Adejobi received a bachelor's degree in political science from Spelman College, and a J.D. with a specialization in International Legal Affairs from Cornell Law School. She served as the president of the Black Law Students Association at Cornell Law School from 2007-2008.
She began real estate investing while a student at Spelman -- a little-known secret she said. Adejobi said she is simply pursuing her passion, and she credits her alma mater for helping her realize that dream.
“Spelman above all else teaches students to believe in themselves and pursue dreams,” said Adejobi. “Spelman's faculty, administration, and students provide an environment that instills vision, execution, confidence and belief in one's self. Those are the foundational qualities that all entrepreneurs must have.”
