Claflin University

Faith McKie

Year in School: Senior
Major/Minor: Sport Management
Expected Graduation: 2020

Extracurricular Activities:
I, Faith Dominique McKie, am a senior in the Alice Carson Tisdale Honors College at Claflin University. There, I study Sport Management with a minor in Spanish. Along with being named Miss Claflin University 2019-2020, I am a member of various organizations such as the Track and Field Program, Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, A.Bevy Collegiate Group, Alpha Kappa Mu National Honor Society, Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Gamma Nu Chapter (Spring 2019 Initiate). When Miss CU is not "hitting the books" or "hitting the track", I am fulfilled by volunteering as a tutor to student-athletes on campus, supporting voter education, spending time at the local SPCA, traveling, or relaxing with family and friends.

Career Goals:
My ultimate career goal is to use my skill sets in order to make a lasting impact in the business side of professional sports, while also incorporating international travel. By being proficient in Spanish, I wish to expand the clientele that I am able to impact. For nine years now, I have been a track and field athlete, which has fueled my passion for not only athletics, but advocacy regarding the importance of health and wellness. As a part of my Miss Claflin platform, I am using my own passions to encourage students to strive for excellence as they walk in their purpose - particularly emphasizing the importance of physical and mental health.

What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
I believe that "hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." As such, I have worked hard to achieve every goal that I have set for myself, including not giving up when I didn't succeed the first time. Though every accomplishment is fulfilling and being a campus queen provides a plethora of great memories, my most memorable contribution as a campus queen is being told that I am making a difference in the lives of individuals around me. My mission to inspire is rewarding when I receive messages such as, "You're my role model here at Claflin, and I aspire to be like you." Making those memories are the most humbling and rewarding of them all. I truly believe that attending an HBCU is the best decision that I have ever made and has transformed me into the woman that I am today.
