Simbi

I was born in Staten Island, New York, but I spent my 5th birthday on a flight to Lagos, Nigeria where I would eventually grow up.  Living in Nigeria for seven years definitely shaped my point of view. As a result of my experience in Lagos, I value diverse cultures, spiritual growth, education and leadership.  Currently I am a rising sophomore at Baruch College, where I have been able to exercise and develop these values daily. I have decided to pursue a major in Accountancy with a minor in New Media Arts, to fulfill both my professional goals and creative nature.

I’ve grown tremendously while attending Baruch and taken on multiple leadership roles.  I now serve as the Director of Communications for the Baruch chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants.  Additionally, I am the Director of Event Planning for the African Students’ Association at Baruch (ASAB) as well as the Co-Founder/Lead Choreographer for ASAB’s dance team. I am also an official peer mentor to incoming students with an organization on campus called T.E.A.M Baruch.

Beyond my involvement in school, I run a Christian blog that I use to inspire, encourage and motivate today’s youth using my experiences as examples.  I enjoy choreographing new dances, videography (especially post production) and I’m trying to learn how to disc jockey! I look forward to making new friends and growing with ANY.
