Edmilson Angelo’s Registered Charity- Change 1’s Life

“We can all be the change we want to see in the world”, is the mantra of Change 1s Life founder Edmilson Angelo.

However a recent article from The Independent, presenting results from a recent survey conducted by ‘Emolument.com’, defies the preconceptions that tend to be held when it comes to graduate employment prospects. Data from over 26,000 former students was analysed to determine which universities produced the highest ratio of graduates who have gone on to become chief executives, chief technology officers, or partners.
