1. Name: Adebayo Braimah
 
2. Major: Chemistry
 
3. Year: Senior
 
4. Hometown: Liberal, Kansas
 
5. What are three things you want to do before you graduate? Read ALL my textbooks cover-to-cover, present my research at a national conference and study abroad/do an REU over the summer.
 
6. If you could be anyone in the world, who would it be and why? I would be Neil deGrasse Tyson, because he’s a spokesperson for all. 
 
7. If you won the lottery, what would you do first? I would pay my tuition and my student loans.
 
8. What is your favorite memory at KU so far? My favorite memory is running on the new track at Rock Chalk Park during the Kansas Relays in 2014.
 
 
9. Where do you see yourself five years from now? Hopefully I will be going to either graduate school or medical school and doing research in the biomedical field.
 
10. Why do you think you deserve the title of Mr. KU? I think I represent the diversity of KU and would be a good representative of our school. I also think I can bring about more awareness of testicular cancer through the pageant, and hopefully inspire people to do research or contribute to cancer research in someway.
