Biography: Having been raised by a single mother of Nigerian descent, I grew up with the words education, prayer, and gratitude, laced with my mother’s beautiful accent, ringing through my ears daily. Over the last nineteen years, I have gone from staying in a homeless shelter to receiving a double full-ride scholarship to the University of Notre Dame. I am double-majoring in Business Analytics and Japanese and pursuing an International Business Certificate. I am passionate about empowering others through education and career development. It is for this reason that I accepted the position as Vice-President within Notre Dame’s National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) chapter, became an Advising Fellow for Matriculate, assumed an executive position within Men Against Sexual Violence (MASV), and continued my work with the non-profit organization Wisconsin Leadership Seminars (WILS). I intend to establish a means for the brightest students to be recognized no matter how long it takes.
