Why you chose Harris-Stowe State University: 
I have always been passionate about people obtaining higher education.  Harris-Stowe felt like a family environment and a place where students would never be in search of resources or people who genuinely cared about them succeeding inside and outside of the classroom.  I just really wanted to let students know that there was a place where a second chance was valued just as much as the first.

Fun facts:  
I built an entire model city out of cardboard and plastic bottles as a recycling project.
