Hannah's primary responsibility is to develop and oversee high-quality daily after-school & summer programs using innovative strategies to best engage students towards academic and personal well-being success.

Hannah Akpaete

Student U Associate Director of Middle School Programming

Hannah's Why:

I value community, loyalty, and justice. I believe that we grow and learn exponentially about ourselves while in community. We are a force when we are together. I chose to invest in Student U because we are committed to supporting not only each student’s academic and personal journey but also their family and the Durham community we live in.

Hannah outside of Student U:

Outside of Student U I spend tons of time with my loved ones, going bachata dancing, and participating in outdoor activities.
