I was born in Hillsborough, New Jersey. My father is from Nigeria, and my mother is from the Bronx. So I basically grew at the crossroads of African and American cultures.

I graduated from Columbia University in 2012, with a bachelor’s in political science and sustainable development. During undergrad, I worked in Global Wealth Management at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch for 2 years.

At Fuqua, I was involved with the Duke Global Entrepreneurship Network, the Duke Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Club, the MMS Black & Latino Business Association, as well as the MMS Marketing, Finance, and Consulting clubs, and the Intramural Football team.
