1

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

I am originally from Memphis,Tn, but I moved to Atlanta,Ga my second semester of my senior year of high school. I am the first to go to college in my family. No one really introduced me to HBCU’s. I found out about them when I started doing college tours.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

My dream was always to attend college in New York, but that changed when I moved to Georgia. I visited some HBCU’s and it showed me that so many amazing African American have left their mark in some way or some form. I realized that I wanted to leave my mark as well.

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

Clark Atlanta University is known for having over-achieving students. Just to be a part of that group makes me feel like I have accomplished something that is bigger than me. I am so happy to be a part of the AUC. I honestly can’t wait to make a difference in my community and at my new HBCU!

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

One of my first time experiences in college was learning how to network. I have been offered many great opportunities in Atlanta and I chose to take them. That is why I am transferring to the illustrious Clark Atlanta University as a sophomore. Even though I will miss my friends at my old HBCU people learn and grow.

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

My psychology teacher has been a big impact on my life in and out of the classroom. She has given me opportunities to work in the community and network with a lot of people. She has also stayed after school to help me prepare for a test or if I needed some help, to help me through a hard time.
