Temitope Sevezun Toyon is a nutritionist, a public health enthusiast and a Leverhulme Scholar studying  for a DPhil in Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation at the University of Oxford. Her research focuses  on the transgenerational transmission of poverty and social inequality, while exploring the interplay of  Food security, Nutrition, Obstetrics, Paediatrics and Neuroscience. She is particularly passionate about  the effect of dietary quality during pregnancy on fetal brain development and corresponding later life neurodevelopment including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity  Disorder (ADHD). She currently serves as the Vice President of the St. Hilda’s College Middle Common  Room (MCR) and is also the Postgraduate Research representative for the Social Sciences Division at  the Oxford Student Union.

Temitope holds a first-class BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics from Bells University, Nigeria, where she  graduated top of class. She earned a Master’s in Public Health degree with specialism in Data Science  from the University of Glasgow, Scotland where she served as the President of the Nigerian Students’ Society (NSS) at the University of Glasgow. Temitope is the Founder of FOR YOUR SMILE, a Christian non-governmental organization in Nigeria that is geared towards reaching out to children in villages  and rural areas, focusing on the gospel, education, and welfare. Although the name FOR YOUR SMILE describes the genuine passion on which the initiative was established, “That eagles receive their first  push from us” is the mantra that fuels the daily giant strides taken. Over the past 5 years since its  inception, the outreach has reached out to over 1,500 children in rural Lagos and Ogun states, with  food items, meals, beverages, stationeries, textbooks, bags, first aid, bibles, and devotionals.

Temitope currently serves as the Program Coordinator for the Oxford Africa  Conference 2024 Committee and is enthusiastic about charting Africa’s path forward.
