Destiny Osagie

Class of 2020-2021

Xavier University of Louisiana, 2020
Biological Sciences

Why I chose ESTEEM:

I chose ESTEEM because I have always had an interest in business and this program allows me to combine my science background with the field of business.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it:

For my capstone project I am working with RLAC on a lung cancer project to increase the amount of people having LDCT screenings for early detection of lung cancer and increasing awareness for these screenings. I am excited about this project because many ESTEEM alum have put in lots of work to this project to the point where it is today and I am the person who will be able to execute an initiative to solve the problem.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM, I hope to join corporate America and be a voice for people of color, especially black women like myself.

What I like to do when I'm not working:

I love to read! I also enjoy lots of shopping and watching foreign films.
