An update on HU alumna Jemimah Obileye.
By Keila Funez, Staff Writer
Jemimah Obileye graduated from Huntington University with a degree in Animation in May of 2019. She was an international student from Nigeria and is known by her friends for her good heart.
A month later after graduating, on June 26, Obileye started working at Sony Animation in Los Angeles, California. She started working with Daniel Evans for a month; he is also a HU grad with a degree in film. Now she is working as the Visual Development Coordinator in a possible upcoming movie. For now, she is the only one running the Art Department for the production of the movie.
Obileye is grateful for God providing a job and a place for her in such a short time.
“I am loving that God gave me the opportunity to try it,” Obileye said.
She is grateful that God is letting her experience a good job at LA. She definitely likes her job, and she is also open to try more things by God’s grace.
As someone that has always admired Obileye’s work, I am definitely looking forward to every project and sketch of hers.
I met Obileye my first day when I came to HU in the spring of 2018. She was in her junior year and she was my International Mentor. We became good friends and I roomed with her during her last year at HU. She is someone I admire a lot and she helped me grow in my relationship with God. She definitely is a gift from God to me, and I am sure she is for her other friends too.
I knew that Obileye was praying for God’s will to be done. I knew she was having faith for a job and she kept that faith. God is so faithful that He provided a good job for her and I know that He is going to take her further.
We may sometimes have a heart for something specific, but we have to keep in mind that God has better plans for us. He knows what is best for us and we need to have a willing heart to accept what is coming up next and be grateful for what we have now. But most importantly, let us not forget that when God opens a door, He will never close it.
