What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
As the 88th Miss Kentucky State University, I have had the privilege to effectively execute my platform. Campus Queens have the ability to touch others through their personal testimonies and creativity. Together my life experiences and creativity gave root to my platform, "Under Pressure, We Create Black Diamonds". I believe this is our life's creed as Campus Queens. It constantly reminds us of our true strength despite adversities. At Kentucky State University, we have been able to create resources and develop solutions, which in turn birthed precious gems.... Diamonds! As a campus queen I have applied pressure to life challenges through my "Secure The Bag" initiative. This is a series of events that allows everyone security. Security of one's social/emotional needs, academic needs, and access to opportunities.
