Road to respect

For years, Chiamaka Obinna just wanted to fit in. Then, she discovered what she really wanted: to be taken seriously. The journey between these two goals took center stage while Obinna was at UW-Stevens Point. Now the senior majoring in sociology holds various leadership roles in student organizations and as a mentor. But to get there, she followed a winding road and persevered through challenges.
