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

I’m from Detroit MI originally, I moved to SC around 2006, started playing AAU basketball. My coaches were all graduates from Allen and the rest is history.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I applied to a few school beforehand, Newberry College, Winthrop University, USC, and a few more but I got an acceptance from Allen first and ran with it.

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

Allen University is a “you make your own experience” type institute. Even though I was an English major, I’m now in radio.

My experience came in the form of learning different skills I never knew I would be good at. In my case it was in the entertainment area. Unfortunately it was my junior year before I figured it out lol.

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

I would say seeing Greek Life was a first time for me. I had no idea who they were or why they would group together at parties. Funny enough my AAU coaches were in Greek orgs.

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

By the time I got to college, my mindset was already kind of on that focus level. But I would have to say Professor English, he taught us how to write papers, which I was horrible at initially, he helped push me to look past the mediocre and do things on my own level instead of riding a wave.
