Why are you passionate about aviation?
It has been a dream of mine to fly people around the world and experience the different cultures of the places I have a chance to visit.

Why did you choose to apply to Tuskegee NEXT?
I heard about Tuskegee NEXT when I visited Illinois Aviation Academy with my family. I had once met a Tuskegee Airman and was fascinated by his story. I knew it would be a great honor to take part in the Tuskegee NEXT program and that it would help me reach my future goal of becoming a pilot.
