2

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I attended a somewhat mixed high school where I was the minority.

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

I have really enjoyed growing and excelling at Claflin while I watched the school do the same.

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?*

My most influential professors would probably be Mr. Nsombi, Dr. Robin Davis, and Dr. Boyd.

Each of these professors are more than supportive to their students and challenge them to think and work harder. These are people I went to for advice, recommendations, and any help I needed. Even with their workload, I never saw these people genuinely unhappy.

6

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

I’ve always been more of a book person. Lol outside of dance team or step team I was more academic.

7

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

I’m a Asian food fanatic. Only 1 place serves real sushi. Tokyo Steak and Seafood. I also went to Golden China, and Wing Station. Cookouts the most budget friendly/best late night spot.

8

College crush?

I plead the fifth.
