Hakeem Oluseyi has a unique story. Not only is he a world renown scientist and Chief Science Officer for Discovery Networks, he has a passion for giving back to the community. Growing up an inner-city kid in New Orleans rough 9th ward gave him a perspective on the world that included gangs, drugs, and an environment that did not foster academic success. But he continued to dream, and he created his future with his passion and unfailing determination to get the education he needed.
Hakeem will be sharing his story at the Berkeley High School Graduation, where Ms. Irma Parker pursued him as a keynote speaker until he said, “Yes!”
Dr. Oluseyi is set to inspire that crowd at the end of May.
