When evaluating whether a mentor would be a good match for your student keep in mind that the greatest leading indicator of success is how well a mentor and their mentee get along.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Would the student find this person inspiring?
  • Do they share any interests, hobbies, or lived experiences?

Ayotomiwa A. (IN A NUTSHELL)

Ayotomiwa is passionate about the intersections of business, technology, and education. He is a senior at the University of Pennsylvania studying Computer Science and Business. Years ago, he wrote and published a book for Nigerian students sharing his lessons on balancing academic success with discovering and exploring your interests. Ayotomiwa hopes to continue to promote self-discovery through learning at Curious Cardinals by sharing interests of his own. His interest in technology and entrepreneurship has led to work experiences with two Y-Combinator startups, and more recently Software Engineering at Google. Beyond formal work experiences Ayotomiwa enjoys tinkering with small side projects whether its simple games, websites, or using the latest AI technologies. He also writes mostly book reviews at and loves playing Sports! Ayotomiwa is excited to support students that want to expand their technical skills to build cool applications, websites, or just bring their ideas to life!
