WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
“The scholarships have enabled me to focus on my education and my athletics without having to work a job on the side to pay for my living and athletic expenses.”
Early mornings, late nights. Training, practices and bus rides. Being a student athlete is demanding and time-consuming; public health student and track team member, Amaka Ashiofu wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Being a student athlete has made me a better student and athlete,” she says. “Having practices every day as well as carrying a full course load has really strengthened my ability to prioritise.”
It’s a skill she will carry with her into her career. “My long-term goal is to become a public health nurse so I can help treat people while promoting the principles of public health.”
