Why are you passionate about aviation?
As a young girl I have always been fascinated with planes. I love the science behind the concepts of flight. Bessie Coleman has always been a role model to me. I admired her drive to follow her passion and defy all the social conflicts that went against her. My passion for aviation grows as my pursuit, and comfort of making history rises.
What is your future aspiration?
In the future I hope to establish a flight school. I would love to introduce more minorities to the field of aviation. Through my passion for aviation, I aspire to manage my own aircraft business. Aviation is not a well-known career in the African American community. Therefore, by owning my own practice in this field, I hope to inspire other minorities to join me in this journey.
Why did you choose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT?
My senior year of high school; I was graced with the opportunity of gaining Tammara Holmes as a mentor. Throughout the year, I learned more about the Tuskegee Airmen and the Tuskegee NEXT program. I knew that this program would be the opportunity of a lifetime. The Tuskegee NEXT program encourages my passion, dedication, and hard work to achieve my goal of becoming a commercial pilot
