Graduate Resident Fellow
Hailing originally from Atlanta, Emeka is a second year master's student at the ILR School. Before that, he attended Amherst College where he majored in Sociology and worked in numerous educational related fields outside of the classroom. After finishing up undergrad, he went off to Singapore and worked as a Dean's Fellow for three years at Yale-NUS College. While in Singapore, Emeka found his passion for all things mangosteen and mutton, while also scratching that travel itch that took him through many other southeast Asian countries. Now with one full year back in the States, he looks forward to spending his remaining time at Cornell with Alice Cook House, but more importantly with the best residential community on campus: 625 University Avenue.
Feel free to reach out to him to chat about adventures abroad, feel like playing 2K, need help deciding what new comic book to read, or looking for a new podcast to check out. He's looking forward to having a blast this year by sharing and exploring our residents' interests, so bring your ideas to him and watch him make magic happen.
