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

I grew up in Decatur, GA and I have lived here for almost 30 years. I’ve known since the age of six that I wanted to go to Howard University. Both of my parents went there and I knew that’s where I wanted to go, so I did!

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

Prof. Rocki (I’m not sure if I’m remembering his name correctly) introduced me to someone in the Communications office one day and told that person that I was interested in radio and had a voice for radio (at the time my major was TV).

I remember thinking to myself that he must have been thinking of someone else! Don’t you know that an internship in radio with Pacifica Station WPFW with In the Public Eye, Inc. gave me my production bug that’s been eating at me ever since!
