The most important lesson I learned at Bowie was to take every day one step at a time. Make no regrets. It’s during your college years when you learn who your TRUE allies are among faculty and students.
In 2009, I had complete control of the Homecoming Gospel Fest. It was a complete success! That whole week leading up to the event, I was stressed to the max. In the 15 minutes leading up to the event, as the guys were bringing in the organ and setting up the speakers, I said to myself, “Job well done. You made it happen!” It’s so hard to fill up the Myers Auditorium in the MLK Communication Arts Center, but it was packed 3/4 full!
PROFESSOR RICHARD LOWERY! No other statement is needed. Professors like him should be populating every school in America. It is not his mission to teach you the book – his mission is to be a force behind your growth. He has been a MAJOR force behind making me who I am!
As Business Manager for the Bowie State Gospel Choir under Dr. Joan Hillsman, I learned how to deal with a very diverse group of people with decency and respect. I learned how to pull off events with little to no notice and how to conduct business properly parallel to my major.
I was born into a family that thrives on entrepreneurship. So naturally, I have several business ventures that I would like to see come to pass very soon.
I want to attend graduate school, but I don’t know where yet. I may come back to Bowie!
