I am an active member of the Howard University Campus Pals, Jewels, Incorporated mentorship program; the Howard Players; the College of Arts and Sciences Honors Association; the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and the Howard University New York State Club. I also participate in various arts education community service projects in the Washington DC area.Leisure Activities
My hobbies/passions include dancing [ballet, modern, hip-hop, jazz, tap], singing, acting, drawing, painting, swimming, scrapbooking, browsing fashion photography blogs, reading, writing music, and writing poetry.Career Goals
As a rising senior Musical Theatre Major at Howard University, I plan to obtain a fulfilling career in the performing arts sector that combines my professional interest in entertainment law, education, and the theatre. As an artist, I largely consider myself a humanitarian--such that my chief desire is to serve those who are underprivileged, specifically those in countries like Haiti that are underdeveloped or have suffered from recent disasters. My desire to practice maximum use of my abilities is eloquently manifested in the words of Erma Bombeck: "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me".Most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen
My most memorable contribution as a queen thus far would have to be the work I’ve done with Jewels Incorporated. A non-profit mentoring organization in the DC community, the Jewels Enrichment program serves to nurture and motivate young girls to be leaders in their local, national, and global communities. The duty of constantly reminding these ladies that they are precious gems and queens in their own right is truly inspirational and I am beyond grateful to be a part of such a valuable, giving experience. When delivering the keynote speech at their annual end of the year gala, I looked into the audience of girls and saw the future—our future—and was reminded of the great impact that we as African American women can have on one another.
