Born in Nigeria and growing up in the UK, as one of the few black individuals in a predominantly white institution, secondary school was a challenge. This has been my source of motivation to apply for the Migrant Leaders Development Programme. The challenge posed by the diversity gap can be overcome through such a programme that strives to connect disadvantaged students to real-life opportunities that expand into the corporate world. Such exposure is the leverage needed to break social barriers and will provide valuable insight into the seemingly inaccessible top firms. As a result, my mentor helped me gain the Spring Internship at BNP Paribas and an Internship at Ernst & Young. I just know that my path will pave the way for the next generation.
Impact: Guidance and advice on attaining top internships. Now studying for a Bachelors Degree in Chemistry at University College London (UCL).
