ROMEO MURISA

Barking Riverside resident since 2007

Resident Steering Group Member of Thames Ward Community Project and Member of the TWCP Arts & Culture Citizen Action Group

Romeo is passionate about having an impact on other people’s lives. He works as a Medical Sales Representative who helps hospitals provide better patient outcomes. Currently, he is the North East London Area Manager for Acumed, a global market leader who provides orthopaedic and medical solutions that improve patient care worldwise. His aim is to use what he learns in this field to improve the healthcare back in his home country Zimbabwe and the rest of Africa. 
 
He is also a rhythmic poet. Romeo uses the skills and daily practice, of putting pen to paper, to share his journey through spoken word. As well as being a huge fan of multiple expressions of art. 
 
His vision for Thames Ward is to create a space that allows the voiceless to gain a voice through reflective art experiences, that helps them grow their passions.
