Work Experience
 

Author - Choose901

​October 2016 - October 2017

 

​Working with Choose901, a non-profit organization within the Memphis area, I was afforded a vast array of professional and personal opportunities. Blogging for Choose901 not only gave me the pleasure of meeting some of Memphis' finest, but it also gave me first-hand interaction with the beautiful Bluff City.  For examples of the work I was doing with this organization, follow this link:

​My work with AmeriCorps as a City Year Corps Member has just started. So far I have been awarded a focus list of bright but troubled children who I plan to refocus using tools to help strengthen them within the fields of attendance, behavior, and coursework. 

Education
 

Miami International University of Art and Design

The University of Memphis

​2016 - present

 

During my time at the University of Memphis, I have thrived and excelled beyond my wildest dreams. Taking my education seriously and always aiming toward positions of leadership, I took it upon myself to join the Black Scholars Unlimited organization at my university. Joining this organization, I also rose to a committee position doing public relations for the organization.  Furthermore, the University of Memphis  afforded me the opportunity to project my vocal talents as news anchor for the Tiger News station. Additionally, the University of Memphis awarded me the opportunity to display my artwork in a solo exhibition within their Box Gallery. This exhibition took place during the months of September through November 2017.
