Winston-Salem State University
Bachelors of Arts, English
My time at WSSU was utterly transformative. I made over 1,000 mistakes and learned that failure is a prerequisite to success. I did not begin as an English major, but while I searched for what came to be my natural abilities. I began to understand what Laura Grace Weldon calls the "hummingbird" personality. I cultivated all of my skills, and my "garden" of success flourished.
