Seun Owolabi’s professional career began in retail banking, where she found herself constantly educating customers on best banking practices. But it wasn’t until after she completed her Bachelor’s degree that she linked these efforts to an interest in public service and mission-driven work.
Moving to New York in 2013 to pursue her Master’s in Public Administrations for Nonprofit Management at NYU Wagner, Seun was pleased to be surrounded by like-minded advocates who weren’t afraid to speak up for themselves and marginalized community members. From there, Seun commited to become a bridge builder, connecting resources to those in need.
After her time at Wagner, she worked in sports-based youth development where she was challenged and deeply affected by the lack of people of color in leadership positions. This led her to North Star Fund, where she found her voice and desire to speak truth to power not only welcomed, but required.
