Favorite quote: “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” Maya Angelou 

What would people be surprised to know about you? I think people would be surprised to know that I love makeup and skin care and that I also hope to get an esthetician license.
What is a cause you’re passionate about? I am passionate about raising awareness on mental health in black communities.
Why did you choose to attend MSP? The size of MSP made me want to attend because I feel as though I would bond with my professors and receive an interpersonal learning experience. I also applied because of the humanistic foundation, I believe that I will be treated with respect and that my opinions will be valued.             
What do you want to do with your degree/certificate? After graduation I plan to counsel African American women and hopefully open a wellness center that combines therapy with beauty workshops. I hope to promote self-confidence by teaching women about ways to take care of their skin, makeup etc.
