What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?: My platform is to “Promote Positivity, Acknowledge our Principles, and Sharpen our Perspectives"". Since being crowned as Miss Morris College, I have been able to revive the school spirit of my HBCU by creating a positive atmosphere, hosting lively events and also being the last Miss Morris College under the longest serving president in the state of South Carolina, Dr. Luns C. Richardson. It is a good feeling to be admired by your peers and be able to influence others to do their very best. I take pride in my HBCU and encourage others to do the same. I feel like I am contributing to the longevity of my school by creating students who are invested in the institution and will eventually become active alumni. Going forward in my reign as Miss Morris College, I plan to emphasize on women empowerment. As women, not only should we recognize our worth but we should understand the power that we have as women. Furthermore, we need to learn how to build our confidence and sustain our self- esteem.
