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

I am from Maringouin, LA, a small rural area about 45 minutes West of Baton Rouge. My mother and high school teachers introduced me to HBCUs back in the day.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I choose an HBCU over a pwi because of their commitment to ensuring African Americans excel in every aspect of their life despite their circumstances. They reminded me that we could become doctors and lawyers, and greatness was expected from us.
