Seun Shokunbi ’20TC

Seun seeks to connect her diaspora community with her native roots in order to spark a generational revolution in Africa. Her work with Karfi, a consulting and leadership development firm, tackles the issue of untapped talent, particularly among African youth. She strongly believes that democratizing the entrepreneurial space is vital to Africa’s economic development. That means empowering any and all, regardless of wealth, status, or geography, with the resources and tools needed to lead and succeed. Seun earned a BA in english and communications from Fordham University in New York City, then moved to London to complete a master’s in international management (magna cum laude) at SOAS, University of London, focusing on human capital development in the Middle East and North Africa. Her career involves 9+ years of work as an educator, data manager, writer, and consultant, and includes work with both the Clinton Foundation and the United Nations.

Seun has been published multiple times in Face2Face Africa and writes articles on the topics of business, marketing, and international development for her personal Medium publication.
