Michael Oshindoro

"I am grateful to the Tejumola Olaniyan family for creating the Tejumola Olaniyan International Student Travel Award. Because of the award and the travel in the summer of 2022, I have a clearer direction for my research and am poised to take my preliminary exam as a third-year Ph.D. student and look forward with confidence to crafting a viable dissertation proposal as I anticipate becoming a dissertator."
