As an African American woman in society today, I have made it my personal mission to succeed against the odds that have not been in the favor of others who look like me. I joined NSBE because I longed for a community of other minority men and women who relatively desire to uplift and encourage one another in a positive environment. I am currently studying to obtain my degree in Bioengineering, with plans to pursue a career in the biomedical field. I aim to make a positive influence in my community by mentoring and tutoring the youth in my area and inspiring them to strive for academic success. As a natural-born leader, I believe my passion, enthusiasm, dedication, and optimism will allow me to conquer the world one day.
