Speaking further, Alozie who revealed that growing up in the United States made it easier for her to combine cancer research and playing football.
She added that people she thinks people who always asked her how she combines football and her job as a lab technician are confused, because, according to her, she’s used to ‘living two lives.
She said, “I think people are confused when they ask me about my time management, but if you think about it, especially here in the States, it’s kind of something that we’ve done most of our lives, kind of just balancing academic life and athletics.
“And so I think that like just my role coming from the college level and even club level. When I was a teenager, I just got used to living two lives, basically. That’s kind of what I still do now.”
“I am just so thankful about working with Dr. Stephens in her lab at Texas Children’s. She is just so fluid with the time that I am able to come in because it is a really crazy schedule, so I am really thankful that she is able to work around my schedule.”
