Why Kentucky State? I chose Kentucky State because I wanted to further my education and connect with my culture. I was always interested in attending an HBCU far away from home and it seemed like a good fit.

What is your major and why did you choose this area of study? My major is mass communication. I chose this field of study because I was always interested in PR and wanted to help people get their dreams off the ground.

Words to live by: Perseverance, faith, content and always be a little uncomfortable to grow.
