What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
Since being crowned Miss Lincoln University of Missouri, I have had ample opportunities to serve and to be served. While being in the limelight it fun and has its perks, my most memorable moment as Miss LU has been working with the youth. During homecoming I had the opportunity to work with young ladies who have special needs. Being able to do arts and crafts and read with these young women was a truly humbling experience. When the young ladies admired my regalia it reminded me of myself, growing up with low self esteem and admiring all of the beautiful HBCU Queens let me know that I too was a queen, even before the crown.
