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

I was Born and raised in Norfolk, VA. I was introduced to HBCUs at a young age because of the location of Norfolk State University. My parents used to take me to the football games on Saturdays and that's where I found my life for the atmosphere.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I chose a HBCU because I wanted to be around people I could emotionally and socially connect with.

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

My HBCU experience has been great thus far. I have met life-Long friends and I've built a network that nearly guarantees success post-graduation.


"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

My first taste of an HBCU was in August of 2014. I arrived to the campus as a blind freshman, not knowing what to expect. Band camp was horrific considering the fact that it was 16 hours a day for 6 consecutive days.


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

My Accounting Professor Dr. Beckwith has helped me with understanding nearly all of my major classes. Although none of my professors had a direct impact on my life outside of Shaw University, Professor Beckwith is making sure I walk that stage on time.
