Emotional discomfort, when accepted, rises, crests and falls in a series of waves.

 

Q&A: Why did you choose a HBCU?

Ambree: My mom and all of her siblings graduated from Benedict. I saw the value in it. I
visited Spelman in Atlanta, but SC State was a great school for me and it was close to home. SC State’s business school was tailored to fit my career path at the time.

Q&A: Tell me what is your job title now, and how did you get to this point?

Dianne: I have a degree in education. I am retired and loving it! I was a seventh grade teacher in New Jersey, I then went on to become a reading specialist, and then I received my master’s degree in education. From there, I became a first and third grade teacher in Camden, South Carolina.

Q&A: How did your college experience prepare you for your career?

Bria: At Howard, I feel as though we are taught to never take “no” for an answer. I learned to keep pushing. When you want to plan something on campus or in the community, you may get shut down initially, but keep going.
