Why I think Hanover is a good choice:
You can't go wrong with a liberal arts education. Hanover College provides the perfect environment to experience a variety of unique academic genres. From the humanities to foreign languages, pre-professional advising programs in business, law, health science and exercise science, Hanover students will find the challenge they need academically in a classroom with less than 20 students. Now that is an experience that may be hard to find or duplicate on other college campuses.
I also appreciate Hanover College's commitment to the community and to multicultural awareness. The school has a great legacy of uplifting and educating students from diverse ethnic backgrounds and cultural communities.
Since coming to Hanover, I have discovered the legacy of Benjamin Templeton. He was the first African-American to attend Hanover in 1832, only five years after the College's founding. Templeton became an important leader of the free black community of Philadelphia through the 1850's. He went on to become the pastor of Second African Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pa., which he served until his death in 1858. Wow, what a legacy of leadership!
Hobbies and Interest:
I love music of all kinds and spend much of my time listening to and searching for new and unique music. I call myself a part-time poet and closet spoken-word artist. I love to write and express myself through words. I have always been a fan of movies and theater. I also serve as the co-leader of a young women's mentorship program called the Sisters' Circle.
Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, Florida, Georgia and the remainder of the southeastern and southwestern continental U.S.
I received my bachelor of arts degree in African and Diaspora Studies from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn., and spent four years working in development, alumni relations and undergraduate admission for my alma mater. Although I am new to the Hanover community, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and see great value in the Hanover academic and social experience.
