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.
