Commencement Profiles

Chinyere Enyinna '09
The Healer

Major: Psychology

Hometown: Lagos, Nigeria 

Why I Chose Adelphi: I always wanted to see New York City, and attending Adelphi was a great opportunity to do that. Adelphi was also able to provide me with financial assistance. Coming from a large high school, I wanted a school that was small and facilitated close relationships with faculty and other students.

Future Plans: Will be attending Columbia University for a master’s in social-organizational psychology

Best Adjective to Describe Me: Independent

Favorite Quote:
“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to ensure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than our suffering.”
- Ben Okri

Movie That Most Clearly Mirrors My Life: Little Miss Sunshine because of my family who is always there for each other, despite the wackiness.

In 10 Years, I Will Be: A successful psychologist and a published writer with a beautiful family.
