Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

Demola is a member of the Cornell chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World, the Cornell Chess Club, the Cornell Green Club, and the National Society of Black Engineers.

He is the son of Nigerian immigrants and is working on becoming fluent in Chinese.

Demola breaks the rules by challenging set expectations.

He wants prospective students to know that, “everyone can do engineering, if it is your passion, go for it!”

After Cornell Engineering, Demola hopes to develop sustainable energy systems that will combat climate change and minimize the effects of global warming. He wants to live in a world where engineers will create the future and inspire change. For him, the most incredible thing about being an engineer is making an impact in areas you did not believe you could make a difference.
