Introducing Our Featured Writer: Bamidele Oni
By Bamidele Oni, University of British Columbia, featured writer for the Study in BC blog. Read more from Bamidele here.
My name is Bamidele Oni. I am from Nigeria and I arrived in the province of British Columbia (BC) on August 1, 2017. I am currently enrolled as a graduate student studying for a Master degree in International Forestry at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
Before arriving in Canada, I had the opportunity to meet with people who have lived and studied in BC. The positive feedback they provided influenced my choice of studying in the province. Aside from their feedback, BC is home to a number of world-class educational institutions and notably, among them, my institution of choice offers one of the best Forestry study programs in the world. Another important fact is that my studentship at the university is enabled by Mastercard foundation scholarship for young African leaders.
I look forward to sharing more of my story here on the Study in BC blog!
