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

I am from Huntsville, AL but, currently live in Madison, Al. I joined Oakwood University church during the 40th anniversary of Breath of Life ministries. I received baptism on November 8, 2014 Sabbath. After joining , I decided to transfer to Oakwood to finish my education at a Christian institution. It is a great school for anyone!

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

It was more convenient for me and closer to home. I just think it has more to offer for minorities not just African Americans. I do want to attend Loma Linda university Medical school after graduation.
