What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
My most memorable contribution as Miss Dillard thus far is my bi-weekly ""Bossed Tuesday"" workshops. This workshop is designed to professionalize and prepare students for life after Dillard. During these professional development workshops I help strengthen student's resumes, assist in developing personal statements , research job opportunities, apply for internships, and coordinate a personalize career plan. As a HBCU student and African American woman I understand the importance of not only securing a college education but obtaining a career. My goal is to help seniors attend graduate school or job employment, Juniors and Sophomores obtain internships, and Freshmen strengthen their involvement for professional resumes. In addition, I assist in planning numerous on campus graduate and professional school fair available to all students and the community.
