Unsure of the path I wanted to take after high school, I finally made the decision to make Northern Virginia Community College my new home. That was a good decision.. There I became interested in Communication and Media. I graduated NOVA in 2018 with an Associates in General Studies then transferred to Norfolk State University, a historically black university, where I currently study Mass Communications. Although college has been a challenge for me academically and socially, I continue to thrive and conquer any obstacles put in my way.
Prior to the initial break out of COVID-19, I interned at Norfolk State’s radio station and studied the functions of different job roles within the station. I also got that chance to write entertainment news for the on-air morning show. I have a strong passion for creative writing such as poetry, journaling, and songwriting. I have performed in city venues in DC, which is my home.
I am grateful to Northern Virginia Community College for providing me with the opportunity to assist with One Day Immersion. I know that this conference provides knowledge and networking opportunities to students like myself, who are trying to get a sense of career opportunities and applications for my major. This kind of outreach is so important to young professionals. I am excited to meet Dolly Wolf and the Board of Directors and want to assist the success of this program any way that I can. One thing I have learned is that by helping and serving others, I help myself. I know this will help me on my journey. I am determined and appreciate ODI's mission to provide equity...a long time coming!
