Why CAU?  I chose CAU because I wanted to attend a school where I could learn more about black history, while being taught by black professors, and because my major was ranked high for a media program.

One piece of advice: To never give up on your dreams, because everyone’s story is different. Always remain humble, positive, and never get to comfortable.

Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years? Whatever Gods will is for me but if I could predict it would be to have gotten my masters degree, acted in a feature film, wrote at least two featured films, and honestly learning from all of my mistakes and being a better person than I was yesterday.

Favorite season: Fall

What’s your favorite holiday?  My favorite holiday is Christmas because I enjoy seeing all of my family together for the holidays and to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Do you have any siblings? Yes I have four.
