Oliver Opokui - The Netherlands
is from The Netherlands. Oliver came to Green River Community College (GRCC) in the spring of 2012. He is a transfer student majoring in Business and Marketing. His goal is to attend UCLA and work in the entertainment industry.
"I came to Green River because I can go anywhere from here. It all depends on how hard I work." Oliver heard great things about GRCC from Kilroy Education in Denmark.
"It has always been my dream to come to America. If you want to achieve something in life, there are no limits here."
In the short time that Oliver has been at GRCC he has become very involved on campus. He has created videos to market programs and more recently he has been interviewed by the Mayor of Kent on local television.
"Green River is a great place to study. You get to meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures. Having no family around, forces you to develop yourself and learn more about who you are," said Oliver.
GRCC students, including Oliver Opoku, talk about studying at Green River Community College with the Mayor of Kent.
