I’ve had many defining moments in my life. One that stands out at this time was my decision to attend a Historically Black College and University. I attended Southern University in Louisiana and it opened my eyes up to a different culture outside of the Oklahoma culture that I was used to. Also, I was surrounded around people that looked like me so race was never an excuse or insecurity. Either I was going to be great or I wasn’t but either way it wasn’t going to be because I was black.
