“Psychology is my major. I was a Biology major and it didn’t go well for me, and I realized I like to talk to people. As well as, figure out why they act a certain way, and I realized psychology would be a perfect major for me.”

How did you decide to become a student at Spelman College?

I decided to become a student at Spelman because it was my number 1 choice. The sisterhood is one of a kind. Coming from a family of all boys, a sister was well needed. I decided when I got the acceptance letter and thanked God for the faith I held on to.

 

How did you overcome your nervousness about going to college?

I was never nervous to begin with. I always wanted to leave my home state which is NY and adventure out to another state for college.

After living here all my life, I knew I needed to be somewhere totally different. I had my family for support so I fit right in after they left.

 

What is your major? and Why did you choose it?

Psychology (Spelman Alum Psych. Majors) is my major. I was a Biology major and it didnt go well for me, and I realized I like to talk to people. As well as, figure out why they act a certain way, and I realized psychology would be a perfect major for me.

What to date has been your proudest moment @ Spelman College?

My proudest moment has been accomplishing my goal my sophomore year. My goal was to get at least a 3.0 or above 2011 spring semester. I finished with a 3.2.

 

How are you positively active on campus? (e.g. clubs, SGA, etc.)

I was apart of the Mime Ministry for my freshman year and I plan to join again my junior year. I plan to join many other clubs this year as well.

 

Where is the “yard” located?

Some say its where Market Friday is located. Market Friday is where a lot of the vendors in Atlanta come out and sell their products. We also have a DJ. Its really interesting.

 

How many “firsts” have you had at college ? What are they? (e.g. first road trip, first job interview, first love, first “F or A”, etc.)

I had a few firsts. I got my first F, I was so upset. My parents wanted to kill me, but I didnt give up, I stuck it out, and it became an A by the end of the following semester.
