Q. How are your classes?
“Classes at Howard University are like no other. Learning perspectives at this institution are one-of-a-kind. I enjoy that all my classes come from a cultural perspective, even if it’s not in the course name or description. They become challenging at times, but learning from someone who looks like you, surrounded by people who look like you, and about people who relate to your culture makes the hard work worth fighting for.”
Q. What did you wish you knew before starting college that you have learned since arriving?
“Acknowledging that college is challenging is a universal thought, but accepting the lessons that come with it is an aspect I wish I were ready for before arriving at my university. Failure is part of the process of becoming your own person. However, your plan of overcoming these challenges helps you grow, and this is precisely what gets me through each day. As long as you are making any progress, you are growing from the difficulties that come your way.”
Q. Have you identified your strategies for success?
“Identifying my strategies for success has been humbling; however, ensuring I excel at the university level is necessary. I have laid out plans to balance my academic, professional, and social lifestyles with time management skills and respectful boundaries. Planning out time within your day for coursework/studying, clubs/organizations, and family/friends is the first step to ensuring all of these items become complete. From there, immersing yourself in your collegiate experience will follow suit.”
Q. How did you use your B.O.S.S. Scholarship?
“The BOSS Scholarship from The MGAM Scholarship Foundation was directly applied to my cost of attendance at Howard University. Specifically, my tuition as an Arts and Sciences student was deducted by the help of this foundation.”
