Why did you become a mentor: While I was a mentee, I saw the importance of having a mentor who had my back and was willing to assist me. I personally benefitted a lot from this experience, which made me decide to give back in the same manner I was given while I was a Mentee.

Bio: I was born and raised in a relatively small city in Nigeria. I am the last of 4 kids in my Family. As a kid, I’ve always loved soccer and wanted to become a professional. I decided to major in Electrical Engineering for so many reasons, one of which relates to soccer (I am sure you must be wondering how?). I’m someone who likes interacting with people and love to see a smile on the faces of others.

Favorite spot on campus: the Game Room
