Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

Choosing FAMU gave me more than a degree; I received an experience.

As a young adult, there are many crucial decisions that are made during your college years, and attending an HBCU gave me a sense of family and comfort.

I felt that my fellow classmates and colleagues genuinely wanted to see me succeed, and I learned life lessons that were invaluable.

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

I earned my Doctorate of Pharmacy as well as my Letters (Delta Sigma Theta) from FAMU.

As a result I was able to have a life long network of fellow alumni and sorors as well as mentors and mentees.

While I was enrolled, my family business Dr.Nettles Beauty also began, and I was able to build a thriving company that offers holistic and natural beauty products.

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

My first FAMU homecoming was one to remember.

From the World Famous Marching 100, to the vendors, to the greek events, it's such a joyous occasion, and an amazing opportunity to see the past, present, and future students of the school all at the same time.

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

My pharmacy professors served as vessels of knowledge and life lessons.

They were highly educated, professional, and sincerely cared about their students making a difference in the world.
