ALU Nigerian applicants Idowu Gbenga and Oluseye Obadeyi teamed up to visit schools in their neighbourhood to spread the word about ALU. The two became friends while taking ALU’s online application course Africa Rising and decided to spread the word about the life-changing course. Gbenga is a Computer Science student at the Lagos State Polytechnic and Oluseye is studying Chemical Engineering at the University of Lagos.
We caught up with them over email to find out how Africa Rising motivated them and why they are applying to ALU.
This week, we at ALU are celebrating change leaders—those who are not afraid to go against the grain, push the envelope and break the rules, if needed, to make a difference in the world around them. After all, the future of Africa, and the world, lies in their hands.
ALU has always aimed to empower African youths, and this is evident in our new YAR initiative. YARs (Youth Admissions Representatives) are ALU’s ambassadors on the ground, representing ALU and helping spread information about our offering to all corners of Africa.
