What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
My most memorable contribution thus far as campus queen has been through a session where I authentically spoke with freshman and sophomore females on this campus about my story and who I am behind the sash, title, crown, and heels. I felt that it was important to reach them on a personal and transparent level to let them know that I too go through the same issues that they do. So being able to contribute myself, my story, and my testimony was nothing but a blessing for me because I know that I blessed one of them and inspired them to continue to push through whatever obstacles they may face.
