1

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

Actually I never knew what a HBCU was until I went on a College Tour my junior year of high school with a local YMCA in my area. Since then My love for HBCU’s especially LUPA has grown.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I wanted to attend a school with people who were similar to me. I thought that attending an HBCU would allow me to be around people who understood me.

3

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

It was a struggle. Literally! I’ve had so many financial, personal, and emotional experiences during my time there. However, I told myself nothing nor anyone will stop me from getting my degree. The Chaplain, Rev F. Faison, has been the pillar of strength helping me throughout my four fun, yet stressful years of college.

How did your HBCU prepare you for a diverse workplace?

Initially I didn’t understand why I had to reach all of these deadlines, writing paper after paper, analyzing data, processing case studies, etc. Now five months later I’m grateful. My HBCU professors were strict, but helpful. They pushed me to milestones that I didn’t think that I could reach. Although I am currently a Dance Movement Therapy major at Drexel University and Not in my career yet, LUPA has helped me get one step closer by helping me make it into Grad School.

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

Will be answered soon...

5

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

Honestly, it is very difficult for me to choose just one, but since I have to I would be Professor D. Gaither. She was just very honest and blunt. I could come to her for absolutely anything whether it was to get help with an assignment or a shoulder to cry on. The family oriented campus of LUPA is one that I can never imagine elsewhere.
