Defe Aleladia

BSCE Chemical Engineering (2019)

Being promoted to a Building Supervisor at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center has been a positive impact on Defe Aleladia’s life. It’s pushed him to become a better communicator, to step out of his comfort zone and has also given him many friendships. He used to be shy and timid, but all has changed since he began working at the rec center in the fall semester of 2016. Defe states, “I saw a big improvement in my health ever since I started coming here regularly. My social life also improved.”

He has a Nigerian citizenship and came to America in pursuit of more career opportunities as well as to obtain the best education he can get.

Defe is majoring in chemical engineering and aspires to become a process engineer in the oil and gas industry for Chevron.
