Things I am Involved in:

Black Women of Today, Black Student Union, Single Mothers of Color and Order of the Eastern Stars

My Plan After College:

I plan to become a mid-wife nurse and work either at Children’s Hospital in Denver or I am going to move down South and work at one of their hospitals

Why I Chose UNC:

I chose UNC because it has a beautiful campus and a lot of great organizations to join. I also came to UNC because it wasn’t too far away from home and I have people that I know who go here. Having people that I know makes it feel comfortable and more like home.

Advice To My Freshman Self:

School work comes first, then the fun. Be active around campus because it will make your college experience better.

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?

“The choices that you make, make the person that you become”

Favorite Movie:

All of the Transformers, Fantastic 4, The Harry Potters, and more!
