BCom graduate Julia Ayim named Black Grad 2023 valedictorian

Published: 12 May 2023

One of this year’s three Black Grad valedictorians, Julia Ayim (BCom’23) has just completed a Bachelor of Commerce specializing in Strategic Management and Organizational Behaviour at the Desautels Faculty of Management. She and fellow graduates were celebrated at the annual Black Grad gala on April 30, a sold-out event organized by the Black Students’ Network of McGill (BSN). The BSN's Vice-President Social shares how hearing from alumnus Sekou Coulibaly, former executive director at L’Oréal, at a career fair at her high school in Ghana helped cement her decision to apply to McGill University. “I could see myself being a part of McGill and studying in Montreal.” Next up, Ayim will be joining the McGill Master of Management in Analytics (MMA) as an Industry Liaison. Learn more about how stepping out of her comfort zone and pushing her boundaries despite self-doubt helped Ayim succeed.
