Year in Review

[ “Year in Review”  is where you should reflect on the past year and show how you have evolved as a person and as a student.  You may want to focus on your growth in a particular area (as a leader, scholar, researcher, etc.) or you may want to talk about your overall experience over the past year.  For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


[ “G.O.A.L.S.” is a place where students write about how their planned, current, and future activities may fit into the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement.

Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc .

For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.
Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.

About Me

My name is Olivia Anike, and I am a student of the class of 2021 of The Ohio State University. I am from a small town called Lima, Ohio and attended a high school that was not even a fraction of the size of OSU.


Throughout my life, I have always had a deep appreciation for education and an interest in learning that was instilled in me by my family. During school, I enjoyed a variety of subjects including science, english, spanish, and music. I participated in Choir for 7 years, and was heavily involved in Spanish Club for 4 years. I also was a member of color guard in the marching band for 3 years, and the National Honor Society. All activities and extracurriculars that I was apart of taught me important lifelong skills such as teamwork, service, responsibility, composure, and leadership.


However, my greatest academic interest was definitely science, which has inspired me to strive for a career in the medical field, along with a strong desire to help people and improve the quality of life for others. It also prompted me to major in Biology and join the Biological Sciences Scholars here at The Ohio State University, which I am apart of today. Another strong academic interest of mine that has kept me passionate about language and culture is Spanish, which is why I chose it as a minor.


I hope to take advantage of any positive opportunities that I am able to, such as research, to expand my knowledge and build my way into a science-based career. I am very excited to begin this new chapter of my life here at The Ohio State University, because I know I will enhance my passions, educate myself further, have extraordinary experiences and make outstanding memories.
