Tijesuni Oyeyemi (he/him) is a third-year electrical engineering major who immigrated to the United States from Nigeria about three years ago. Oyeyemi is currently the vice president of the Black Engineers Association, which promotes inclusivity and aims to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers to succeed academically and professionally, as well as to positively impact the community. In the summer of 2021, Oyeyemi was a system validation intern at Intel. This summer, he will be a software engineer at NerdWallet.
At UC Davis, he has learned the importance of community and surrounding yourself with people who have similar goals as you, because college life is too hard to go through alone. His piece of advice is to time-manage properly and do your best to follow through with your plans. Perseverance and discipline are necessary for success!
