Jennine Nwoko is currently a 2L at Loyola Law School. Born and raised in Helsinki, Finland, Jennine, who is Finnish-Nigerian, also lived in Kenya and India during her childhood years. Not sure about where she wanted to live, she traveled to about 30 countries before finding her current home, Los Angeles, California about five years ago. Jennine is a proud SMC and UCLA alumna, and worked in various leadership positions, including: Commissioner of Publicity of the Associated Students, President of the Pan-African Student Association, and event co-chair of the Black Pre-Health Organization.
Jennine is passionate about international human rights and education reform. During the summer before law school, she raised money for a non-profit organization and traveled to a township in Cape Town, South Africa to teach third and sixth graders. This meaningful experience was a catalyst for a project that she is working on with her sister, a non-profit that helps young girls in Africa gain education.
Before law school, Jennine worked in managerial positions in sales and started her own fitness company. She hopes to be a successful corporate lawyer, and couple the access that affords with work on important international human rights issues. Jennine is happy to be bring her vast event planning experience to PILF. She is excited to work as an Auction Chair and help make this year’s PILF Auction the latest in a long line of memorable ones.
