Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

The idea that I could receive a comparable education and a cultural immersion experience that would show and expose me to a side of my people that I had not fully experienced or understood while growing up.

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

The best way to put it is to say in climbing this hill, there are things that you will need and things you will need to leave as you go along the path if you are to reach the zenith.

That simply means FAMU changed me from a boy with hopes and dreams into a man with plans and goals. I am now ready to make my mark on this great world.

4

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

N/A

5

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

Are you trying to get me caught up in a case of bias? There are so many. Dr. Dana Dennard (article feat. Dr. Dennard / video below), Dr. Kinchlow, Dr. Carolyn Council,and the entire Psychology Department.

6

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

Olean’s! They have some pretty good soul food and Ms. Olean believes in piling your plate without emptying your pocket. Lindy’s is pretty good too.

7

College crush?

Is this being recorded? I plead the fifth!

No, seriously… I was infatuated with my high school star for a long time. Beyond that, I wouldn’t call them crushes.
