What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*

he story of my “HBCU Experience” is one of student leadership and success.

I have always been an outspoken and heavily devoted person to whatever I put my heart into, but Central State helped me tremendously by giving me an outlet to do what comes natural to me.

There are so many opportunities at Central State for you to shine and be a leader and become the light that helps guide the next generations, and my experience has taught me that you must follow before you can lead and that everything happens in due time.

Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*

Mr. Williams is the law professor at Central State University and also the advisor over the Pre-Law Society which I have been a member of since the beginning of my journey at Central State.

his incredible man has not only pushed me to always do my best when it comes to academics but he has also sharpened my professional demeanor and helped me propel myself to the next level when it comes to ambition and drive.
