Lisburn, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland




CIARA Jordan, 22, from Lisburn was part of the winning team from the University of Ulster who recently won the all island Student Enterprise awards with their business proposal Uberfeet (a new product designed to help women have a comfortable journey after wearing painful shoes). She graduated from UUC this year with a BSc (Hons) in Business and Computing and is now doing project work for a Design and Print company as an extension from university work.

What do you like doing on your day off?
I love meeting up with friends discussing the world and his wife and of course shopping.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be?
I love Gowdys at the Maze. The chef is fantastic and the menu is varied and suits all tastes - but my mum's home cooked Sunday dinner with my family cannot be beaten.

What has been your proudest moment?
Winning the All island Student Enterprise awards in June this year-completely unexpected and definitely worth the hard work in getting there. Travelling to Cork and being awarded 1st prize against such stiff competition was something I will never forget. The prize of �10,000 and access to business development support will hopefully mean that our idea makes it on to the market place.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
Smart/casual. I love the high street shops and making my own mark with varied accessories.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Call all my closest friends and family and tell them to book the next two months off to take them on the holiday of a lifetime. After that I would invest in a business and work to make it a success.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
Falling off a Pogo stick, breaking my wrist and being constantly reminded of it.

What music do you like?
Most dance music, Chris Brown, Kings of Leon and various other genres.

Your ideal holiday?
Simply to stay in luxury accommodation in beautiful Mediterranean weather by the sea - and a beach bar. My holiday this year in the Costa del Sol came close to this.

What is your greatest ambition?
To run a successful company with locations in many countries and remain happy.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Danny Dyer.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
Cordless straighteners, boyfriend and photos of all friends and family and I would have to sneak in my phone.
