Show Notes

Shile Adeyoyin is a Nigerian-Canadian student, studying International Developments and Media Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Having migrated from Nigeria 9 years ago, her earnest desire has been to actively engage in the pursuit of improved socio-economic conditions for Africa. UTSC has given her many avenues to pursue this desire. 

In 2019, she became the co-president of the African Impact Initiative, an organization that executes initiatives centered around youth development, community impact, and increasing conversations on African history. Similarly, she was awarded a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship where she was able to complete an internship as a communications officer in Lilongwe Malawi; whilst interning, she launched a successful speech competition platform in Lilongwe Malawi to give voice to Malawian Youth.
