Adewale grew up in a community “where the vast majority of people never thought about college as an option.” He feels he is an example of how higher education can change one’s life for the better. Adewale believes that communities like the one he came from “need organizations like IHEP to reach out and inspire people to reach heights that they never thought they could reach.” In his spare time, Adewale enjoys spending time with his daughter and producing high-quality photos and short videos.
