Maryjane Okonji

Class of 2019

My name is Maryjane Okonji. I am currently a student enrolled at The Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, Maryland. This year I am enrolled in Advanced Placement and Honors courses. During my free time, I enjoy reading fiction novels, riding my bike, being with my friends, and helping out my community in any way that I can. I also occasionally play the saxophone and piano during my free time.

I am currently an altar server at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. and have been an altar server there since the sixth grade. I have been altar serving since fifth grade at St. Bartholomew Church. I volunteer at DC Central Soup Kitchen, St. Bartholomew Assisted Living House and The Interfaith Women’s Shelter. I’m an active member of the Best Buddies Club, Stay Golden, Diversity Club/Committee, Paws for a Cause, and Math Club. I participate in Varsity Volleyball and Varsity Softball and I am also team captain for both sports. I am a Student Ambassador Leader at the Connelly School of the Holy Child and have been one since Sophomore year.

I’m excited to work and learn more during this IBIP program. It will be an amazing and new experience that I and my peers will be able to be a part of. I hope that the IBIP program will help me make an impact on many lives and not just a few. This is experience is one that many people my age do not get to take a part in and I am very blessed and grateful to be a part of something so great at such a young age.

Jaiyele Hampton

Class of 2019

My name is Jaiyele Hampton and I attend Connelly school of the Holy Child. Two characteristics that would describe me best are generosity and devotion to certain things. I enjoy giving people in need the items they need to go on with their lives because it hurts to see them suffering while others are thriving. Also when I begin certain things that I care about I must finish them because I am devoted to them.

Some activities I partake at school in are diversity club, my own club called Voice for the Voiceless, soccer, and track. Activities I do outside of school are: reading in on current events, being in Jack & Jill of America, and learning other ways I can better myself. Also, I am very interested in animal science, so over the years, I have attended veterinary and stem camps at multiple colleges such as Tuskegee University, Clemson University, and the University of South Carolina.

I am very excited to join IBIP, so I can bring my ideas to the table and hear other teammates ideas, and finally help others who might not be as blessed as most people.
