Abisola Adekoya

Abisola Adekoya (Vital Voices - Women in Management and Business - WIMBIZ): Abisola received her BA in English and International Affairs from Illinois State University in 2007. At the time of her fellowship, she was in her first year at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, studying for a Masters degree in International Development. While at Georgetown, Abisola interned with the Africa Program Department of Search for Common Ground and volunteered as an English-French translator on behalf of asylum seekers through Georgetown University’s Center for Applied Legal Studies. After her fellowship, Abisola wrote: “What a summer this has been! This experience has given me the opportunity to reconnect with my roots (and) greatly exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I have never worked in such a challenging environment, so I’m incredibly proud of myself for completing all of my work plan."
