Temi Ajibola is a rising junior student majoring in International Relations & Global Studies and Government with a minor in French Studies. Her academic interests lie in critiquing foreign policies in African development and female security which she hopes to incorporate into her policy research. Temi is a part of the Feminist Geography Collective where she has researched the effects of foreign militarization and women’s security in Northern Nigeria. Continuing her passion for research, she has served as the Publicity Director for the Capital of Texas Undergraduate Research Conference where she and other UT students coordinated a statewide undergraduate research competition. Temi is also involved in Haven Students, International Relations and Global Studies Council, and Texas Undergraduate Research Journal. Outside of her academics, she has interned at the Texas Conference of Urban Counties, researching current social issues that impact Texas’ most populous counties. In the near future, Temi hopes to finish her honors thesis, travel to Nigeria for field research, and pursue a dual degree in law and global policy. For now, she enjoys playing the piano, writing, and hanging out with friends.
