Meet the Intern: Ojoniko Abah

Prairie State is excited to welcome Ojoniko Abah as one of our Training and Learning Development Interns this summer.

Ojoniko is originally from Olamaboro, Kogi State, Nigeria. He currently attends Murray State University with a major in computer science and a minor in data analytics. At Murray State, Ojoniko is involved in the Baptist Campus Ministry, where he attends weekly student worship services, engages in community bible study groups, assists the worship team, and participates in international student programs.

Ojoniko’s interest in computers began in high school, where he worked on computer science projects. His minor in data analytics was influenced by a college database class, which piqued his interest in the field. Ojoniko is interested in seeing how organizing data in different systems helps to increase ease of access.

Last summer, Ojoniko was the Technology Specialist Intern at a Christian summer camp. During the school year, he works on campus as a math tutor and as a physics lab assistant.

Before seeing Prairie State at a career fair, Ojoniko had not heard of the company. He later found the website and watched a few videos, which made him interested to learn more about Prairie State. Ojoniko is looking forward to transferring learning modules to computer-based training. “I will be working with analytics to match trainings and quizzes, which will help employees know which topics they need to work on.”

Ojoniko will graduate in December, and he is looking to either get a job or attend graduate school. He is open to almost any career, though he is inclined to a career in data analysis.
