Professional interests:
Adaeze believes that doing good public health work requires prioritizing the people most affected. Her goal as a public health practitioner is to move away from harmful extractive practices, amplify the voices of those most affected, and practice cultural humility as she serves. At Cornell, Adaeze is excited to build relationships across campus, partner with students, and center community-driven solutions to create a health promoting campus.

Personal interests:
Adaeze immigrated to the US from Nigeria at a very young age with her parents, and grew up in NH with three younger siblings. Writing, especially poetry about her faith journey, grounds her. Adaeze enjoys being active, spending time nature, listening to people’s stories, binging YouTube, and wholesome TV. Adaeze is currently in a season of getting back into music, specifically piano. She also enjoys exploring new places and communities, both domestically and abroad.
