Michael Okunola

Hey, I’m Michael Okunola, and I’m in my 4th year majoring in Criminology at Laurier Brantford. This year, I’m the sports editor for the Sputnik. In my spare time, I like to work out at the gym, watch sports, and write articles on my blog (check out timelessthoughts.ca!). The news media is important to me because we provide information about almost anything that impacts people’s lives everywhere. If I can be a part of this in a positive way, then I am going to do everything I can to make it happen.
