Like so many others who have come before me, attending Howard University has opened numerous doors in my life. Receiving the recognition of becoming a competitive scholar is significant because it grants me the opportunity to advocate for the important role HBCUs play at this critical moment in our nation. HBCU students are history in the making and we must do all that we can to ensure their stories are told.”
