My name is Adaugo Azuonwu and I am originally from Nigeria. I came to the USA to attend college in 2013. I am currently a student at West Virginia University, Morgantown where I study pharmacy. I did pre-pharmacy for two years, before getting into pharmacy school in 2015. Per my personality, I am reserved and like to do things by myself. Also, I love to have a good time with close friends.
I served as a student volunteer for service learning activities across high schools and middle schools in West Virginia. I was responsible for educating the students on topics of drugs abuse, sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy prevention, in order to create awareness on these issues. I had to develop and deliver several presentations to the students, using powerpoint slides, videos, and pictures. The goal was to educate the students on these topics, in order to fulfill some of the Healthy people 2020 objectives.
