Buku is part of the marketing team at Adidas and constantly aims to bridge the gap between possibility and reality. She describes herself as a leader who inspires others to pursue their dreams of turning their passion into a lifestyle. This is not only evident in her relationships with people, but also in her work.

As part of her dedication to helping others Buku created the “My Passion, My Life,” scholarship which provides opportunities to students with internships. She awarded her first scholarship recipient Kailyn with $1000 so that she could relocate to New York for her internship at advertising agency Droga5. Buku realized how fortunate she was to be able to relocate for her internships in the past and wanted to give others a chance to do the same.

Buku is a radiant woman who brings her positivity with her everywhere she goes so if you’d like to learn more about her, please visit
