Natasha was the first female coach in the UK to work in semi-professional men’s football.

Rosaliyo Samuel
Mechanical Engineering 2017, ARU
When she was younger, she felt the need to justify her interest in engineering. Ever since she was in school back in India, she’s always loved playing with mechanical equipment and would disassemble and reassemble things as a hobby. She knew engineering was the career for her, but she was all to aware of the misconception that engineering is a career path for men, so she felt she had to explain herself and her ambitions.
 
Aneela Rose
Business Studies 1995, ARU
In 2018 Aneela represented Team GB in the AWPC World Powerlifting Championships and won first place in her class to become a 2018 World Powerlifting Champion, and in 2019 became a British record holder in the Deadlift and Squat. Aneela is the Founder and PR Director of Rose Media Group, a specialist technical PR agency working mainly within the manufacturing and engineering sectors.
