Why did you choose to attend GSW?
I decided to attend GSW because of the business program and because the campus felt like home. 

Please list your University highlights, achievements, leadership and awards.

What would people be surprised to know about you?
I think people would be surprised to know that I have received an Associate’s degree from Albany State University at the age of 18. I also received my first degree from GSW at the age of 20.

What is a cause you’re passionate about?
A cause that I am passionate about is The Brotherhood at GSW. I am passionate about The Brotherhood because I recognize the importance of having representation on college campuses. I also like being part of an initiative that promotes self-discovery and helps create a sense of belonging in a community I belong to.

If you had to choose a discipline to study other than your major, what would it be? Why?
If I had to choose another discipline of study, I would choose Psychology. I would like to learn more about people and what makes them do what they do.

What makes GSW special?
What makes GSW special to me is all of the opportunities I have been provided. I have been able to grow and develop my leadership and career since I have been here.

What advice do you have for incoming students?
I would tell incoming students to get out of your comfort zone. Experiencing new things helped me to learn more about myself and develop new interests.

What is your favorite series to binge watch? Why?
My favorite series to binge is anything anime. Anime always catches my attention, so I’m always drawn in to an unintentional binge.
