Don’t say that you miss me, just come get me 💫

A post shared by Yewande (@yewande_biala) on

 

Where did she go to college?

Yewande studied Biotechnology at the Athlone Institute of Technology from 2012 to 2016.

She later got her masters in Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance and Regulation at Dublin Institute of Technology from 2017 to 2018.

 

Where does she work?

She currently works as a Quality Assurance Specialist for Bristol-Myers Squibb.

It's a global biopharmaceutical company which focuses on discovering, developing and delivering innovative medicines for serious diseases.

She says people are often surprised by her career choice, ‘Every time I say that I’m a scientist, people are shocked.’

 

Is she on Instagram?

Yewande's social media following has grown considerably since she entered the Love Island Villa.

Her following jumped from 1,300 to 20,000 overnight from the reveal. She currently has over 147K followers.

What did she say in her pre villa interview?

Following a ‘horrible experience’ with a Tinder date, the Dubliner decided to give Love Island a go.

"There was a guy that I met on Tinder once who took me for drinks. I was a bit worried because I met him online and thought he might be a bit strange, let's just say my suspicious were right..."

 

Her ideal partner is tall and athletic with good banter however, she admits she's, 'a terrible flirt.'

'I’m such a girly girl and I can’t imagine stealing someone’s man in there. I don’t think I’d be that type but never say never.'

She says if she would give herself a 6.5 to a 7 out of 10, 'I always get complimented on my smile.'

However she admits, ‘I talk too much, I never stop talking and it gets me in trouble sometimes. I’m a tad dramatic and I can be lazy.’
