Norfolk State University

Jadia Artis

Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA
Year in School: Senior
Major/Minor: Biology Pre-Professional ; Chemistry Minor
Expected Graduation: 2018

Extracurricular Activities:
Throughout my matriculation at Norfolk State University, I previously served as a scholar in the rigorous Dozoretz National Institute for Mathematics and Applied Sciences (DNIMAS) program, and the 2016 Miss Black and Gold for the Epsilon Pi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. I have served in several capacities in the Student Government Association, firstly as a member of the 2016-2017 Homecoming Commitee and now as a member of the Senior Class Cabinet and the 2017-2018 Miss Norfolk State University. I also am a member of the prestigious Beta Kappa Chi National Scientific Honor Society and currently serve as the President of the Darling and Elegant Delta Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Career Goals:
"Upon graduation in May of 2018, I hope to gain acceptance into a graduate certificate program to prepare me for the rigors of matriculation at an American Accredited Dental school with aspirations of one day impacting my public health community as a Pediatric Dentist.

What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
As the 2017-2018 Miss Norfolk State University, I always promote my platform ""Grow. Glow. Graduate."" With my second initiative, ""Glow"" I committed to spread my light and the will to help others on my campus and in the surrounding communities. As the campus queen, it is not only expected but it is her duty to invoke change in her school and local community. Being a dedicated academician with a 3.62 gpa, I heavily weigh the importance of scholastics and a cultivated mind. One of my most memorable moments as Miss NSU, has been impacting the lives of scholars at my school and at local high schools in my hometown of Virginia Beach, Va. I have made it my mission to improve the retention and graduation rates at my university through peer tutoring and mentoring services. In my community, I work with high school students in a college readiness and academic success program to not only promote all black institutions but especially the institution that has so graciously given to me, Norfolk State University.
