Thomas Awiapo Story Inspires Students

Thomas Awiapo impresses everyone he meets with his amazing story.

As part of a recent U.S. speaking tour, he stopped at Bellarmine College and talked to students about his childhood and escape from poverty.

On the Bellarmine website, junior Sebastian Ortega said: “Thomas Awiapo’s words touched my heart in a way that made me feel connected with him. I felt like he was my brother and for my brother to suffer like that, I am inspired to try my hardest to make a change in the lives of others.”
