Hailing from Detroit, Michigan I never thought that I’d end up at Georgetown University. However, after my first campus tour, Georgetown became the school that I just had to attend. The alumni were amazing during my college search. Georgetown alum happily offered me to stay at their homes so I could spend time at Georgetown or they would give me their information so I could call and ask them questions.

I came to Georgetown believing that I would study Government, become politically adept and then take those skills back to Detroit to help restructure the city in a more positive direction. Two Government classes later and I found that it was actually I who needed to be “restructured.” It will always be important for me to give back to my city but I’ve learned that giving back in the form of running for an elected position was not for me. For a moment this made me think that I made the wrong decision to attend Georgetown. My thoughts were, “you don’t come to Georgetown or the politically charged city of Washington D.C. and not study something in the field of politics.” Once I freed myself from that mindset I found a variety of interest at Georgetown and explored the culturally diverse  city of D.C.

I have a strong interest in music, film and performance and it’s been wonderful exploring these while at Georgetown. I’ve been able to work movie screenings, perform in shows in the Gonda Theatre and help a few friends record their albums. My Georgetown story has been an exploration of my passions, beliefs and goals.
