Nyia Fairley, Miss Hampton University (1365 hits)

Hometown: Chicago, Illinois

Year in School: Senior

Major/Minor: Pharmacy

Expected Graduation: 2020

Extracurricular Activities: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Golden Key International Honors Society, American Pharmacists Association, National Black Pharmacist Association, Freddye T. Davy Honors College,

Leisure Activities: Organizing and planning community service projects and fundraising, shopping, spending time with friends and family, zumba and traveling

Career Goals: My career goals are to become a pharmacist focusing on research emphasizing the use of drugs to combat infectious disease and cancer; in addition to being a clinical pharmacist working with healthcare teams for the advancement of patient care. My biggest aspiration is to one day own a pharmaceutical company in efforts of dispensing drugs at affordable rates for those who lack healthcare benefits.

What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?: My most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen thus far has been the launching of my platform, The Love Your Mirror Project: Embracing Body Diversity and Building the Self-Esteem Among Young Girls Everywhere. This project is most memorable because, it turned out greater than I expected; and I was able to reach so many young women on campus and within the Hampton Roads community who deal with depression, insecurity and low self-esteem. It was amazing to see how we all were able to come together as women and express ourselves about the different fears and stigmas we have encountered pertaining to self-image. By being vulnerable and sharing my story of overcoming insecurity and lack of self-acceptance with these ladies a sense of empowerment was built for them to accept who they are and to embrace their own kind of beautiful.
