The faculty bring out the best in me and their honest feedback has sharpened me in so many ways. The program is a great fit for students interested in government or the nonprofit world. 

Campus involvement: I am so proud to be a graduate student here. I received a graduate assistantship at the NDSU Graduate School which has made my life so much easier. I was a member of the Black Student Association while completing my undergraduate degree. That’s also when I began volunteering and working with children. I love the work that student organization introduced me to.

Career goals: I will run my own nonprofit. My goal in life is to help children succeed. I want to implement policies and programs that help children read better and become the best version of themselves. I am a first-generation college student and I wanted to prove to myself that I could go to graduate school and inspire those around me that it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.
