On June 2 we cheered on our 2022 graduates as they crossed the stage in person for the first time since 2019. Meet some of them here:

Mona Agada, a black man with a short beard and moustache, sits on a sofa in the lobby of the Rowe building with his arms resting on his knees and hands clasped. He is wearing a white buttoned shirt and jeans. His medium-length locs are gathered into a high ponytail.Seeing it through

Enemona Agada was attracted to the Bachelor of Management program because he was curious about how businesses work. When juggling more than one job on top of a full course load proved challenging, he sought and got the help he needed to turn it around.

Kayler Mutyabule, a Black woman with her long hair pulled back, stands in front of a black wall with the Dalhousie crest on it. She is wearing a black graduation robe with a brightly coloured kente sash overtop of a pink blazer and black pants with sparkly earrings and hair clips. She holds her diploma and a bouquet of pink flowers, and she is smiling at the camera.Knowing her worth

During her time in the Commerce Co-op program, Kayler Mutyabule used her experience to help make the new Supply Chain and Logistics Management major a place where all students could see themselves.

Francesca Hawkes, a white woman with long dark blonde hair smiles at the camera. She is wearing a blue sweater and a necklace with interlocking circles. She is sitting in front of some trees with a city skyline in the background.Building on passion

Francesca Hawkes brought her passion for sustainability to the Corporate Residency MBA program, where she developed the business acumen to inspire and implement change in corporations.

Rebecca Osamudiame, a Black woman with medium-length hair, stands next to a balcony in the Rowe building. She is wearing a white, blue and beige dress and gold hoop earrings. In one arm, she holds her son, a Black toddler wearing jeans and a blue shirt. She holds his hand with her free arm, and they both look at the camera, smiling.Taking it further

Rebecca Osamudiame came to the Master of Science in Business program because she wanted a new challenge. Her professors helped her hone her research skills and push further to find a thesis topic she was passionate about.

Poppy Riddle, a white woman with long grey hair that falls over one shoulder, smiles at the camera with her hands clasped in front of her. She is wearing a long floral dress and glasses.Finding what she needs

She is wearing a floral top and glasses, and smiling at the camera with one arm rested on the back of the armchair in front of her. Finding the right path
