Extracurricular Activities: I was a varsity athlete for two years. This was the first year I didn’t play. I’m very active within the Morehouse Business Association (MBA), which is a program [I’ve had a leadership position in] for two years that exposes the student body to opportunities in business and prepares them for the business world. My Freshman year I was selected for being outstanding by upperclassmen to be part of the Freshman Prodigy Program.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
I have a passion for [my sport]. It taught me to balance my time and to do multiple things at once. There’s comradery, and a lot of my friends came from being on the team. It’s like a job because of the time commitment, so you can imagine you get very close to your teammates. The MBA was more impactful because of the opportunities it gave me to be a leader within the Business department. It provides a gateway to be in key leadership positions. A lot of people get their internships by going to an MBA event that companies sponsor. We also have a lot of recruiters who’ll be at an event, where you can put a face to the name on your resume.
