Major/Minor: Master of Business Administration Candidate
Expected Graduation: 2020
Since my time here in Tallahassee, I have been involved in a number of organizations both on and off campus. I am a member of Big Brother Little Brother mentoring program and served as Mr.BBLB, a first year experience peer mentor for the incoming freshman, and a marketing intern for FAMU Athletics. My professional and civic organizations include Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity, Inc., and the Beta Nu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. where I have served as President for the last 2 years. I have been able to also serve as the president of (Close- Up) a company within the School of Business and Industry, a National Sales Network Student Ambassador, Leadership Florida Marketing intern and staff assistant, and a Global Marketing Intern for Eli Lilly and Company.
Upon graduation, I plan on working for a fortune 500 company within a sales or marketing director role. I expect to receive my first promotion within 2-3 years while creating an avenue for other HBCU students to get offers at my company. In my outside endeavors, I aim to work with a non-profit to teach young minority students about the importance of college but specifically the importance and history of HBCU's. Following in my parent's footsteps I will also invest in real estate and my own entrepreneurial endeavors to create generational wealth for my family to come.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus King?:
Although my reign has just begun, I have been honored to represent my university in a number of ways. My most memorable contribution thus far however has been a voters march to the polls with Angela Rye and Andrew Gillum in support of Mr. Gillum's campaign for Governor of Florida. On the same day I was able to sit down with the university leadership team and advocate for our student body to the board of governors representatives who were visiting our campus and wanted to hear from student leaders what we need on campus. These moments have made the reality of my reign sink in and have allowed me to see the true power I have to help mold my university for generations of Rattlers to come.
