About Me:   I'm a recent graduate of USA from Gulfport, MS. I was the first in my family to complete college and in the beginning the process was very overwhelming. My recruiter actually helped me with every aspect of college preparation from majors to student organizations. With his help, and the support of my family and friends I became part of the South Alabama Family. I majored in Marketing Management and got highly involved with organizations such as SGA, The African American Student Association, USA Southerners, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., and Southbound Orientation. My experience was awesome and I have been blessed to be able to return the favor.

Education:   USA Bachelor of Science in Business Administration   Concentration: Marketing Management
