BITA OKOYE.pngTabita graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a BA in Communications and a BS in Political Science. Her goal is to work for the United States government or the United Nations. Tabita is dedicated to paying it forward since she wants to reciprocate the generosity that was shown and given to her. She believes making a difference begins at home so before helping the world, she wants to give back to her community as an AmeriCorps Y.O.U.th Serve member. Tabita wants to continue her education in the future and earn a JD and an MBA. On a personal level, she is known as a “spoiler” since she watches television shows and then spoils it for those who aren't caught up. She also loves to sing, read, write, watch and play sports, travel, and experience different cultures.
