What is your favorite memory from JSU? :
I have so many memories from JSU that it is so hard to pick one. I will say one of my favorite times is hanging out on the yard on a sunny day after one o’clock. I remember the yard being so packed because everybody is out hanging out. I also remember seeing people pouting because they had to go to class and they could not hang out.

What do you enjoy most about being a member of Memphis Alumni Chapter?
What I enjoy most about being a member of the Memphis Alumni Chapter is the fellowship and taking care of business to ensure future students have a better chance of successful opportunity at JSU, than I had. Don’t get me wrong, I was very successful during my time, but when I was in school, I didn’t have the chances ( or didn’t know about the opportunities) that is now being offered to upcoming students.

Favorite rival game to attend: ? 
My FAVORITE rival game is the Southern Heritage Classic. There is NOTHING like talking CASH MONEY to people that I know that went to TSU that is from the city, and at the same time fellowship with them

Anything else you would like to add ?
Attending Jackson State University is the best decision that my mom allowed me to make. Jackson State made me become the confident woman that I am today and I am so happy to have the experience. It prepared me for the real world by teaching me to handle the world that isn’t always nice. Every time I meet a high school student, I always ask them about college. I ask them about their choices and tell them that a HBCU should be one because I am a proud product of one.
