    Windward Spirit Scholarship
    Reading the “Ode to Millennials-Gen Z”, I felt an immediate resonance. Being at the intersection of these two generations and navigating the world of technology as a Computer Science student, I’ve witnessed first-hand the challenges and the transformative spirit of my peers. The ode paints a vivid portrait of two worlds: the bygone era of the Greatest Generation and the modern realm of Millennials and Gen Z. As I delved deeper into the text, memories of my journey as David Tejuosho were invoked. The ode speaks of our rendezvous with destiny. Indeed, as Millennials-Gen Z, we face formidable challenges, from economic uncertainties to global warming. While at Google, I worked on projects ensuring equity, and at Johnson & Johnson, I built libraries to aid clinical trial audits. These experiences gave me a glimpse into the vastness of our challenges and the innovations we’re devising to address them. Yet, even in the face of such adversity, the ode highlights our unwavering spirit. The economic and societal burdens are ones we’ve had to shoulder, much like the Greatest Generation before us. It's not just about the workplace. I recall my experiences as a cross-country runner during my freshman year and as a writer for The Teen Magazine. Each venture was different, yet they all required a certain adaptability and resilience – the very essence of my generation. Our predecessors had their tools: letters, telephones, radios. We have ours: smartphones, AI, cloud computing. When the ode mentions the puzzlement of older generations at our tech savviness, I can’t help but smile. I remember my parents' astonishment as I tweaked algorithms for a cargo-offloading robot or designed software for Google Classroom's mobile app. Perhaps what stands out most is the ode's mention of our hope and excitement about life. Despite the “sickness of school loans” and a “sickened tax structure,” our spirits remain undeterred. Every hackathon I’ve been to, every coding challenge I’ve faced, I’ve witnessed this very enthusiasm. At HackMIT 2023, my peers and I collaborated to design an application that aids in mastering character writing in different languages. This ingenuity isn’t just about technology; it's a testament to our generation's boundless optimism. Yet, it isn’t about outshining our predecessors or proving our mettle. It's about understanding, as the ode rightly points out, that we are “our elders in universe time.” We hold the torch handed over by previous generations. Our journey, like theirs, is marked by trials. But we face them head-on, armed with innovation and a vision for a brighter future. The “Ode to Millennials-Gen Z” isn't just a comparison between two generations. It’s a tribute to the enduring human spirit. Will we be the “Greatest Generation 2.0”? Only time will tell. However, given our resilience, adaptability, and the bridges we’re building with technology, I’m optimistic. As I continue my journey in the tech realm, I carry with me the ethos of my generation: to face our rendezvous with destiny and shape a world that celebrates unity, progress, and hope.
    Revolutionizing Robotics and Computer Sciences Scholarship
    In a world driven by rapid technological advancement, the concept of "revolution" becomes both a desire and a necessity. As a junior in Computer Science, my journey has been marked by adapting to constant change, but there is one area where the revolution is still at its dawn: accessible and equitable educational technology. Growing up as a first generation computer science student, I've witnessed first-hand the disparities in access to quality education. In my internship at Google, while working on the Classroom Assignment Workflow team, I was exposed to how technology could potentially bridge the educational divide. But the divide still exists. Students from marginalized communities often lack the means to access quality educational platforms or even the basic infrastructure to support online learning. The current educational tech, although groundbreaking, often assumes that its end-users have the privilege of continuous internet connectivity and high-tech devices. Imagine a revolution where educational platforms are not just cloud-based but also offline-friendly. Envision AI-driven learning modules that adapt to a student's pace and available resources. As someone who has felt the exhilarating comfort of modern amenities and the great distress of basic challenges, I can't help but imagine how revolutionary it would be to have educational platforms that mold themselves according to the student's immediate environment, resources, and learning pace. But beyond the software, there's a hardware revolution awaiting too. During my tenure at Johnson & Johnson, I worked with the R&D's intelligent automation team. The skills acquired there made me wonder: what if we had cost - effective, self - assembling hardware modules for students in remote areas? Think of it as educational tech's equivalent to modular smartphones – components that students could assemble based on their immediate learning needs. This vision might seem far-fetched to some, but if there's anything my journey has taught me, it's the power of resilience and innovation. From running cross country to exploring the vast world of tech with giants like Google and Johnson & Johnson, every experience has taught me that change is inevitable, but revolutions are intentional. And as someone who has been both a beneficiary and contributor to technological advances, I can't help but imagine a world where every student, irrespective of their background, has access to tailored educational resources. This is the revolution I envision, and with the support of platforms like Loupe, I am hopeful it's a vision we can achieve together.

    Dr. Meme Heineman Scholarship
    “Why are you like this? You should change.” As a kid, I hated myself. I hated how I looked, how I sounded; how I spoke, how I acted; how I felt, who I was. “You’re noisy.” I wanted to not be myself so bad, I hardly could recognize who I was; I lost my self-being and personality and was happy about it. “You’re annoying.” Masking became my life so much that I began to feel like I didn’t have a real personality. I had different accents when talking to different people, different slang, different demeanor; I was always a whole different person. I wasn’t masking my ADHD; I was masking who I was. “Why can’t you just be normal?” At least I would fit in? “You should just be yourself.” No. No, I wouldn’t. “He has a lot of potential. If only he applied himself, he’d be our best student.” Even in the classroom, I’d wonder why I would always find myself distracted or doing homework at the last minute—or not at all. I had no problem with learning and exams; in fact, it was always so easy for me, I’d never had to study to ace the exams. Regularly getting the best test scores in my grade but failing to turn in homework. “You’re always late.” I had no support systems and accommodations asides the physical and emotional abuse casually inflicted on me by my teachers while in boarding school in Nigeria. “You’re lazy.” Something was wrong with me; I was brought up understanding that, believing that. When my family moved to the US away from a space where mental health is stigmatized worse than the plague, I learned about the existence of neurodiversity. I thought I was, maybe, autistic or bipolar but had nobody to talk to about it. I remember watching the “Failing at Normal” YouTube video about a woman with ADHD and deciding to learn more about ADHD. I had ADHD; I was sure of it. However, it wasn’t until I was 18 years old, when I could sign all the consent papers without my parents that I finally got diagnosed for what I had known for over a year. I felt like I finally had a scapegoat for everything I hated about myself. I immediately searched for, and found, many ADHD communities on Twitter, Reddit, Discord and even Slack. Most important of all, I could now learn how to accommodate myself for success and had a community to support me, give me advice and listen/relate to me—people I didn’t have to mask to. It wasn’t the end of my struggles; it was the beginning of my acceptance. My baby sister is 10 years old, and it is apparent she also has ADHD. Using my experience with constant negative reinforcement, I make effort to myself use and educate my parents on positive behavior support. Nevertheless, I think to where I would be if I was still in Nigeria with no knowledge of even the existence of ADHD. I imagine the lives of millions of Nigerians living with ADHD, and, even more so, the protentional 10s of millions around the world who hate themselves because they live in a space where who they are is hidden and stigmatized. With this scholarship and my college education, my number one goal is to reach those people. To reach the neglected people who have to go their entire life masking away.

    “That sounds like a great idea!” Miriam, the co-founder and executive director of the Presidents’ Alliance, said. “We’d be happy to host it on our website.” No sweeter words had been sung to my ears. I almost couldn’t resist the urge to jump and scream—an act that would have undoubtedly left me with a torn suit and a dazed audience. This was a milestone in October to a journey that began in June. Rejection after rejection after rejection. My college reaches had shown me why they are called reaches. I had no backup plan. Not because I didn’t apply to safeties—I applied to multiple—but because I was an undocumented student. When most schools said “100% financial need meet,” they didn’t mean me. I was not eligible for their scholarships or grants or loans or work-study. In April, as a low-income student, my chances of going to college weren’t looking good. After about a week of wallowing in self-pity, I decided to begin my college search and application process again—from scratch—with the small number of schools that were still accepting applications. I searched through the jungle of information, much of which was not publicly available information, for specific policies on undocumented students. After a mentally destabilizing time for me, I secured admissions with a fairly affordable cost of attendance. Regardless, my experience was not fun. It was unduly burdening, and I was determined to ensure other students like me didn’t go through what I did. I began by mentoring a fellow but junior undocumented student through the application process. While the experience was good, with her having just received a full-ride admission to Washington University in St. Louis, I felt like I could and should reach more students. Late in June, I realized that the biggest problem for me was information and misinterpretation of admissions/financial aid policy. Having discussed with my friends, this wasn’t a me problem. Thousands of students around the country were most likely struggling with the same problem. I decided that to tackle the problem, I would create a centralized database/information resource for undocumented students. I got to work immediately, extracting the emails for admissions offices for a few hundred schools to an excel sheet, creating the questions to be asked, designing the webpage where the information would be displayed, and finally reaching out to the schools whose contact information I had. Using mail merge, I sent personalized emails to schools, stored replies in an excel sheet in the same workbook, and created an access query to merge relevant information. I then exported the information to a text file and created a program to extract the information from the text into HTML files for each school. I then created a presentation and reached out to schedule a meeting with the President's Alliance, and there I was, pitching the plan I had conceptualized and was executing myself. There are many ways to exhibit leadership. Taking the initiative is my way.

    “So, I told you to shut up and you did?” My dad yelled, paying little mind to the fact that we were at the airport. It had become routine to be scolded publicly by my dad, who raised me with an iron hand. I couldn’t blame him, I was pretty exasperating as a child, since I frequently broke things and could never settle down. “You were trying to remind me, why didn't you say it straight?” my dad said angrily, and I imagined my mum being there, what she’d say or do. Not any more lenient than my dad, my mum was, at the very least, understanding. The last time I saw her is etched in my memory as the worst day of my life. The day I realized that tears ran from an endless well of grief. It isn’t so much a distant memory to me. I can remember my sheer helplessness whilst crying, as the neighbours rushed to rescue my mum, sister, and aunt from our home engulfed in flames. It was a turning point in my life, as it brought out the hidden melancholy in my sanguine nature. Many times, I’d blame myself for not being there. It changed me, but it gave me ‘my first ambition.’  For years, I was in a state of denial. I wanted, so much, to change what had happened. I was going to build a time machine! I commenced my first self-project at age nine with nothing but my toxic motivation, in the form of denial. I researched Einstein’s contributions and modelled Edison’s perseverance; despite being a 5th grader, the effort made me advance far ahead of my level in maths and physical sciences. This gave me a major advantage in STEM-related subjects during my middle and high school years. During this period, I cultivated my Extreme Ambition: all my life afterwards, I’ve aimed so high that even by failing, I’d have gained something. By shooting for the moon, even if I’d miss, I’d fall among the stars.  My dad had run out of words to scold me with and there was a deafening silence between us as we boarded the plane. Furthermore, there was an error and we were assigned seats apart which was good. Time always healed tension between my dad, who is prone to act on immediate emotion, and I. I got a window seat and as we took off, I glanced once more at my country, the only home I’d ever known. My glance extended to a stare and I struggled to think of a justifiable reason for my departure in an attempt to clear my conscience. I thought of those who came first in competitions I was second in, and those who hit a bullseye on the moon whilst I fell among the stars. I wondered why I left when they stayed, and in a steadying moment of clarity, I realized why I was on that plane. it came back to me why I was on my way to a foreign land, and why I was leaving all that I loved: to achieve something greater. An outstanding education was my moon, and this was me taking my shot. I couldn’t control their decisions, but I could control mine, and I decided: I was leaving to succeed, to make sure no one from my country ever has to leave their home in order to achieve greatness again.  I think back to that day and now remember why I stopped working on my time machine: If I could change anything in the past, I wouldn’t change a second; because every part of it made me who I am today and continues to make who I become tomorrow.
