Aston University awards honorary degree to founder of local social enterprise
Aston University is awarding an honorary degree to the founder of an award-winning Birmingham social enterprise.
Rosie Ginday MBE – the Managing Director of Miss Macaroon – is being recognised by Aston University because of her work in supporting more than 50 disadvantaged young people into the food industry.
Rosie established Miss Macaroon in 2011 in an effort to create a social enterprise business that combined her passion for quality food with her desire to provide work and training for disadvantaged young people, including ex-offenders and care leavers.
Commenting on being awarded this honorary degree, Rosie says, “I feel extremely privileged to have been recognised by Aston University with this honour and I look forward to celebrating with graduates and their proud parents.”
The support that Miss Macaroon provides disadvantaged youngsters includes work experience, emotional wellbeing sessions, interview practice, industry contacts and help applying for jobs. Rosie has also been awarded an MBE for her services to the community.
