Name: Ololade Olasanoye
Field of Study: Business
I am Ololade Olasanoye, I was born in Lagos, Nigeria. I came to Gallaudet University to attend the English Language Institute in Spring 2012. I started my undergraduate studies in the Fall of 2012. I am currently a Junior studying business administration. I am expecting to graduate in May 2017. My academic goal is to earn a BS degree with honors. My hobbies are reading, traveling and cooking.
After graduation, my goal is to become the manager of a business or organization for deaf youth because where I grew up, there is a lack of support for deaf children from their parents. I have decided that I will set up an organization for deaf youth. From there, the youth will be able to have some opportunity to go to school, receive vocational training and more.
I truly thankful to Nippon Foundation for giving me this scholarship to continue my education at Gallaudet university. Without them, I would be unable to complete my education. Thank You!
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
