My name is Oluwatofunmi Oluwatomiwa Adeniran. I am 22 years, born in Lagos state, Nigeria but spent most of my time, growing up in Ibadan, Oyo state. I speak English fluently and a little of Yoruba and French. I was born into a family of 5, the second child amongst three children. I currently work as a Data Engineer (a graduate trainee position) at Cirrusage. I enjoy reading, playing board games and learning how to speak French. I studied chemical engineering at the Obafemi Awolowo University and graduated with First class honours. I finished as the best graduating student of my department in the 2018/2019 session. I was honoured with an award by the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) as the best sophomore in the session 2015/2016 (DONALD F. OTHMER SOPHOMORE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AWARD). I also received the OLU AWOYINFA’s award for graduating as the best in my class. I intend on attaining a doctorate degree in a top institution which I believe will provide me the opportunity to pursue my interests in chemical engineering in depth and provide a platform for me to invest in my future. I plan on pursing a specific interest (Renewable Energy) in chemical engineering. After my doctorate, I intend to function as a research process engineer in the Energy Industry. I graduated as top of my class because of my perseverance, my disciplined upbringing, and my penchant for studying in-depth, with these qualities I am certain I will be successful in graduate school. I found out about the Michael Taiwo Scholarship through Social Media (Whatsapp and LinkedIn precisely and I would definitely love to learn to swim.
