Olisa was appointed to the Board in 2010!

Although moving to the Edenwald Housing Projects in 1997 was a major move for Olisa and her family, one thing that always stayed consistent was the importance of education no matter where they went. Olisa began high school at Evander Childs in 1999 where, after a routine visit to the school's College Advisor in 2003, she was introduced to the Juanita James Scholarship Foundation. That same year, she became one of the two recipients of the scholarship and started her freshman year at Baruch College in the Fall. In 2006, after completing a major in Computer Information Systems and a minor in Psychology, she graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration. Not entirely sure of the career she wanted to pursue, Olisa made up her mind to go to graduate school and was accepted to her alma mater for the Fall 2007 semester. Although it was a challenging journey, Olisa graduated with a Master of Business Administration in June 2009. In July 2009, Olisa began working as a freelance Web Consultant. She was hired by the Juanita James Scholarship Foundation to design, develop and manage this website and hopes it will be the start of a very successful and rewarding career. In January 2010, Olisa began working at Professional Business College teaching a variety of college-level business courses. Although it is a great challenge, Olisa is very grateful for the opportunity to work with students and to impress upon them the importance of education.
