Aisho Salim Ali
The Ohio State University
Aisho believes that leadership is the combination of unselfishness, character, and faith, and she learned these qualities within her family and her diverse neighborhood. Driven by her desire to serve and change underserved communities, Aisho became involved in the Columbus Ohio Leadership Academy and the Youth Leaders Summit. She joined the Teen Ambassador Board under Ohio’s Attorney General, founded her school’s UNICEF club, and served as secretary of the Key Club. Through these efforts, she fueled awareness and fundraising for the opioid epidemic in her state and support for children globally. A student council and class officer, Aisho excelled academically, and did all of this while working part time. From Columbus, Ohio, Aisho will attend The Ohio State University, and hopes to one day become a neurological surgeon.
