Toyin Koleoso

Toyin is in her second year as a junior at O’Neal from Nigeria and is in the class of 2018. Her host family is Mr. and Mrs. Charlie McHarney and children O’Neal Falcons Caelan ’22 and Callie ‘27. She is from Lagos, the largest city in Nigeria, and she has a brother who is thirteen and two sisters, ages 12 and 15.

Toyin plays on the School’s volleyball and basketball teams, runs on the track team, and sings in the chorus. After she graduates from O’Neal she would like to study accounting while playing college basketball. Toyin plans to attend college in the United States and is actively pursuing her options.

When she’s not at O’Neal, Toyin likes to sing and write songs as well as chat with friends here and back home. Though she misses the food and her family in Lagos, she has noticed that the biggest difference between the United States and back home is the way in which Americans communicate, particularly in the classroom. In the US, teachers encourage students to ask questions during class. Back home, asking questions is not encouraged.
