Adenike Soyibo


 Adenike is a recent graduate of Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology where she obtained a diploma in Early-Childhood Education. While at Seneca she was a peer mentor for two semesters and participated in the Virtual Leadership Institute in 2020 and 2021. She also served as the first Secretary of the Seneca Student Federation (SSF) Career Preparation Club and provided academic guidance to a number of her peers. She is very passionate about innovation and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in childhood education. ICL’s 2021 virtual training on how to utilize the power of stories in achieving a particular change in the world has broadened her perspectives on the knitty-gritty of an effective tactic she could use to advocate for worthy cause she is passionate about. With this knowledge, she feels empowered to unite her voice with other educators to advocate for changes in the broader social conditions that impact families; campaign for a proper balance in the ratios of qualified and unqualified staff in licensed child care centres; lobby for increase funding for child care centres, and see a bridge in the wage gap between teachers and educators. She looks forward to great accomplishments
with the ICL Team.
