1

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

I’m from the west side of Chicago, Illinois. My grandmother introduced me to Tuskegee University being that my deceased great grandfather attended the university. After when I had to transfer because of financial problems, Tuskegee helped me realize that as I continued my education it wouldn’t be a great experience unless I attended another HBCU.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I chose a HBCU because of the experience I believed I would get. When you’re at an HBCU it’s the only time being African American dosen’t matter because everyone around you is African American and most of your teachers are also.

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

The Tuskegee Experience is unlike any other. It is truly a family. Tuskegee parties hard but works even harder it’s something I will never forget. And friends I’ll never part from.

Prairie View in comparison is not as great but the campus is wonderful. Continuing my education here will definitely give me a leg up in my profession.

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

My first experience when I moved in with all the freshman at Tuskegee University. Adams Hall was filled with parents and girls getting ready for college.

We all had our doors open cause it was really hot in the Alabama heat. That’s when I met one of my good friends Kia she came and said how much she liked my room decorations and that started one of my many friendships at Tuskegee.

5

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

A professor that really inspired me would be Dr.Muhammad. He is one of the Nursing Chemistry teachers. He believed I could do better than the work I was putting out and pushed me to get the “A” I received in his class. He was very encouraging but he didn’t take no BS.
