Leeds Trinity University graduates receive top Psychology award

Big shout out to Psychology graduates Macy Iwediebo and Rebecca Rose who received the 2021 British Psychological Society (BPS) Undergraduate Citation for Excellence in Undergraduate Qualitative Research. They were nominated for their dissertations on “the influence of music genre on Black male identity and behaviour” and “experiences of colourism for Black British women in the UK”.

Dr [Alison] Torn said: “Both Macy and Rebecca worked throughout their degrees with a quiet determination, and it was a pleasure to supervise their final year projects. It’s fair to say I pushed both students hard, particularly during the data analysis stage, as I knew they were capable of outstanding work. They shared a focused, professional, and diligent approach to their work which resulted in these BPS awards and their First-Class degrees.”

She added: “It is to their credit that despite all the pressures of completing a degree during a pandemic, both students achieved a successful outcome in relation to their degree and the BPS award. As their supervisor and lecturer, I’m immensely proud of both Macy and Rebecca.”
