Making History: Elijah Edu ’19

Black History isn’t just a month and it isn’t just in textbooks. During #BlackHistoryMonth, we are highlighting FA Alumni making history by leading purpose-filled lives and inspiring others. #WeAreFA 

Elijah Edu, Class of 2019

Current: Senior at The College of New Jersey… In 2022, Elija received the Graig Weiss Changemaker Award recognizing an alum of Foundation Academies committed to a career that serves the greater good.

Next: Graduate School to become a sports & exercise psychologist

My Why:

“I’m choosing sports psychology because this is something that I needed but didn’t have growing up playing sports! I want to be what I needed growing up for someone else.”


“Stay locked in. Make sure you continue to network with people as well. There are always people out there who have gone through similar situations…as you. And they want to see you succeed….They foster a great community at Foundation Academies.”
