Adebowale-Saka Profile

Adebowale Saka, Nigeria

3rd year, Mechanical Engineering Co-op

“My biggest challenge was putting myself out there to take opportunities to meet new people. International Student Services organized events such as hiking or exploring new restaurants in Hamilton, which gave me the confidence to put myself out there.

I feel excited when I return to McMaster after being away for the holidays. I look forward to how the semester will go, seeing my friends, learning from new professors. McMaster has now become my second home.”

“Mac has such a close-knit community and is very welcoming. Academic excellence is what initially drew me to McMaster but the support and acceptance really helped me find a sense of belonging.”
