Damilola Adesanya, from Brooklyn NY, is currently a junior at the University at Albany, double-majoring in Sociology and Communications with a minor in Women Studies and Leadership.
Damilola has been an active student since her freshman year. In her time at the University at Albany, she has served as a Resident Assistant, student representative on the University Auxiliary Services Board of Directors, and Executive Aid to the at-the-time University at Albany Student Government Association President Langie Cadesca.
In addition to serving as Secretary, Damilola currently holds the roles of President of the African Student Association at her university, as well as the founder and dance instructor of “Own It: Afrobeats”
