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

Well I am from Hope Mills, NC. The movie “Drumline” introduced me to HBCU’s. I always heard my parents talk about North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University and Clark Atlanta University and always gave it the best impression that they were the best HBCU’s in the land. I ended up doing my research and fell in love with the history itself.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

igh school for me was a struggle. One of my best friends attended the school and told me how well she was doing there. I applied in the spring of 2011 and got accepted for fall 2011 admission. My HBCU has helped me find myself and what I am truly capable of doing.

I have maintained a cumulative grade point of 3.5 all three years thus far. I was going to transfer to a PWI but I didn’t want to risk my grades dropping not knowing how well I was going to do at another school.

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

It’s what you make it. I have came across a lot of opportunities thus far. Deep in my heart I love my HBCU and will continue to give them praise because this college gave me a chance to attend college and I am making it’s forefathers proud with all that I have accomplished thus far.
