Precious Adetayo-Oguntade

Hello! My name is Precious Adetayo-Oguntade. I am a chemical engineering major. I transferred in fall of 2019 from University of Lynchburg. I like to watch k-dramas, thrift and create content for social media. I also like to experiment with new makeup looks and style while also creating pieces of my own. My career goal is to be a cosmetic engineer and one day open a business targeted towards skincare and beauty for women of color. My number one tip for transfer students is to get out there and see what UMBC has to offer!

I transferred from Jacksonville University in 2020. I enjoy traveling, going to the gym, and going on hikes. My career goals are to practice international law and work as a political consultant. My number one tip for transfer students is to attend on campus events and to explore the various orgs that we have here on campus!
