Mercedes Bamgbose received her BS in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014 and currently works as a Rotational Engineer. Even though she was not born in Nigeria, she was raised there for about 9 years before returning to the States. She enjoys traveling, trying out new things and also being adventurous which is one of the reasons why she is excited about working with The 234 Project.
She believes that she still has so much more to learn about Nigeria and what makes the country so unique. She emphasizes that she cannot expect other people to take interest in my country if I myself am not educated with its history and culture. Mercedes is excited to be able to learn while also enriching others all around the world and sharing the beauty that is Nigeria.
