Oluwatamilore Ajeigbe is a member of the class of 2022, from Newark Delaware concentrating in the department of African-American Studies with a certificate in Statistics and Machine Learning. Being raised in a family that sacrificed everything for education, as well as being one of the few Black students in her middle/high school led to her being concerned about the inequalities of the education system and wanting to dive deeper. Although initially interested in how the brain functions in different environments, after taking AAS courses freshman and sophomore year, she quickly started to see the value in interdisciplinary courses and thinkings that AAS offers that can help her to better understand the intricate educational system and the many factors and conditions that disproportionately affect Black people when learning, as well as the historical structure of education and see how that affects the current structure of education.
On campus, Oluwatamilore is engaged in numerous activities including being an advising fellow for Matriculate, an intern in the Women*s Center, middle school liaison for Community House Executive Board, president for the African Students Association, as well as a RISE Peer facilitator. After Princeton, Oluwatamilore hopes to enroll in a graduate program and obtain a master in either public policy or education policy, and have a career in policy and education.
