Why did you choose UNC Charlotte?
I chose UNC Charlotte because of the diverse culture and the rich learning experience. Not to mention, it’s located right in the heart of Charlotte!
UNC Charlotte highlights/favorite memory:
Winning the 2021 Women in Business Scholarship award! It was an amazing event, and I met so many trailblazing women and mentors whom I’m still in touch with today.
Faculty/staff member who made an impact on you:
Dr. Natasha Randle is an amazing professor who motivated me to pursue opportunities that weren’t readily available and accessible to students like myself. She saw potential in me when I didn’t see it in myself.
Advice for the next generation of Business Niners:
"Take your time and enjoy every experience! Go after every experience, pursue each opportunity and don’t allow yourself to be held back by fear."
