How does it feel to be this year's Homecoming King?

It’s an AMAZING feeling! I am so thankful to God for this blessing and for everyone who voted for me. All the love and support I received during campaigning was overwhelming. I will do my best to represent Winthrop in a positive way!

What brought you to Winthrop?

I knew that I wanted to come to Winthrop since the 8th grade when I heard that they had a great music program. That’s when I made up my mind and decided that Winthrop was going to my home. (I know that this might sound crazy since I am not a music major now.)

What all are you involved in on campus?

I am a Resident Assistant, the Vice President of Winthrop University Association of Black Journalist, DSU member, and I also have my own radio show called the Lowdown.

What do you plan on doing with your MCOM degree?

I plan on going into radio and hopefully work my way up to having my own radio show.

How do you balance school and extracurricular activities?

I am still learning how to master balancing school and extracurricular things, but all I do is take it one day at a time.

What is your favorite spot on campus?

Digs! There is so much you can do and there is always something going on in Digs. My friends are always around and we just hang out and share a couple laughs. And lets not forget the food like Popeye’s and Miso!

What is your dream job?

My dream job would be to have my own talk show where I would talk about important topics such as sliding in to people DMs and Mariah Carey and then end my show with “AND YOU GET A CAR AND YOU GET A CAR, AND YOU GET A CAR!”

Here's a fun one: if you had a million dollars, what would you do with the money?

I would pay my tithes and offering so the Lord won’t get me! Then I would pay my tuition so Winthrop can leave me alone! I would buy my parents a new house and cars. Finally I would invest my money so I can make more money!
