My name is Telemi, I am currently in my second year studying PPE.
The part of my course I am most passionate about is international development, in particular the reasons for the vast differences we see in the world today. In the future I would love to pursue a career dedicated to helping bridge the development gap as I believe this is the key to providing genuinely equal opportunities to all people, regardless of their place of birth. To aid me in this career path, I desire to study a masters in development economics.
Outside of academia, my main interests are dance, and volunteering at my local church. I started dance at the age of 8, and this passion has continued with me to university where I am co-founder of Somerville dance society. I volunteer bi-weekly at my home church, serving as part of the visuals team and also as teacher of the youth group.
One of my main hobbies is baking, which I love doing at home with my younger brother. I am also an avid football fan!
