Tayo Rockson is a cultural chameleon. Growing up in a globalized life as a TCK, or “third culture kid”, his passport country is Nigeria, but he has lived between (and adapted the accents of) multiple places, including Burkina Faso, Sweden, New York, and Vietnam. Tayo has become an expert at adjusting to the nuances of new cultures and pushing through the challenges of always feeling like the person who stuck out.
Tayo also shares with us what inspired him to create UYD University, an online university for travelers and future global leaders that makes travel and leadership training accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Classes serve a wide range of students, including millennials wanting to travel, business people developing global leadership capacities, internationals living in the US, and more!
UYD University will be launching soon, so check out the course catalog or check out the links below for more information.
