Interview with Abimbola Ojemakinde

Abimbola Ojemakinde is currently studying a joint honours undergraduate degree in History and International Relations at Loughborough University. A first generation immigrant with an interest in writing, Abimbola was drawn to history for the opportunity to write creatively and learn about peoples stories. History gave her the chance to learn about these contexts, and see how the past effects the present, as well as giving her a chance to learn about new lesser-known histories not taught in schools. Abimbola recommends undertaking a History degree, even if you do not want to pursue a career in it because it is not only fun, but equips you with an understanding of what is happening today and why.
