Why Kentucky State?

It’s funny how the universe works; I initially thought that I would graduate from the institution that I started at - Michigan State University. When I made the decision to transfer to Kentucky State University my junior year, it just felt right. I could have gone anywhere I wanted, but I chose Kentucky State because God led me here.

What is your major and why did you choose this area of study?

My major is pre-medicine. I chose this area of study because I knew that I wanted to help people on a larger scale, a decision I made when I was 11 years old.

Who inspires you and why?

My mother is a major inspiration in my life. But, I honestly inspire myself because I can’t expect anyone else to believe in me if I can’t see it for myself.

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

After I graduate, I plan to enroll in medical school to pursue a degree in psychiatry.
