Why I chose my school
My decision to go to University of Chicago ultimately came down to the money they offered me, plus it's an amazing school and my family is there. It came down to choosing a school based on how I would feel about it, what I would get out of the experience. I'm graduating debt free from U Chicago, and that was the biggest thing that I was so thankful for. When I do go to grad school for the thing that I really am passionate about and do want to do, I want to do it without money weighing on me, and other things swaying my decisions. I also love that the school is very, very similar to Stuart in values. They have a very small and supportive community, which I think is good in a big city like Chicago. I love Chicago, but it's nice to get away and be in a community that has your back.
I was attracted to Wake Forest University because of its close-knit community and its focus on challenging students academically. The collaborative energy and welcoming spirit on campus is similar to the sense of community that I grew up with at Stuart. Wake’s Pro Humanitate motto and the university’s focus on community service are reflective of the Sacred Heart values. I also chose Wake Forest because of its strong business school, small class sizes, and the ability to develop close relationships with professors. Additionally, the strong sense of school spirit and excitement on campus made me feel right at home.
Besides Spelman's supportive all-women environment, I was also interested in learning from African American women, such as myself. Spelman College offered so many opportunities that continued the path I started walking through our green brick walls. I plan to major in Political Science, and minor in African Studies or Comparative Women's Studies in the fall. Through Stuart, I aspire to continue educating our country about the harm of racism, ableism, classism, and discrimination towards the LGBTQIA+ community. It is thanks to Stuart that I have met such kind and caring individuals who have always allowed me to be myself.
I feel extremely lucky that I don't just love [Boston University] but I love the coaches and the team. I have built-in friends and a support system going into school. It's where my mom went, I love the campus, I love that it's in the city, I love Boston. I'm very good working on a schedule, so having games will motivate me to continue to do my work as I pursue a degree in advertising.
