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

Although I was born in Alabama I was reared in Misawa, Japan from the age of 7 until I graduated high school. Therefore, Misawa, Japan is home.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I chose an HBCU because I want to prove that HBCUs are just as qualified as PWIs. Not only is our foundation solid in the classroom, but our networking is endless and when you choose an HBCU you become part of a family

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

My HBCU experience can take days to write. So a synopsis would be an experience. Every day is just that an experience. It’s filled with love, laughter and life’s lessons.

The lessons I learn the things I begin to cherish can’t be taught in a classroom and I can promise I wouldn’t get it at a PWI. It’s an experience that can’t be mimicked and is hard to describe. It is BEAUTIFUL.

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?*

Dr. Michelle Foster, Dr. Robert White, & Dr. Pamela Tucker. Each of these individuals have taught me the importance of education, being exposed, having knowledge of self, and to dream in color.
