Aramide Akintimehin joins Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV) this fall as a graduate student intern. She is the founder of Talent Mine Academy, a free school for children who cannot afford quality education in Nigeria.
Akintimehin’s internship with CSV includes learning and supporting CSV’s volunteer recruitment process as well as helping to develop CSV’s pilot Freshman Peer Mentoring Program.
Having worked on local and international education projects that expand learning opportunities for marginalized children, Akintimehin has been recognized by Malala and Global Partnerships for Education as one of the ten outstanding youths transforming education across the globe. She is a first-class economics graduate of Covenant University and a graduate student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education during the 2020–21 school year.
She is also the author of the e-book “20 lessons I learned at age 20.”
She loves to listen to the stories of other people, and she enjoys swimming.
She hopes that, one day, every child will access quality education regardless of their socioeconomic background.
