Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
I'm from Washington D.C, I did my research on my own.
"In college you have to have discipline."
Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I believe HBCU's teach African-Americans that it is ok to have something of your own and that a higher education can be given by your own people
"I believe HBCU's teach African-Americans that it is ok to have something of your own..."
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
When I first stepped on Campus, I could feel the rich history and power of my people. A higher education and the pride of my people was rich.
"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*
My first time not having my mom wake me up for class lol. In college you have to have discipline.
Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*
Too many to name and some of deceased, I wish I could thank them for helping me become who I am.
