Tell me something interesting that everyone should know about you?
"How about, who is more interesting than the One who made you and knows every strand of hair on your head? I would say because of the God/Jesus/Holy Spirit in you and you don't have to be perfect, you are made interesting for people to know about. Never forget, your value as a woman of God, is priceless. Take care."

"HBCU has been a major Blessing for me, it has been a thrill and a joy to meet soo many good bright people here. I think as much as I have commented at this site and for this site, I can not compare in words the value of this site for people. I wish the best for all and exponential continued growth. My sincerest appreciations... Peace. Sincerest W.W.H.III"

Interviewed by Daniel Moss 07/20/08

"I just answered a interview question for someone, maybe you would like to read it, it is in reference to Faith... My Faith & Strength? I never quit and My name means Determination and Great Protector... Do you or have you looked up your name meaning? For those by chance that may not have a name meaning or were given a bad charge in life by people, ask Jabez. 1Chronicles 4:9-10. Jabez asked God for a name change/new name meaning/new charge in Life... It's amazing that most whose names have a meaning have been living that name meaning and did not know why... They just did what they had to do. Destiny/Greatness."

Interviewed by crystal williams 07/09/08

In one word, what makes you happy?
""Hope"... I know you requested an answer with one word Sis, but thats hard for me to do in short. I want to make clear what I mean by "Hope" in short. I believe before one can have faith, before you can believe in GOD/JESUS, you have to have something to receive (i.e Choice). Before Faith which is the connector to God/Jesus, there has to be hope in the choice to have Faith which is Believing. When people falter what happens to get back up and moving again? Ask Peter in the New Testament one of the Apostles/Disciples of JESUS for Adults. For all youth ask Isaiah 40:28-31... Lastly, for Everyone that can relate, when You had nothing or nobody, what else did You have? "Hope"... Kids are great/ the best at that right? "Hope"... "

Interviewed by Yvonne C. Hunnicutt 07/08/08

what motivates you?
"God, the Bible, cloudy rainy weather, youth, those who are less fortunate, sports, good books, Miami Dolphins, issues out there in the world, beaches, action movies, WWE wrestling, grilling, great music, good preaching, watching Michael Jordan play basketball, dancing, health and fitness, going to the barbershop, etc., I can't get too much more personal than this sis w/o being told TMI! Lol!"

Interviewed by Nicole Brown 07/05/08

If you got it on your mind then get it off your chest
"Why does Barak Osama get grilled about his faith and not all the other Presidential hopefuls who had Pastors make controversial comments in past??? I said this to a few folk who were talking about Barak, you may guess their cultural affiliation... I asked them, "Mitt Romney is a Mormon... The Mormons historically did not allow blacks and when they did, they were not allowed to hold any positions in that religion (They just voted recently to allow blacks to hold positions)... Mitt Romney is a devout Mormon..." Hope this is interesting enough for one of my 2cents worth, Lol! No one questioned Mitt Romney on that, who came close to winning the Republican Presidential nomination and is prsently being considered a Vice Presidential candidate by John McCain and is being suggested by some Republicans. Enough said."

Interviewed by James Hathorn 07/04/08

Are you in a Fraterrnity or Sorrority?
"Hi Sis, I did not join a Fraternity while in college. I was older, 26 when I came to FAMU out of the Army. When I saw what those teens respectfully were doing to people I knew and roommates, I said I'll wait till I graduate and go Grandchapter respectfully. I did visit with various Fraternities having friends and family a part of them. I do have plans to join the Kappa's. I joined the Masons while in the Army years ago. That was another deciding factor in not joining a Fraternity. I knew guys that were Masons that were in Fraternities and they knew what I went to in order to be a part of the Masonic Order, I was not willing to do by guys younger than my baby brother. No dis meant to anyone. Hope I answer You good enough here."

What is the #1 thing you like about
"This site has been a major blessing to me because of the staff and all the friends, associates and networks I have made here. Also this site has enhanced my writing and although I was here to meet people this site far and beyond has been a major unexpected boost in promoting and advertising what I do. I have been invited to other websites, I have participated at other previous websites and I brag about HBCU all the time. It came to me again the other night and a point I make in my book that the young folk here are soo positive, ambitious, they dream verses other sites where the older generation try to tear you down because of what they have not done for themselves. I thought of the woman caught in the act of adultery and Jesus saved her. There were no young folk there... Just look at the world, i.e. media, community, Church etc. Mostly middle age to seniors. Not all, just some, but enough of them. When young folk try to make a move in this world, who are the first in general to thwart dreams? This site is a major conduit to promote the younger generation with a mix of alumnus and older adults who benefit by giving and receiving. A perfect mix. I draw strength and rejuventation from here. This is why I state this site blesses me far more. In general young folk say dream big, limitless, older say whoa thats too much. But God says (Scriptures are loaded about the impossible)? I am not talking about the wisdom and knowledge, I'm talking about those who are negative. I know you have your stories to share as well. That would make a great blog, Bro! I can write a chapter for my 2cents worth on what this site has meant to me. I still sport the HBCU.Com t-shirt I received from here and I can see myself on the public stage sporting FAMU Rattla (of course!) paraphrenalia as well as Like Bill Cosby does... I hope I did not write too much here Lol! Peace. "
