I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I served as the Chaplain for the 2017-2018 school year. I am apart of the Greer Dawson Wilson Student Leadership Training Program. Through this program, I am very active on our campus. I have been a part of various committees that plan for Spring Fest, Black History Month and Hallow Harvest Fest.I am a main anchor on Hampton University's WHOV Newscast.
I aspire to work in the entertainment or theater industry where I will combine my passion for Public Relations and music. I had the opportunity to work for the Mayor of Compton, Aja Brown, as a social media intern. I utilized social media to engage millennials with the goal of increasing millennial turn out for her re-election campaign. I spearheaded a Media event through my major. This event included the CEO and Founder of Mielle Organics,Monique Rodriguez. I collaborated with a team to organize the event from conception to completion and I served as the official escort for Mrs.Rodriguez.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
I organized an event called ""The Pinky Klub presents: Poetry Night"". This event was meant to spread awareness about the arts. Attendees read poetry, painted on canvases, performed original vocal and instrument pieces. The event was recently featured in the official magazine for my sorority, ""The Ivy Leaf"".
