Her Campus (HC): Why did you decide to come to FSU?

Ayobami Adeagbo (AA): I decided to come to FSU simply because of the experience I had when I came for a visit. The feeling of being on the campus was just right and I knew that this was where I wanted to be.

HC: That’s exactly my reason! Florida State is just too gorgeous and feels too right to pass up. What led to your decision to go into your major?

AA: My end goal was the reason I chose my major. I felt like being a biology major would benefit me the most with trying to go to medical school.

HC:  Are you apart of any organizations on campus?

AA: I’m apart of DREAM, The African Student Association, and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated.

HC: Seems like you’re quite involved on campus. What are these organizations about?

AA: DREAM is a community service organization based on the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr. We give back to the community in locations that we feel are being overlooked. Our philanthropy is “Saving The Arts.” This has to do with the fact that art programs are being cut from schools every year.

The African Student Association is an organization that focuses on bringing together different cultures through togetherness and community service.

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated is an organization that develops leaders, promotes brotherhood, and academic excellence while providing service and advocacy for our community. This fraternity was founded upon the aims of manly deeds, scholarship, and love for all mankind.

HC: Do you hold any positions in these organizations?

AA: I make up one-half of the Socials and Events Chair for DREAM and one-half of the Membership Chair for the African Student Association.

HC:  With all of those extracurriculars on your plate what do you do in your spare time?

AA: In my spare time, I like to hang out with friends or grab something to eat! *Laughs*

HC:  What are your career goals?

AA: After undergraduate school, I want to go to medical school and become either a surgeon or a general physician.

HC:  What motivates you in life?

AA: What motivates me is the story of my mother’s journey to where she is now from when she lived in Nigeria. Even though things were extremely difficult, she managed to make do with what she had and get her masters degree.

HC: Incredible. Do you have a motto you live by to pick you up when you lose motivation?

AA: The motto that I live by is one by Napoleon Hill. “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”  

 HC: I really like that one. I just might steal that motto. What legacy do you want to leave behind at FSU once you graduate?

AA: After graduation, I want to be remembered for being a genuine person that was well-respected. I want to be a person that no one had anything bad to say about. I want to be remembered as a person who brought something new to the campus that will continue through the years.

HC: It seems like you’re making an impact already with your involvement. I wish you the best with your goals. What is your most interesting experience so far at FSU?

AA: My most interesting experience so far at FSU was being a part of the COBOL showcase as a freshman. I was given the opportunity to play a large role amongst upperclassman.

I'm a senior at Florida State University who loves her Seminoles (GO NOLES!), reading, and ,of course, writing while drinking a hot cup of Twining's Spiced Apple Chai and listening to classical music.
