I am Nigerian but raised in Swaziland and South Africa. I am a current sophomore and I intend on doing a double major in French and Business with minors in Economics and Education. After St. Lawrence, I would like to go to graduate school and work for the United Nations Development program, working in poverty alleviation. I am a first time CA and I am really excited about all the experiences and new skills it will bring me. I went to a United World College, where I was taught the value of community service and selflessness. I hope to be a CA that creates strong communal connections between my residents and I also hope that it helps facilitate an environment that will improve the academic, social and individual development of my residents and other students. As a CA, I have a chance to lead and interact and hopefully I impact my residents in a positive way. I hope to be a good influence and how that reflects in my community will be my little victory.
