What made you choose to attend USC Marshall?
I ultimately chose to attend USC Marshall to live so close to Downtown Los Angeles, a business and entrepreneurship hub, have access to the myriad resources that Marshall has to offer, and leverage the network of the Trojan Family.

What advice do you wish you had known while applying to college?
Prior to applying to college, I wish i asked more people to read and critique my personal statements and essays. I got very caught up in writing what the university wanted to hear instead of writing to represent myself beyond my accolades.

MSA

Black Business Student Association
Poetry
Painting

I also appreciate the perfect weather and the abundance of local gems that my friends and I spend our weekends hanging at.
