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

I am from Pompano Beach, Florida and HBCUs are just a way of life in my family. My daddy went to Talladega, Prairie View and Howard. My sister went to UDC and Howard and I go to FAMU.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

It’s what was expected of me and it’s a tradition in my family. PWIs don’t do a well enough job of preparing blacks for today’s world. I <3 My HBCU.
