Thank you for supporting the My HBCU Matters brand and movement!
As an Entrepreneur, Educator, and Activist I created this brand and movement because I believe we must ensure our traditions and legacies not only continue but thrive; within the years to come.
I am currently a Graduate Student at the “Clark Atlanta University” located within Atlanta, GA, earning my MBA with a focus in Operations. A native of Atlanta, GA and a graduate of Columbia College Chicago, I am a major advocate for education, youth development, and community.
Since being an Full-Time Educator within Atlanta Public Schools at Benjamin E. Mays High School, I have consistently had students and mentees to drop out of college because of balances owed on their student accounts. Per my experience, the amount of money that causes student to drop out is between $500-$2,500, which may be minimal to some, but life changing for most.
Our goal is to make sure that My HBCU Matters and the Our HBCUs Matter Foundation uplifts students as they reach for success in earning their degree from an HBCU.
