When asked the prominent question, “What do you want to be when you get older?” Essie found it hard to answer because she did not want to choose one career, but wanted to create a unique pathway comprised of many career hats. One thing was certain, she wanted to serve others.

Essie is a proud first-generation Nigerian- American born in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She has fond memories of attending the annual parade on the boardwalk and watching the 4th of July fireworks adorn the night sky alongside the illuminating casino lights. After over ten years in Georgia, she is now a proud Georgia Peach.

Essie earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Professional Writing at Columbus State University. She graduated from CSU with Honors and is a member of Sigma Delta Tau sorority. While there she explored her various interests and talents. She was the President of CSU’s Beyond the Runway, Secretary of CSU’s African Student Association, served as Marketing Director for CSU Arden, Member of CSU Professional Writing Organization, member of CSU NAACP and was elected a Student Government Association Representative.

Essie enjoys writing and the “power of the pen.” She believes the power to make prolific change that will benefit future generations lies in the field of law. In essence, laws are a reflection of society, and certain laws must be altered because society is ever-changing. Knowing she could help others through strong communication and effective writing skills, she pursued her law degree at Mercer University School of Law. While in law school, Essie was a regular on the Dean’s List and is a two-time Oxford Human Rights Consortium Scholar. She was the President of the International Law Students Association, Professional Chair of the Black Law Students Association, and was a member of several other student organizations.
