Co-founder and Executive Director
Joshua is a Global Teen Leader, social entrepreneur, environmental activist, international speaker, co-founder and Executive Director, and student at the University of Benin.
Joshua Oluwaseyi (He/Him) is a student studying Statistics at the University of Benin, Nigeria. Apart from devoting his time to running LearnBlue Global in the capacity of the Co-founder and Executive Director, Joshua worked as a Technical Advisor to Adam Bradford Agency. Earlier, he worked as a Social Media and Communications Manager and Brand Identity Consultant.
He was named a Global Teen Leader (GTL), 100 Most Influential Young Leader, and the UN MGCY Youth for Migration.
At the age of 18, Joshua co-pioneered a youth environmental sanitation and awareness, social media campaign and movement – #ForACleanerNation – which got featured on the BBC and Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
Joshua Oluwaseyi was the winner of the AdamStart Mentorship Challenge 2019 which granted him a 12-month long mentorship programme with the Queen’s Young Leader and Board Advisor of Queen’s Commonwealth Trust Fund. He worked as the SEO and Tech Support for Adam Bradford Agency, and earlier worked in the capacity of Communications Manager and In-country representative.
A 2019 Young Innovator by International Connector, he is also a Techie and past co-community Lead for the Facebook Developers Circle Lagos: StartUp Discovery.
He has also served as one of the panelists at the Teens Code Conference 2019 which saw over 1,000 teenagers get introduced to the technology. Joshua is a recipient of the YESA Award of Excellence in Entrepreneurship alongside many industry leaders in 2019 for his “outstanding contribution to youth development in Africa”.
He has previously worked with award-winning Teens Can Code Founder, Queen’s Young Leader, GESNU Alumnus and LEAP Africa fellow, Isaac Damian Ezirim, as a social media manager and co-founded the Efiwe.com.ng project, now Klevaly.com.
Joshua Oluwaseyi is quite literally obsessed with branding and identity, considering it’s taken about six iterations to arrive at that of his non-profit. A huge workaholic, Joshua can still be found working, even when he is not working. He firmly believes that every decision he makes or every activity he undertakes can considerably influence his work.
Otherwise, his hobbies vary from singing (to himself) to watching a myriad of shows simultaneously on Netflix, which he would argue is about every Gen-Zer’s hobby in 2020, and perhaps weirdly learning a new skill or googling and watching random YouTube tech related content.
