B.S. in University Studies with a Medical Humanities certification, University of Texas at Arlington

Appointed 2021

I am a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington where I obtained a B.S in University studies and a Medical HUmanities certification. I have spent the last 4 years traveling around the U.S and out of the country to experience and learn from other cultures. My plans now involve using my experiences to expand on my current business, a hair salon in South Arlington. I want to use my business as a vessel to educate and connect the black community. It is known that “knowledge is power”, and “It’s about who you know, not what you know.” Through lively discussions and¬†actively connecting my clients and peers to each other, I have been able to see growth in my community already! Although the growth of this salon is my passion, I do plan on attending medical school and seeing as much of the world¬†as I can.

My graduation from [HS]2 in 2016 was the best experience I could have asked for, and I gained so many memories. This upcoming program has me excited to be a part of the team creating the learning foundation for the program scholars. I didn’t realize but HS^2 left me craving hiking and experiencing the outdoors as much as possible. My hobbies also include reading medical magazines, playing fetch with my pup, driving 6+ hours for the sights, and telling everyone I know the things I did, learned, and who I met during my time at the program.
