Why are you passionate about aviation?
My passion in aviation is driven by the way it makes me feel. You know the feeling you get when you drive around to clear your head and you get to take in the scenery and while taking in your surroundings you begin to enjoy the quiet that comes along with driving? Well, multiply that by 100! That feeling drives my passion.
What is your future aspiration?
To fly corporate and or private planes, as well as pursue my entrepreneur skills in getting contracts for UAV/Drones.
Why did you choose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT?
I chose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT to get my private pilot license since I heard about the program from a friend who is a Tuskegee NEXT alumni. I was excited to be associated with the name Tuskegee NEXT since I have been following the Tuskegee Airmen stories since I was 11 years old.
