First, I would like thank Nicole and Stepping In The Right Direction for opening my eyes to HBCUs, because if I had not gone on the tour I probably would have never even thought about them. 3 years ago I went on the HBCU tours, and fell in love with HOWARD UNIVERSITY. I loved the campus and the atmosphere. Ever since then thats where I wanted to go, and this year I’m a senior and applied. Being so blessed, I was accepted and also got an athletic scholarship for track & field. I am so blessed for all the accomplishments I achieved so far, and many more to come in the future.
