Name: Jeleigha Marie Winters

Hometown: Lexington, Kentucky

Classification: Junior

Major: Pre-nursing

Why did you choose Kentucky State? Why not Kentucky State? I love the feeling of family that you get when you step onto campus. Kentucky State is like a second home.

What is you major and why did you choose this area of study? My major is pre-nursing. I chose this area of study based upon my need to help others and the love that I have for learning new things that our bodies can do.

What do you plan to do when you graduate? I plan to get my master’s and, shortly after, start a non-profit for teenage girls that have been abused.

Who inspires you and why? My parents inspire me because I watch them work together so well as husband and wife every day to support their family. I hope to be able to do the same with my husband for our son.

Words to live by: “I hope that my future is as bright as my highlight.”
