MEET AN ALA ALUMNA
Are you an aspiring doctor? ALA has a place for you. Meet Titilayo Mabogunje from Lagos, Nigeria, a young leader who assumed various leadership roles during her time at ALA. She was the Secretary of the Student Government from November 2014 to April 2015. The large responsibility of the office required her to communicate with students in order to bridge the gap between them and the administration.
She is currently pursuing her undergraduate degree at Yale University, a prospective Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology major. Titilayo is also passionate about the arts and through her love of spoken word poetry; she runs a Poetry Summer Camp for teens in Nigeria. She aspires to be a medical doctor so she can influence the world through the health sector.
