How did A Better Chance prepare you for your Member School experience?
A Better Chance equipped me to advocate for myself. A Better Chance taught me how to identify and respond to microaggressions. A Better Chance reminded me of the importance of building and sustaining affirming communities.
What is the most important lesson you learned in high school?
The most important lessons I learned in high school are to stay grounded in my faith, play hard, and work even harder.
Why did you decide to attend your specific college/university?
I decided to attend TSU because it's relatively close to home, has my desired major, and I was offered a full-ride scholarship. I'm excited about attending an HBCU. This will be my VERY FIRST experience as an ethnic majority in a school setting.
How does it align with your future goals and passions?
Attending TSU and majoring in Food and Animal Sciences/ Pre- Veterinary Medicine will prepare me to pursue my goal of becoming a large animal veterinarian.
