Obinna Onyeali
Denver Scholarship Foundation


Born and raised in the beautiful state of Colorado, Obinna has always had compassion to help and support others in any way. At a young age, he had the opportunity to connect and communicate to the world of service through the work in nonprofit organizations in both the United States and in his parents’ home country of Nigeria. The drive to connect and reach out the community stuck with him through his college years at the University of Colorado Boulder where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Communication. Through his many years in higher education, he realized he wanted to connect with students earlier on in their academic career.  Now serving as the TRIO College Advisor for the Montbello Campus, he can support and encourage student to pursue whatever dream they have planned for themselves. Having the opportunity to work with not just seniors but also students from freshmen to junior year is truly an honor for him.
