My story actually begins with my father. I probably got my goal oriented personality from him. He always had something he had to accomplish. When he came to Texas from Nigeria he wanted to build a company that focused on giving. So with many years of strife he built a healthcare company from the ground up. I had the gracious opportunity from my father to learn about finance and how a business runs from him. And then I learned how to be a caregiver from my mother who was a nurse. So then it was just the proper educational base the International School of Minnesota gave me that allowed me to come to the University of Minnesota to pursue a degree in Physiology. A lot of my upbringing continuously influences the choice I make today. I love the things I love because at a young age I saw what passion for a person’s job was like. I really enjoy tutoring because I really like showing the younger generation what the value of education is. Here at Varsity Tutors i promise I will uphold their values to give my clients success.
