Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I love the family feel.
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
Tougaloo College provided me a gentle and accountable well rounded education. The lessons I learned like always keeping copies of important documents and always speaking to someone that you pass are still with me today!

"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?*
Dr. Olabode always told me that he expected so much out of me because I was somebody. This really comforted me because I was such a shy person. I always do my best and are comforted with his confidence in anything I ever do.
What sports do/did you play at your HBCU? What positions?
What sports and/or extra curricular activities did you do in High School? And why?
Basketball, Madrigals, Chorale, Band and Girl Scouts to socialize and make friends.
