Oluwaseun (pronounced as HOR-lu-wa-CHER-un) is a graduate student at the Peter A. Allard School of Law. He is a foreign-trained lawyer, deliberative democrat, and public policy analyst with over a decade experience in intergovernmental affairs, unconventional negotiations tactics, social justice, human rights, and security issues.

For the past seven years, he has been part of a team advising prominent regional and continental-wide organizations in Africa on issues of minoritization and marginalization that arise from ethnic differences which share semblance with but are different from race.
