What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
In September 2017, I became the first queen from Virginia State University to participate in the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Pageant. I am honored to have been able to represent my illustrious HBCU and claim the title of 1st Runner Up. This is a great accomplishment for me, as I love advocating on behalf of my University. VSU breeds well-rounded students, and I love using my platform to showcase all the my institution has to offer. Participating in the competition of Black campus queens gives me another platform to promote positive mentorship and women empowerment. I am forever grateful for the opportunity.
