Why are you passionate about aviation?
I love to travel, and I think flying is the best form of transportation. I am amazed by airplanes, especially airliners or fighter jets. The noise they generate is special and exciting. I want to have the opportunity to use the power of flight and reach every corner of the world.
What is your future aspiration?
I want to become a commercial airline pilot and continue mentoring and inspiring other minorities by making them aware of the many opportunities aviation has to offer them.
Why did you choose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT?
I applied to the Tuskegee NEXT program because I saw an incredible opportunity to take a large step forward toward my ultimate goal of becoming a commercial pilot. Also, it is a great way to help continue the Tuskegee Airmen's legacy by helping increase the number of black pilots flying in the world.
