Year in School: Senior
Major/Minor: Biological Systems Engineering
Expected Graduation: 2019
I have been involved with several activities during my undergraduate career, these include: Founder and Student Advisor for the FAMU Women Student Union, a member of the Beta Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, a YMCA Reads Mentor, a member of Alpha Epsilon Honor Society, Peer Mentor for the Student Life Skills courses, FAMU Volunteer Services Program Volunteer, 2017-2018 White House HBCU All-Star Ambassador, RAA Middle School Study Buddies Mentor, 2017 Orientation Leader, Regional Technical Outreach and Community Help (T.O.R.C.H.) Chair for the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, FAMU Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) and Big Sister Little Sister Mentoring Program (BSLS)."
After working within the field of biological sciences and agriculture, I want to create a non-profit organization for young girls wishing to pursue careers in the STEM field (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), while also providing them with the mentorship and resources to attend the institution of their choosing. These plans are all tentative, however, based on the path that God is guiding me on.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
Although my reign as the 112th Miss Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University has just begun, I have had the opportunity to advocate tremendously for my institution on several platforms. This past summer, I had the chance to represent FAMU in our nation's capital (Washington, D.C.) and voice the importance of my illustrious institution and all Historically Black Colleges and Universities nation-wide to some of our nation's top leaders, including: Senator Cory Booker, Congresswoman Alma Adams, Senator Bernie Sanders and several advocates for civil rights. This not only assisted my university in gaining exposure across the country, but motivated students in my community and communities across America to support and attend HBCU's!
