Hello, My name is Oyinda Balogun. My parents are Nigerian hence the name. I am a graduate student at the University of Maine, looking to get a masters degree in international relations. I would one day like to work for an organization that deals with influencing policies in the lives of women and children around the world. In the meantime, I work with Upward Bound, and I hope to bring some kind of long-lasting positive energy to not just my co-workers but the students as well.
