Personal Values and Academic Achievements
I would describe myself as a driven and motivated individual. Once I decided to go back to school to obtain my master's degree, I remained committed to that goal and worked hard to maintain good grades while working a full-time job. As proof of this motivation, on May 1, 2010 - I was inducted into the Pi Alpha Alpha.
Why did you choose to attend Bowie State University?
I chose Bowie State because I wanted to experience what it feels like to attend a Historically Black College and University (HBCU). My undergraduate experience comes from the University of Maryland University College (UMUC). Also, I chose BSU because it is my father's alma mater and my sister, Tiara Tart, is currently attending BSU. Lastly, the school was offering the exact educational program I was searching for - Public Administration. And I can honestly say that the Public Administration program is a great program. I have learned such much in the program, and the experience has been rewarding.
What professor/s has had the most impact on you and why?
It is hard to say which professor had the most impact on me, but to name a few: Dr. Kevin Glasper, Dr. Callier, Dr. Marion Harris, Dr. Loreno Hesster, Prof. Linda Cureton and Prof. White. Each of them have a wealth of experience and knowledge to give to their students, and the more you seek from them, the more you get. They have each made my experience at BSU a memorable one.
