Meet the Team

Avatar Giovanni Fortes

The search for better perspectives in life and the ambition for a more promising future at a professional level, took me to cross the ocean and embark on one of the most exciting adventures of my life. I became a citizen of the world after living 11 years in England in a multicultural society. As a student worker, such experience made him acquire independence, autonomy and the ability to face any challenge. I graduated in Business Management with a Master in Oil and Gas Management. With my experience we will find the key to your success!

I wanted to have something that would differentiate me from the rest, motivate me and complete me and what better if not one of the biggest tourist destinations and with the best education in the world? I graduated in International Tourism Management in London. My choice allowed me to have a unique experience that radically changed my life; I grew not only educationally but also professionally and especially personally. I have been working at OK Student for over 5 years, so I hope to continue helping students who are in the same situation, with the same doubts and fears I had, to take a big step towards their future!

Hi my name is Karo Itiveh, currently a masters student at Nottingham Trent University. I have over 4 years of experience in recruiting students to UK universities before joining this great team. The benefits of having an international degree cannot be over emphasized in terms of the boost it gives to your career and the opportunity to learn in a diversified environment which are some of the reasons I am currently studying here.

I love my job as a Student Advisor as it affords me the opportunity to provide appropriate support to students thereby placing them on the right career path and fulfilling their dreams. I am happy to help you with your application to study your chosen course in the UK and share my experiences with you.
