Adebukola Ajao

Site Director 

Adebukola attended Emmanuel College in her hometown, Boston, where her interest in media began. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Emmanuel College and a minor in Africana Studies from Simmons College. After taking a “Black Twitter” course at Simmons College, she learned about the importance of social media data mining. In 2016, #SandraBland was mysteriously deleted from Tumblr’s searchable content and no one could find pictures or information regarding her death, therefore scholars began collecting and archiving Black Lives Matter related tweets. Through this archiving process she became interested in learning about media consumerism and its impact on the development of young people. To answer the call of economically enhancing her community and providing media education to small businesses, she started a media consulting practice called BDY CONSULT. She has garnered major clients such as Verizon, actress, singer, songwriter Keke Palmer, and the illustrious Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Yet, she always pledges to work with an individual or organization pro bono when she has the opportunity. In 2017, she worked with clients from three low-income neighborhoods in Boston. She developed their brand messages and collected social media analytics to measure their success. She also guided them through the dangers of social media on self-esteem, fake news, and ads. Currently, she is pursuing a Master of Professional Studies in Digital Media with a concentration in social media management at Northeastern University.
