I am a rising senior at Elizabeth City State University, and I am majoring in Elementary Education. I want to have a positive impact on the younger generation and teach them that education is important – it will take you far in life! I’m from Greenville, North Carolina.  In my free time I enjoy writing and reading. I also enjoy the beach and always look forward to celebrating my birthday each summer on the coast. After graduation, I want to move to Malibu, California and explore new places since I’ve always lived in North Carolina. As far as the environment is concerned there are a few interests that I feel are most important and that would include me helping the homeless. One day it is a dream of mine to open my own homeless shelter. I have also had an interest in zero waste for a while as well, and am excited to learn more how I can make an impact during my time with the Coastal Federation.
