A Kenyan man, Bradley Opere, has been elected student president at the University of North Carolina (UNC), which is ranked among the top 80 universities in the world by topuniversities.com.
Opere who is currently pursuing a double major in business and political science at UNC, got 53% of the overall votes cast in the polls held recently.
According to the African Leadership Academy of which Opere is an alumni, the lad has always been interested in politics. ALA further notes that Opere has mastered leadership traits and the ability to identify talent and foster collaboration among people. While at ALA, Opere was chairman of the student government where he was credited with writing the Academy’s inaugural Honor Council Constitution.
“As Dean, I had the opportunity to work closely with Bradley during his time as Chair of the ALA student government, and he left a powerful impression. I’m thrilled to see him continue to challenge himself at UNC to lead diverse communities and unite people from different backgrounds with a common purpose. I have no doubt that he will be an exceptional student body President at UNC-Chapel Hill.” Chris Bradford.
