My professors, mentors and involvement in our FAMUnity helped me blossom inot a successful prime time tv news anchor, a legislative director for a former U.S Congressman, and now a proud ambassador for my beloved alma mater. FAMU helped me realized my parents were right. ..it’s where yo’re going that matters in life. God bless you FAMU. You helped me arrive!
