Here at "our dear old college home," I have actively served as a member of Essence of a Lady Tiger, Student Government Association, Pre-Alumni Council, W.E.B. Du Bois-Harvey Honors College, The JSU Chorale, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and numerous honor societies. Academically, I excel in the College of Business under the Department of Marketing and Management, maintaining a 3.6 GPA. Throughout my collegiate matriculation, I have interned on the U.S. Capitol Hill, the JSU Department of Marketing, and the Division of Research. I am a spring 2018 initiate of the Delta Pi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, standing on the values of scholarship, service and sisterhood.
My aspiration is to become a director of marketing at a Fortune 500 company. Additionally, I aspire to return to my home, the U.S. Virgin Islands, with all of the skills and knowledge that I acquired while away, to bring new opportunities to the people of my community.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
The most memorable contribution I've made thus far as a Campus Queen is hosting a Welcome Week Giveaway contest where everyone that entered was able to receive a Miss JSU College Starter Kit. Having this give away was so important to me because as a freshman, I received a similar package on Move-in Day. Items from that package lasted me almost half of the first semester. My goal was to target those that were really in need of necessities and possibly could not afford them. I hosted a donation drive to solicit items that would be included in the kit. Members of the community, students, faculty, staff, and even alumni eagerly donated to help this cause. Seeing the look appreciation on the faces of those who received a Miss JSU College Starter Kit was extremely priceless and heart-warming, which is why this experience has been my most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen.
