My career goal is to practice Civil Rights law and family law as an attorney.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
My most memorable contribution as a campus queen has been my "I'm Every Woman" Women's Empowerment Workshop which greatly impacted the lives of the freshman ladies at Fayetteville State University. The purpose of the workshop was to prepare the freshmen females for the beginning of their journey as Lady Broncos. Our workshop focused on body positivity, upholding a positive image, maintaining academic excellence in a stressful environment, and the power of networking in college. As my Court and I interacted with the freshmen ladies, it opened a safe space for them to gain strength from one another as they prepared for their journey at Fayetteville State University. The Women's Empowerment Workshop was inspired by my desire to leave a lasting impact on the lives of young women by inspiring them to be their greatest selves.
