Praise Daramola

Praise Daramola is a senior electrical and computer engineering student from Lagos, Nigeria. Despite growing up on the other side of the Atlantic, Praise is the latest of several members of his family to study at UAB.

When our new Dean of Engineering, Jeff Holmes, M.D., Ph.D., first arrived on campus, we asked him Five Questions about UAB, Birmingham, and himself. Recently, Holmes started posing his own "Five Questions" to our UAB Engineering students. In the clips below, ECE student Praise Daramola answers questions about her experience as a UAB student. Then he turns the interview around with a few questions of his own for the new dean.
