Communication, B.A. Drexel University

My name is Kristian Ogungbemi and I'm a student in the Urban Teaching Apprenticeship Program (UTAP). I'm seeking certification in Secondary Social Studies and English Education. Although I'm originally from a suburb of Cincinnati, OH; I moved to Philadelphia in 2010 to attend Drexel University for my bachelor's degree.
