“I am proud to come from Nigeria and have a unique familial and cultural history,” Osho said. “My African heritage is part of who I am.”
Osho spent most of his childhood moving around the Richmond area. Though his family never left Texas, these moves exposed Osho to different and unique environments. “Looking back now, I think that experiencing so many diverse settings has allowed me to be successful at Texas A&M,” he said.
As a first-generation student with no one to guide him or provide advice about college, Osho was nervous to start school in College Station. However, after attending Fish Camp, his confidence and love for Texas A&M quickly grew. Returning to Aggieland after the four-day orientation, Osho remembers leaving with new friends and unforgettable memories.
“Fish Camp was my first introduction to the Aggie family,” he said. “My positive experience as a freshman is what inspired me to become a Fish Camp counselor and get involved on campus.”
In addition to his role with Fish Camp, Osho’s time at Texas A&M is interwoven with participation in organizations such as Connect, a community service and networking organization, and Legion, a men’s social organization. “My involvement on campus is, in part, what has made my time at Texas A&M so memorable,” said Osho, noting that these experiences have also helped him develop skills that will serve him well in his future career. “These organizations have allowed me to meet people that I would never normally get to meet.”
