My name is Olusegun, but my friends call me Segun. I am from Ekiti State in Nigeria. I came to America to attend Gallaudet University, Gallaudet University is a home for deaf education where America Sign language is being used in the classroom.

I am a Master of Public Administration student currently. I plan to work with and for deaf people in the management field and inspire them to expose their talents and use them to promote success for other deaf people. Because with God, all things are possible.

I want to use this opportunity to thank the Nippon Foundaion for the Sasakawa International Scholarship (SIS). With the Scholarship I am able to focus on my studies for excellent grades. Their financial generosity has inspired me to have the desire to continue helping others and give back to the community. I believe, by the grace of God, I will help other students to achieve their educational goals when the time comes. Once again, thanks to the Nippon Foundation.
