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



Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*



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

My “experience” at Prairie View A&M University is that of growth and motivation. I grew as a man in many ways in this environment (the “dirty South”) that I truly believe I wouldn’t of experienced had I stayed in the Midwest. I learned that a real man works hard no matter what the circumstances may be, that humbly serving your community reaps long-term rewards, and that patience is truly a virtue.

The other part of my experience, motivation, stems from the love I received from my closest friends and the three “baby” cousins in my family. Whenever I felt like giving up due to the natural stresses of college, my true friends wouldn’t let me stop. My cousins also needed another example of what it means to be a black man, despite what society may think a black man should be.


"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*



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

George E. Brown (Ph.D., distinguished professor) and Harriette Howard-Lee Block (Ph.D., Department Head) are probably two of the smartest people I’ve known to date. Their passion for teaching young black students the sciences and their determination to see us succeed is a rare gift that I was blessed to receive.


What sports and/or extra curricular activities did you do in High School? And why?

I was a four-sport athlete (football, baseball, basketball, and track), and I was also involved in the school orchestra (cello). I loved being physically and mentally active and my parents encouraged such activities.


Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

I never knew Chick-Fil-A existed until I got to Texas, and I’m glad it exists!


College crush?

Haha…I never thought I would be asked this. I’ll answer this another time ????
