What They’ve Said.

Process clarifies potential. I’m a living work in progress.

Ten years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Profit when he approached the Sigma Table at the MCAE kickoff the first week of college. After joining Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. the second semester of his freshman year in the Spring 2011, three months into the organization, Profit was already holding a national position in the organization as the International Collegiate Member at Large. He concurrently served as Chapter President for the local chapter—Pi Eta. He took the chapter to new heights through the experience gained from serving on the General Board. In 2013, he was elected by the Brotherhood as the International 2nd Vice President of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., a position which made him the 3rd most powerful Sigma in the fraternity. He had the opportunity to lead the whole brotherhood into the organizations Centennial Year. I’ve had the opportunity to see him receive high praise from brothers all across the world, old and young, thanking him for his hard work and dedication to our organization. Words cannot express how proud I am of Profit Idowu. He always finishes what he starts and finishes it well! Profit represents Minnesota with class, honor, and respect. The sky is the limit for this young professional.

Profit Idowu! Many great things can be said about this young and aspiring individual. I have had multiple opportunities to witness Profit’s innate ability to succeed in many situations and environments. From his days as a high school student to an accomplished University Undergraduate, he displays intelligence through determination, fervent focus and strong work ethic. There are those who are destined to succeed; and there are those who are determined to succeed. Profit is both.

Profit is an outstanding individual in many ways, and his strengths quickly come to the surface! He is a talented speaker and presenter, he is enthusiastic in his efforts, he naturally encourages and recognizes talent in others, and he is skilled in building community and connection. Beyond all this, however, I found Profit to be VERY OPEN to feedback and guidance. On more than one occasion, he jumped on opportunities for growth and achievement that I mentioned to him in passing, and his initiative took me by surprise. Profit is self-reflective, driven, compassionate, and would be an asset to any team.

Profit is a self-made man with ambition like no other. One of his greatest qualities is punctuality. Rest assured that the job will get done in his hands. He has the ability to produce results in a timely fashion while possessing creativity like no other—a combination not found in many.

It is a long established fact that twitter fingers aren’t always nice. In this case, I’m glad they are.
