Leisure Activities: In my leisure time, I enjoy dancing, reading, and meditating. I also spend my leisure time enjoying time with my family and friends. I regularly go to church and enriching my relationship with God. I try to consistently work to hone my writing and oratory skills as I try to better prepare myself for my postgraduate life.

Career Goals: After I finish law school, I aspire to become a political commentator for a major news network. After creating a following, I will have my own segment catered toward bridging the gap between politics and black pop culture. Later, I will run for public office as a congresswoman with a goal of one day being a chair person for the Democratic National Convention.

What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?: My most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen was creating a letter writing campaign under my platform "Unarmed and Innocent" that impacted students in the Chicagoland area who attend schools that are in dangerous areas and considered failing. I hand delivered 350 letters that encouraged students in the Chicagoland area to come to college by Morehouse and Spelman students. Also, 200 note cards were collected and put into snack bags for students in the Atlanta area during their standardized state testing period as forms of encouragement. The school counselor that helped me with the program told me that she kept a few of the letters on her wall as daily inspiration for herself and students. That was the first action I did as Miss Maroon and White and it has stuck with me every since.
