My name is Olufisayo Awolaja, and I am a junior at the University of Northern Colorado. I am currently majoring in Biology with an emphasis in pre-health sciences. It is an aspiration of mine to become a medical professional and use my skill set to assist those around me. I grew up with two sisters in Thornton, Colorado. I have participated in an internship at Children’s Hospital Colorado, and I also volunteer at the Northern Colorado Medical Center. I am excited to be a part of the McNair family!
