Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I didn’t know much about HBCUs to have a preference except that my dad graduated from Bethune and said “It’s something about HBCUs”

What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
Rich training, rich history and unforgettable friends/professors. The BFA Dance program I was a part of actually began the year my class (2013) entered college.
"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*
Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*
Calvin Gadson was my freshman year math professor who literally pulled math intelligence out of me.
That had always been my weakest subject but he poured so much into me and believed in me. Mr. Atkinson, Grant and Medcalf. These are my dance professors.
These men gave me my artistic foundation and never let up. They saw something in me that I never knew existed. Because of them, I know me.
