Where are you from originally?
I was born in Great Lakes, Illinois. My family originated in Alexandria, Louisiana. I spent half of my life in the south and in Michigan.
In your time at the Forum, what are you looking forward to?
I am excited to plan community collaborations that will bring postsecondary education knowledge to those who have the ability, but lack the knowledge of the process.
What do you enjoy doing outside of your work at the National Forum?
My favorite pastime is to write poetry and sing. And I really love African Dance.
