ms Muroki said: “He made me believe in myself. He made me believe that somebody who came to this country as a child, who was raised by a hardworking single mum and who was the only kid in the school photo who couldn’t afford a school uniform could achieve anything I wanted too.”
