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

It was the most memorable experience of my life. Being at PVAMU taught me how to be a responsible and productive young adult. I learned valuable lessons, and met some of the most amazing people on earth. I was involved in many programs, events, and served as the Chaplain for the 2015-2016 school year over the Baptist Student Movement Ministry.

I have indeed left my mark on campus by reaching and impacting hundreds of students. I excelled in my studies, and was able to attend the National Broadcasters Association Convention in Las Vegas for an entire week my last semester at PV. I was able to record a short news clip that went viral all over social media. I've had the BEST experience at PVAMU. I would indeed go back and do it all over again!

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

My first Homecoming was absolutely amazing. Some of my favorite Gospel Artists Kierra Sheard and Leandria Johnson came and blessed us indeed. Also meeting lifetime friends and being a part of he oldest organization on campus. It was there where I took my faith to another level and tapped into my many gifts.

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

Dr Toniesha Taylor - Interim Dept Head

Pushed me to the point of success. She has always been encouraging and always willing to share her wisdom. I was able to learn many things about life from this lady as it pertained to life after college. She always ensured that we had everything we needed to be successful in the classroom. Her teachings will always be reenacted and upheld!
