Mary Ishabiyi

Hi, my name is Mary and I am a final year Commerce student! I was born in Nigeria, but have lived most of my life in Ireland. I have a passion for experiencing different cultures and meeting new people. My time in UCD so far has been incredibly fun and rewarding, from being part of the Africa Society Committee to winning cultural events held by the School of Business. In UCD, I love the multitude of events, societies and clubs to engage in!

I'm Des, I come from North Dublin. I speak English and Irish and am currently in final year Law with Politics. I adore both UCD and Dublin, and love to bring people to see all the college and city have to offer. I'm involved in the UCD Literary and Historical Society and Law, with debating in particular being a huge part of my time here. I am also really interested in current affairs, football, basketball, cycling and computing.
