Tuesday is the Afro-Fusion dance workshop, Wednesday she introduces a faculty panel, “Do We Really Matter? Critical Race Theory, Racial Disparity and Campus Climate,” Thursday is the ever-popular Afro Essence and Friday is the Black and Boujee party. She’ll wrap up the week with the Kings and Queens Conference on Saturday. The senior biology major, chemistry minor and member of the Biological Sciences Biology, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, is on track to become a veterinarian. Along the way this campus leader raises awareness and understanding about racial equality.
