Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

Being from Chicago and going to an all black high school I knew I wanted to do something different.

3

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

Florida Memorial University is the only HBCU in South Florida however it is still not as well known as the other 3 Florida HBCUs.

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?*

I had so many professors that left lasting impressions on me, many of whom I still speak with today. It’s so funny, I graduated 11 years ago but when I step foot in a classroom of my former Professor, it’s like I’m still a student.

6

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

I was a straight nerd in high school. I was a member of SGA, Jr. Engineering Technical Society, Peer Intervention Program and Top Teens of America.

7

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

Well, there were plenty of good restaurants in the area but there was nothing and I mean NOTHING compared to a home-cooked meal!!!!

8

College crush?

I will not divulge that information. Needless to say, we are still friends to this day.
