David is a first year student at Emory University School of Medicine, coming from an upper-middle class family in Lagos, Nigeria. He attended Lehigh University, where he received his B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience with a minor in Health, Medicine, and Society (basically Public Health). David was most active as a member of Lehigh Cru (a Christian fellowship campus ministry), a coed A cappella group, and the Office of First Year Experiences, as an Orientation Leader. In the second half of his university career, he became much more involved in research. He spent a year and a half as an undergraduate assistant performing endocrinology research with his professor. However, his passion was much more evident as a part of the Martindale Student Associates Honors Program, where he had the privilege of traveling to the UK and then working with professors to write an article on the UK health care system that was published in the Martindale journal: Perspectives on Business and Economics. He also participated in the Atlantis Project in Portugal, where he shadowed several physicians across multiple specialties. Following his degree, David took two gap years before starting medical school. He completed an EMT course but instead worked as a Registered Behavioral Technician for children with autism spectrum disorder in Cypress, Texas.
