Temidayo Ojo, C’22, deepened her passion for studying human behavior through her Visual Neuroscience and Abnormal Psychology classes at Penn.

Ojo, who is from Catonsville, Maryland, is a member of The Inspiration a cappella group and Onyx Senior Honor Society. Her interests range from the fine arts and music to psychology and creative writing. After taking some neuroscience and biology classes in high school, Ojo was attracted to the Biological Basis of Behavior major at Penn (now Neuroscience). Having the chance to take immersive classes such as Abnormal Psychology solidified her interest in pursuing clinical psychology as a career.

“Fully immersing yourself in one system can be really beneficial in understanding how other systems work and understanding the importance of diving deeper into a subject,” Dayo says.

Pathways is a student series from Penn Arts & Sciences that highlights the academic journeys of students in the College of Arts & Sciences and the transformational moments that have shaped their intellectual experiences.
