Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
Im from Little Rock , Arkansas and I was introduced to HBCUs when I was in high school. My senior year, I took an African American History class and my teacher encouraged all the seniors to look into attending HBCUs. Her very persuasive approach led me into looking at Howard University , Spelman College and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I choose my HBCU over a pwi because I attended a high school that was mostly Caucasian . I longed to attend a university that would expand my knowledge and have respect for my culture . My HBCU has an abundance of nationalities and cultures. Although being an hbcu, my university is wildly diverse. Everyone’s culture and ways of life is learned here and greatly respected.
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
My experience at UAPB has been amazing. I attend an university that is in a small city in Arkansas. When people hear about my university , they always have something negative to say . “Oh, you go there? Is it true this..” or ” I heard they don’t have this …” but, I have to say that I attend a very treasured and astounding institution.
"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*
A first time experience at my hbcu would be washing my own clothes ????
Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*
Ms.Bradley is my career development professor and she has impacted my life by teaching me how to create a professional resume and how to ensure that you get a job.
What sports do/did you play at your HBCU? What positions?
I am a member of the UAPB Coed Cheer team.
