Amadu is from Brooklyn, New York, and had recently moved to the Silicon Valley region of California at the time of his interview. He was spending his days “acclimating to the California environment, watching movies, hanging out with friends, and building my network with people out here.”

Amadu’s Most Likely To Is: "Most Likely to Become Enlightened"

He explained what “becoming enlightened” looks like to him, described what it means to “walk around unconscious”, and spoke about how he avoids that state of mind.

Amadu shared how he dealt with the academic culture shock of being surrounded by top-performing students when he first arrived at college, and we would up in an interesting discussion about strategies for helping young men deal with the micro-aggressions of daily urban life.
