Bio

Originally from Nigeria, Mr. Chinnah has grown to appreciate the gap that lies between those in the third world countries and their first world counterparts in terms of education and development. As a Computer Science major and Graphic Design minor, Mr. Chinnah has realized that the skills being learned can be applied in ways to foster development and facilitate advancement not only in his country, but also in the Sub-Saharan Africa at large. Also, as an avid member of the on-campus Student Body Senate, his position as the Executive Assistant for Diversity has enabled him to appreciate different cultural perspectives and how similar problems in his country also cut across to other African countries.  Also, his experience as a campus representative for the Clinton Global Initiative at Wartburg College has given him a platform to be able to motivate and help other fellow African colleagues aspire to noble heights.
