HC: How would you describe your first semester at Hampton?

BP: Definitely eye-opening! College comes with a lot of free time with which I had to learn isn’t really free time *laughs*. You can use your time to be social and/or nap all day or you can go to the library and study all day. You can also learn to have healthy amounts of both. And that’s what I had to learn to do. I also learned the whole “broke college student” thing is definitely not a joke.

HC: What are your goals for the 2018 year?

BP: I just want to be a better version of myself. I feel like this is going to be my year. I want to get closer to God and keep him first in everything I do and the rest will follow.

HC: How would you describe your personality?

BP: I would definitely consider myself a goofball. I’m always laughing at something, but I’m also super sweet and I love meeting new people.


HC: Who is your favorite artist?

BP: My husband of 8 years... Bruno Mars!

HC: What brought you to Hampton University?

BP: Honestly the scholarship money brought me here, but I’m glad that I came here. I’ve met some amazing people and made some lasting memories that I wouldn’t have gotten if I went somewhere else.

HC: Do you have any special talents?

BP: Eating, sleeping, and Netflixing are what I’m best at, but I’m pretty decent at playing the flute and tennis as well. I’ve played the flute since I was in the sixth grade and I’ve played tennis since I was in the tenth grade.

HC: What do you want to accomplish during your 4 years in undergrad?

BP: I plan to bring up my GPA this semester and keep it up throughout the rest of my time here. I also plan to make lifelong friends and continue to grow into the best person that I can be.

HC: What is a quote that you live by?

BP: “The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?” It keeps me from stressing about things and keeps me focused on doing me.

HC: Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

BP: Chance The Rapper. Not only do I love his music, but I also admire the way he’s constantly involved in his community, especially in the public school systems.

HC: If you can have any superpower what would it be and why?

BP: Teleportation. Because all this walking all over campus and stuff is overrated.
