1

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

I grew up in the D.C. Metro area, and I had always known about HBCU’s but I hadn’t really planned to attend one over any other type of school in the beginning.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

When I visited the school, (Spelman), it just touched something in me and I felt like it was the only place I wanted to spend my college years in.

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

I love my school and I’m so glad we chose each other. The network of alumna is amazing and extremely helpful.

5

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

There were several professors that made a positive impression on me while I was there, but I think the person that left the most impact was Johnnetta B. Cole.

6

What sports do/did you play at your HBCU? What positions?

We attended events for Morehouse games also and the song ‘In The House” by Heavy D was popular in our freshmen year.

8

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

I was in the gospel choir and drill team of my high school and I did a lot of volunteering (before it was a requirement). I did those things because I enjoyed them, but I realize that extra-curricular activities can help “round out” your college applications.

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

There were local chicken and Chinese joints that we frequented, but I remember walking to Krispy Kreme at all times of the night. We walked in groups to be safe, but at some point during finals, someone would need a warm donut.

10

College crush?

There were so many…:-)
