Taiwoadetayo “Blossom” Ogunyinka ‘19

Blossom Ogunyinka, majoring in Economics and Public Health, and minoring in Entrepreneurship and Management, is Nigerian-American.

What type of economics courses appealed to Blossom? The applied economics courses were the most fun, because I was able to see the real-world utility of economics as it pertained to human behavior, and its social implications. And so, I fell in love with economics.”

Blossom seized the opportunity to study abroad in Tel Aviv, Israel for a coding fellowship where she learned many valuable skills that have proved helpful to her in both the academic and professional world.

Blossom is treasurer of the National Society of Black Engineers, and a member of SCNO – Students Consulting for Nonprofit Organizations. She chills out as one of the first members of the JHU step team.

What about internships? These have included positions in finance (Aetna) and consulting (Accenture). But Blossom is not sure of her future path – maybe a master’s degree? “I hope to potentially pursue a career in consulting. This is because consulting is so versatile and allows me to combine many interests at once.”

Good luck Blossom, in your future career! (p.s. thanks a bunch for your tech help in class).
