Why are you passionate about aviation?
I grew up with many amazing role models in my life but there was a huge lack in people from the black community in STEM. I desire more diversity in aviation, so I’d like to become a positive influence to younger generations and show them that they are the future of this field.
What is your future aspiration?
I hope that earning my pilots license here will open doors to a future as an astronaut.
Why did you choose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT?
I saw the amazing opportunity that Tuskegee NEXT was presenting to youth in America and saw it as a chance to pursue my dream. Without Tuskegee, I may not have had the tools to become a pilot.
