Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I chose my HBCU because of its rich history. Also one of the many great things about Lane College is that it creates the true sense of Family.

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

As a freshman, I was a little apprehensive about attending Lane College because it was so close to home. Being the shy and timid person that I once was, it took me a while to adapt to the environment however after meeting a few very influential people, that soon changed. Before I knew it, I had come out of my shell.

Winning first runner up in the Miss Lane pageant as well as the Miss Black and Gold pageant in 2014 I had become a social butterfly. I also became an avid volunteer and was elected treasurer of my campuses NAACP chapter and Mass communications club.

Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*

The woman who inspired me the most was Mrs. Virginia Crump. A lady of many hats, and a force to be reckoned with, she motivated me to be all that I can be a true “mover and a shaker”. I could also never forget Mr. Kirkendoll,Dr. Jackson,Mr. Johnson and Ms. Graves.
