What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am most passionate about helping people who are sick or trying to recover from an illness. This past summer my mother was diagnosed with cancer and it was difficult watching her go through treatment and still try to play the role of a mom and attend college at the same time as me. This passion for people who are battling illness fuels me to pursue pharmacy because medicine plays a huge role in helping people with possibly fatal illnesses recover.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

Martin Luther King Jr., In fact, I hang a poster of him over my bed where I lay, in my dorm. MLK Jr led a nonviolent civil rights movement to free blacks from unrighteous laws and acts against colored men and women. But, what I love the most about him is that he embodied the civil rights movement, he lived it he breathed it he made himself the civil rights movement.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

I love hip-hop music, especially the old sounds like Talib kwali, Nas, Mos Def, and J Cole, who is a newer artist but still uses the idea of preaching peace, love, and restoration soul in his music. I enjoy old hip-hop music because before gangster rap hip hop music sole purpose was to inform and encourage movement, which also encourages its name hip-hop.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

My biggest project that I am working on as of now is school. I do my best to aid my community when called, but I know the best way for me as of now to help those in need is by educating myself. Everything I am doing now is necessary for my life project and that is to help bring medicine and relief to third world countries.

Short Description Of Project

Completing school is a huge goal for me and not only benefits me and my plans but it also gives an example to youth around me that though the academic route is difficult it is rewarding. I am driven to help those who truly need it and with this laptop I will be able to equip myself to do so.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

With a laptop I will be able to complete school tasks on the go and will be able to work later in evening even if the library is closed. I need to type papers, research and do online tutoring.

What Languages do you speak?
