Mimi Akintunde-Nieves, Social Media Director

Mimi Akintunde-Nieves is a senior at DGS and the Social Media Director for the Blueprint. Akintunde is the captain on her varsity tennis team. She is the Vice-president of National Honors Society, a PE and Peer leader, leader for Operation Snowball and Mad Dash director.

Akintunde volunteers with Chicago Cares and advocates for the Black Lives Matter movement. As of 2020, Mimi was appointed into the National Honor Society of Torch and Laurel, an honors program developed by National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) that recognizes high achievers in high school. They provide them motivation, inspiration and vital tools on creating an ideal future for themselves.

In the future Akintunde is looking to attend school on the west coast and study psychology and communications. She hopes to have a career that allows her to focus on her passion: free mental health care.

In her free time, Akintunde enjoys hanging out with her friends and family. She loves to work with her dad on his art projects around the city of Chicago. Her favorite show is “The Bachelor” and she loves going on sushi dates with her friends.
