Chibuikem Iheagwaram is originally from Nigeria, West Africa and is a sophomore Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major at Fisk University, Nashville, Tennessee. He is intrigued by and passionate about research (especially the scientific kind) because there is always something new to learn, discover, or change one's mind about.

Chibuikem's favorite things to do include having great conversations, graphic designing, creative writing, learning or creating something new, and making coffee. He believes in using the resources he has to pour back into those coming after him.

Using different avenues including mentorship, innovation, advocacy and entrepreneurship, he intends to give back to his community in the USA and also in Nigeria, his home country. Chibuikem's mantra is that greatness is within reach for everyone, and hence, he wants to add value to and inspire people in his own little way.
