Born in Bronx, NY, Oghenenyerovwo Okifo now hails from Naugatuck, CT and graduated from Naugatuck High School. With aspirations of becoming a neurologist, she is on the pre-med track with intentions of changing her major from Biological Sciences to Physiology and Neurobiology. Oghenenyerovwo has had several volunteer experiences that have shaped her desire to pursue this path. She describes her work at Hidden Acres Therapeutic Riding Center as peaceful and rewarding, her experience at Yale New Haven Hospital as humbling and empowering, and her efforts with a community-based church health fair as encouraging. Oghenenyerovwo is someone who chooses her words carefully, as she says that if she didn’t go into medicine she’d be a writer, an activity she loves. She’s interested in developing a unique, Victorian inspired style and writing a novel with memorable characters. She feels that writing intersects with neurology and psychology in that much of characterization deals with how people think and she’s fascinated by the human thought process.
