Kevin is a Nigerian American who doesn’t always rely on his words to be seen or heard but seeks to serve in his community through the direction of God, by empowering others around him.
Going into his third year at the University of Georgia, his experiences at the university have helped him to find his passions of mentorship and service. Kevin has served as a 2020 Orientation Leader, a Peer Leader for SGA’s First-Year Forum, a director for the UGA Mentor Program, and an ambassador for Georgia African American Male Experience. He believes that we all can bring change in our community by serving and sharing our stories. Kevin is also the Vice President of Philanthropy of the Student Alumni Council, which has sparked his love for fundraising and has even helped him to start his own scholarship. Kevin created the Servant Leader Scholarship in 2019, committed to providing financial support along with opportunities for mentorship, community service, and academic & professional development for graduating students at his alma mater, Stephenson High School.

While there have been struggles, Kevin will continue to use his journey to transform and inspire him to continue to find ways to impact others around him. Kevin will change the world through mentorship, service, and by providing others access to resources and opportunities.
