Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I live minutes away from Rutgers, I wanted the opportunity to get away from an area I already knew & take the opportunity to learn about myself & my people. I didn’t want to be just a “number” at a pwi. I wanted to know my classmates, my professors, my dean of the school, & I got just that.


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

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I graduated from such a prestigious school such as Hampton. I am the first grand & great grandchild to graduate from a 4-Year school as well as hold a graduate degree. I take pride in that. I had the opportunity to meet lifelong friends, travel & participate in a sport that I love (Cheerleading), learn so much about myself while gaining an invaluable education. We call Hampton our “Home by the Sea” & it’s really just


"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*



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

I owe that to all of my professors. Dean Credle has created a phenomenal program & all of the professors, Dr. Hayes, Dr. Beale, Dr. Sharad, Dr. McLain, Dr. Coronel, & professor Maghear have helped implement those key values. They have allowed us to create relationships with them where we can ask any questions & receive adequate answers. I can describe how they do it specifically, but just know they do it well!
