One word that describes me: Curious. I love to learn, and I know many, many useless fun facts because I research things I get curious about.
Most memorable experiences at WSU: Probably being a co-chair for the V.I.B.E.S. conference, one of the largest student-run conferences that takes months and months of preparation to bring over 100 underrepresented students to WSU to experience higher education. Through this experience, I not only developed my skills in a professional sense but was able to make connections with students, student-leaders, faculty/staff, and administration. These memories will go with me wherever I go, and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to plan and execute this conference.
Clubs or Extracurricular Activities: Black Men Making a Difference; Black Student Union
SpongeBob character I most Identify with: Probably David Hasselhoff in the SpongeBob movie. Why would I want to be a sea creature when I could be David Hasselhoff?
Advice I would give to a prospective student: Get out of your comfort zone and get involved with something you are passionate about. There is always room for growth and opportunity, but most people are too scared to grab onto those opportunities. Getting out of my comfort zone has helped me in so many ways in school and beyond, and the connections I have made from getting involved will follow me forever.
My plans after graduation: I hope to go to graduate school to pursue a career in student affairs and hopefully one day get a job as a retention counselor for underrepresented students.
