Tobi E. Afolayan

Originally from Nigeria, Tobi E. Afolayan is pursuing a dual major in international affairs and communications, along with a Spanish minor. He conducted the research for his Inquiry article through a research fellowship awarded by the McNair Graduate Opportunity Program at UNH. Tobi says that studying the African immigrant experience has given him a wider perspective on human experiences, as well as making him a more effective and scholarly researcher and writer. After obtaining a bachelor’s of art in May 2012, Tobi hopes to pursue a PhD in political science: “I’m really interested in furthering my research in African affairs,” says Tobi.
