Meet Obaloluwa: A Dorson Scholar

Meet Obaloluwa!

He is one of our more outspoken students. Despite being a new student in America, he's adjusted well to the culture, especially among his Dorson peers. Oba, as he's more affectionately known, has big dreams of becoming a Business administrator.

What are some of your hobbies?

Sleeping, listening to music and watching Netflix.

What genre of music do you like?

Trap and classical music.

What is your favorite movie?

I do not have one. Who is your favorite actor/artist/celebrity? Why?

DDG. He is a rapper and a YouTuber. I like him because he is funny.

If you use social media, which is your most preferred?

I use Instagram the most.

Cake or ice cream?

I prefer Ice cream.

Would you like to live to 100? Why or why not?

No, I would not because I feel like at some point you get tired of life but I want to get to at least the age of 80.

If you won 1 million dollars today, what would you do with it?

I will buy a house and whatever is left will be kept in a savings account.

If you could choose a superpower, what would you choose?

I will want to have control over the four elements.

Who/What is your inspiration? Why?

I will say my dad. The reason being he always tries his best to make sure my mom, my brother and I are always in good shape even at his own expense.

If you could send a message to your 30 year old self, what would it be?

I will probably ask are we crazy rich and also tell him that no matter what he should make sure he takes good care of his kids and not make stupid decisions.

What are your three greatest takeaways from the Dorson Scholars Program after completing year one?

I will say it helps me get to know people and teaches me how to gain information when needed. I won't consider this a take away but the essay class was really important to me because I am bad at writing essays and also the resume class.
