Greetings! My name is Brigette Obokhae and I am a graduate of Spelman College, Class of 2011. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, but I currently reside in Houston. I am a first year medical student, but I took a non-traditional route which allowed me to obtain my Master of Science in Biology Medical Sciences and have a rewarding career in clinical research for nearly 8 years prior to entering medical school. I truly enjoy giving back and serving my community through organizations that focus on uplifting the Black community and empowering youth.
