One piece of advice: If you have a cannon, shoot it. (Everyone has something special, and they should use it.)

Aspirations after college: To inspire more black men to attend and graduate from college.

Why did you become an Orientation Guide? To instill the sense of greatness my previous orientation guides instilled in me.

Why did you start college early? Graduated high school at 15. I have a hunger for education that my parents instilled in me.

Advice for prospective freshman? If no one is talking about you, then you’re not doing anything. Be you, be great because you are great.

Interesting Fact: I’m an old soul—meaning I like old music and connecting with older people.

Favorite sneaker: Reebok Pump

Why an HBCU? I’m really big on black power and the advancement of my people.

What would like to leave behind when you graduate from CAU? A good ol’ sense of panther pride
