Timilehin Alake

Graduate Fellow

Timilehin Alake is a PhD student in the International Writer’s Track of the Comparative Literature program. His works, both critical and creative, focus on migration, postcolonial literatures, global blackness, and the African diasporas. He got his bachelor’s in Linguistics, and he has MAs in English literature, Education, and Creative Writing (Fiction). Timilehin relishes working with youth, both in roles as an educator and mentor. He has been involved in different literacy and educational programs in Texas where he previously lived, serving as a contest judge for local and statewide writing contests as well as in other capacities. When he is not writing, he enjoys cooking, making art, or swooning in a nostalgic space with old Nigerian films. Timilehin is delighted to work with College Prep scholars and looks forward to supporting their goals.
