What will be your degree? What’s your degree in?
My degree will be in Fine Arts. I was a theater major while I was at HU and had to leave after my junior year because I ran out of money. And a few years ago, my son got accepted to Howard University and he inspired me to go back and get my degree. I thought we were going to walk together in 2022, but real life happens. Just like it happened to me, I had to withdraw after my junior year, real life happened with my son. So, unfortunately, we won’t be walking together, but hopefully, he’ll be walking soon.
