What is your dream job and why?
My dream job would have to be a pre-teens counselor. I love working with kids and acting as a support system for them. I know what it’s like to form a great bond with a counselor/mentor and I want other kids to have that experience.

Which hobbies do you enjoy?
Some of my favorite things to do would have to be binge watching old t.v series on netflix, listening to music (R&B and hip-hop), and shopping.

Who is your biggest crush?
My biggest crush would have to be Jesse Williams, A.K.A Dr. Jackson Avery from Grey’s Anatomy!

What’s your fave song to jam out to right now?
Right now my favorite song would have to be Caroline by Aminé.

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

If I could change one thing about the world it would have to be the new president of the United States. I wish Obama could have stayed in office forever.

What does Empowerment mean to you?
To me Empowerment means realizing one’s strength and confidence. Using that power to positively voice any issues or concerns.

What are your plans after high school?
After High School I plan on going to away for college, preferably to an HBCU but I’ll be keeping an open mind about that.

Who is your role model and why?
My role model would have to be Madam C. J. Walker. This woman was an African American entrepreneur and was the first self-made millionaire. Walker started off with nothing and built an empire selling hair products. Being both black and a woman definitely made it harder but she didn’t let that stop her future success. If she can do all of that in the early 1900s I feel I can do anything I set my mind to.

How have you helped someone in your life lately?
I’ve recently been busy helping a close friend plan her 18th birthday party, which I believe should turn out to be a huge success!
