Tomi Ajele



Tomi holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Mount Royal University and a Master’s in Public Policy from the University of Calgary.

While working in corporate communications roles, Tomi ventured into the world of freelance writing and began to explore advocacy through stories. This led to her publishing several personal essays and opinion pieces in the Huffington Post, the CBC, and a variety of other national outlets. In October 2020, Tomi and a group of artists launched Afros In Tha City Media - a collective dedicated to amplifying Black voices in Mohkínstis (Calgary).

Tomi’s work with Afros In Tha City grew her passion for advocacy and increased her desire to align with organizations that were in pursuit of a more equitable tomorrow. Tomi believes that positive change happens by amplifying the voices of those who have been systemically silenced, which is why she feels honoured to be part of the Apathy is Boring team.

“Apathy is Boring is telling young people and marginalized people that our voices matter. It's eliminating barriers to democratic participation and ensuring that those who are often silenced and overlooked get a say. I feel so incredibly grateful to be a part of that.”
