What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
Thus far my most memorable moment as Miss West Virginia State University was when I was elected to serve as my campus HBCU Queen. I knew that I would use my platform to help unite the gap between the alumni and current students. I am encouraging student involvement to uplift the student body in hopes of bringing a new level of P.R.I.D.E. to the institution. Participation, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, and Excellence. I believe together we can create an atmosphere that is beneficial to all. I have planned to make a change at State, and thus far, I have already seen growth. I intent on bringing a new excitement of P.R.I.D.E. to West Virginia State University.
