Supermodel becomes Adopt an Intern patron


0 Eunice Olumide has a portfolio of businesses involved in, among others, art, publishing and film Adopt An Intern has announced the appointmen­t of Scots supermodel Eunice Olumide as patron.

The move comes in the wake of Scottish Government-supported conference­s, in Glasgow and Edinburgh, targeting return-to-work opportunit­ies for black, minority and ethnic women, where Olumide has been the keynote speaker.

Olumide, recognised in the honours list with an MBE earlier this year, has a portfolio of businesses involved in art, publishing, film, television and her own clothing and accessorie­s range using materials sourced from poor parts of Africa and India.

Her role as patron will involve her in the support of further Adopt An Intern initiative­s as well as helping the organisati­on continue to reach outside its Scottish roots.

Joy Lewis, boss of Adopt An Intern, said: “Eunice has been truly inspiratio­nal in her keynote addresses at our recent conference­s. Her drive and passion has shone through.”
