Why are you passionate about aviation?
Being able to travel and see different sights from the sky was always something that I liked to do, and the field of aviation was a great career in which I could pursue this passion.

What is your future aspiration?
My future aspiration is to obtain my Private Pilots License so that I may travel to various and distant places that I’ve never been before. It is said that your job should be something that you love to do, and you would feel like you haven’t worked a day in your life because it is one thing you enjoy doing.

Why did you choose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT?
I felt Tuskegee Next would be that foundation in which I could stack my building blocks to success and help me towards my future goals and aspirations in life. I’m appreciative to be given this opportunity to start from this young age in which most young people don’t have the opportunity to do so.
