Meet Eden Obodum
Q & A
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and why?
If I was a superhero, my superpower would be flight! Aside from avoiding traffic, I would love to have the ability to see things from a different perspective than most other people.
What does innovation mean to you?
Innovation is the willingness to think differently and to appreciate the diversity of ideas, applying thought synergistically to solve problems and to help people. Innovation is not always in the form of a new product or service; it may be more abstract and along the lines of efficiency rather than tangibility.
What was your favorite toy as a kid?
I did not have a specific, concrete favorite toy as a child. Rather, my brothers and I imagined everything we wanted to play with or play in: cars, houses, families, societies; if our brains could imagine it, it immediately became our favorite concept. While I have grown, the magnitude of my imagination is ever-present, and I hope it never disappears. Particularly in the world of innovation, I believe that imagination, combined with a certain degree of effort and practicality, assists in benefitting the world.
Where is your favorite place on
campus and why?
My favorite place on campus is Davis Library! There's so much space to work and learn!
