1

Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*

I’m from the great city of Atlanta, GA. I was probably hearing about HBCUs in the womb. We have more HBCU graduates than PWI graduates in my family.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I chose an HBCU because I’ve been going to “historically black” schools my entire life (I’m talking pre-school through high school) and I couldn’t see myself not going to an HBCU.

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

My experience was awesome. I had some of the best professors/professionals in the field teaching me how to perfect my craft. I was in the School of Journalism & Graphic Communication. This school has won just about every journalism award a college could win, for print and broadcast. Not to mention, the gem that is PRodigy Public Relations Firm (on Facebook). I wouldn’t trade my experience for anyone else’s.

4

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

N/A

5

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

Like most schools, we were required to do internships just about every year. We also had to shadow professionals in our field. Those required experiences along with the high level of expectation from my professors made it easy to go to the workforce post-graduation.

6

What sports and/or extra curricular activities did you do in High School? And why?

I was in the art club, math club, and a few things I can’t remember. I didn’t do a lot because I figured I would save all of my energy for college.

7

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

O’leans. Hands down. You get a refrigerator of food on your plate for a few bucks.

8

College crush?

Ch… Next question.
