Khadijah Adamu

At the University, I am obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies, an African Studies certificate, and a Global Studies certificate with a focus on Cultural Dynamics. The bulk of my studies have centered on relationships between people, relationships between countries and cultures, and the relationships between legal systems throughout the world. I plan to become an International Lawyer, devoting most of my career to aiding African countries in their global development from a legal perspective.
