1. What made you want to come to Hofstra University

Being as Hofstra was my first choice school, there were several things that drew me to it. The main three things I would say are: the communications school, the location, and the first pride guid who toured me around campus.

 

2. What clubs are you involved in on campus? 

I am involved with NAACP Hofstra Chapter, Collegiate Women of Color (CWC), WRHU-FM, Hofstra Today, The Hofstra Chronicle, and last but certainly not least Zeta Phi Eta.

 

3. Out of those clubs which ones are you the most involved in?

That’s a hard question because I feel like I am involved in all of them, but if I had to choose a top two (regarding this semester) I would say WRHU and NAACP. For WRHU I am a morning show host and a host for the music show, my tasks include: coming up with content with my co-host to fill a two hour show time slot, including interviews, news discussions, and more. For NAACP I am the community service chair and that includes making sure my club is signed up for charitable events, creating authentic service projects. Recently my role has extended to heading the service committee.

 

4. Where do you see yourself after you graduate?

After completing grad school I would like to become a news reporter and/or a social justice/advocacy correspondent. Also, down the road I would like to teach journalism on the collegiate or High School level. And many people ask why I want to go to grad school and not just jump directly in the field; My answer for that is simply I want to delve deeper into my concentration I plan to go into in the field and I need it to teach.
