Oluseun Kayode Arowolaju Welcomes You!
The life of Oluseun Kayode Arowolaju is one dedicated the scripture written in 1 Timothy 6:12, which calls us to, “Fight the good fight of the faith.”
Born in 1993 into a family of teachers and entrepreneurs in Akure, Ondo State located in the South-western part of Nigeria, Oluseun and his family have new and humble beginnings in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Oluseun is proud of his family’s humble beginning. Moving to America with just $100 and a suitcase began the story he proudly shares to continuously inspire others to have faith, embrace risk and think critically.
As a youth, Oluseun discovered a passion for sports and technology after being introduced to football by his best friend, and a computer by his father. Using his imagination, he would put pillows in shoulders to simulate football shoulder pads and stack boxes on one another in building a “robot”. By the time he was able to pursue sports and technology more practically, he obtained a Bachelors (B.S.) degree in Sports Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2016 where he also played college football. He later pursued a Masters (M.S.) degree in Technology Management from the same university where he left to start a technology company Mesh++ in 2017. In the summer of 2018, he taught himself to code and landed a job at PEAK6 Investments, where he’s currently a Data Product Manager.
One of the motivations for his academic, athletic and professional achievements was Oluseun Arowolaju’s desire to break the stereotypes that people used to box him in and out. By thinking outside of the box, he proved one can find success in multiple domains, especially in technology. This ultimately led to the beginning of his ministry after being baptized in the Jordan River, on November 10, 2019, at the Yardenit Baptism Site in Israel.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
“And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.”
“Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut”
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
