Meet Yori Ogunnaike, 2020 VetsWork AmeriCorps Intern!

by | VetsWork

My name is Yori. I was born and raised in Nigeria. When I was sixteen I moved to America. My uncle in Virginia adopted me, and that’s where I ended up continuing my homeschool education. After graduating from high school, I moved to Tennessee to attend college. After one semester, I decided to join the Army.

After serving eight years in the Army, I decided to get out and finish school; I wanted to do something more for my community and myself. I graduated this past December of 2019 with a degree in applied sciences with a focus on unmanned aerial systems. I hope to be able to use the knowledge that I’ve gained so far to make a difference in other peoples lives.
