Growing up, I always had it. My own worse skin diseased enemy. Having it was a fact of life – I could not change and I knew this, however every time I looked in the mirror I hated the person I saw staring back at me.

One of Texas A&M’s core values is selfless serving, which drew me to this university. Through several different organizations, I have been able to use whatever free time I have over to those who need it. During Spring Break, I volunteered with Alternative Spring Break to travel to New Orleans, Louisiana to help out Animal Rescue New Orleans with various volunteer activities that benefited not only the people working there, but the animals as well. Every year, I volunteer for the Big Event which gives students of Texas A&M the ability to give thanks to the residents...

324 Words
One of the most important things I have learned since coming to Texas A&M, is the enormous impact the Aggie Spirit has on the 12th Man, even those that are not a part of the Aggie student body. Since attending here, I have met people who always try to go out of their way to help a fellow classmate or a teacher that genuinely tries to get to know their students (even in the large classes). The Aggie Spirit takes the dreams and imaginations of current students and changes them into reality. I have traveled to my current hometown...

Growing up, my mother taught my siblings and me the values that made up a Nigerian household and the most important rule: always respect ones parents.
