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

I was born in Brooklyn NY. In my senior year of high school, I moved to Pennsylvania. I debated whether I wanted to go to college or not. When it came time for me to apply to colleges a few friends were telling me about Lincoln University and Cheyney University.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

All of the tours I took of HBCUs, I was amazed by the hospitality. I felt like I was family at the schools even before I applied. On the contrary, when I went to PWIs, it seemed like I was just another number. I am an advocate for community and I observed a sense of community touring HBCUs. Everyone on the HBCU campuses stopped to introduce themselves and share some insight with us. On the PWI campuses I didn’t get that same feeling.
