"Number 490 in the class... Wow. It was such a blessing to close out this monumental experience with the best class and best group of women that will going to change the WORLD. The passion and tenacity that Spelman and her daughters have taught me will live through me forever. I'm grateful for the relationships that I will share for the rest of my life that began at Spelman. From HH to finally being off campus 🤦🏾‍♀️😂 August 9, 2013 was the first day of NSO and May 21, 2017 was the ending of a life changing experience. I know that I have become a free-thinking woman and will carry the charge of being that warrior woman per our President, President Campbell and staying LIT 🥂. I am just so proud of each of the women in our class and just know that this is NOT a good bye. I still will be like hey girllllll in 50 years when we become golden girls 👩🏾‍🎓💁🏾💙 I love you all so, so, so much! WE BOUT TO TAKEOVA THE ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION. Well, of course after that free year 😂. Like for the '99 and the 2000s😂💙" #staylit #BlackEducatedQueen #DegreedLikeMyMama #Thisreallyherdegreebecauseicantafforditlol  #wealreadychangingtheworldthough #thankyouSpelman #iloveyall #whyhbcu #HBCU #myhbcu #hbcupride #hbculove #hbcumade #hbcugrad #blackisbeautiful #blacklove #blackexcellence #gradszn #graduation #grad #classof2017 #2017 #spelman #spelman17 #spelmancollege #houston #texas

"Being asked why I chose an HBCU is a very important question to me! I grew up in a fortunate, predominantly white community in the suburbs of Maryland. In school, I would usually be the only black student in class. Growing up in a community where you are always reminded about being different, based off of skin color, created the strong desire to be around people who looked like me! Well, both my Mother and Step Father are graduates of Howard University. Hearing the stories about their experiences at their HBCU really captivated me and I only wanted the same for myself. Going to homecoming as a young child was like being in a completely different world, I had never been surrounded by so much black excellence and good times. So, I made it a priority to attend an HBCU! Now at Morehouse, beyond my academics, there was so much I learned about myself and my black identity. HBCUs are a place of comfort and self expression. With less racial boundaries, we are able to authentically pursue our interest, passions, and explore new roads. WhyHBCU? Well, I wouldn't be as whole as I am today, as I step out into the "real world", without my HBCU." #Morehouse #WhyHBCU #HBCU #HBCUPride

#Repost @skylxrfaith "I do not take this opportunity lightly. As a novice opinion columnist for the New York Times, I want to use the platform to dispel meritocratic myths about the black student experience--to share perspectives that don't base their power on respectability or hegemonic contextualization. When I was first interviewed and asked "why go to a black school?" I wrote draft after draft--eventually dedicating 20,000 words to a 900 word assignment.
My college is excellent, period. As are the 107 historically black institutions operating the world over to give space to other daughters and sons of the Trans-Atlantic trade legacy and our other siblings of the diaspora. I hope we all get our chance to share our unique, diverse narratives.

The editing process is often painful and many of my most intense points were lost, but I hope as time continues I get more chances to share my voice authentically. However, this is a start, a foot in the door, and I'm going to let myself be proud of that." #WhyHBCU

"Words can't even express the sentiments I feel in this very moment, on the eve of my commencement, and just the beginning of my journey to greatness.
Since 1881, women have passed through this institution with the mindset to excel and be change makers. Thank you Spelman College, for the opportunity to grow, be brilliant, and embrace my blackness unequivocally. Although I have a love/hate relationship with you, I understand that without you I wouldn't be half the woman I am today. I am honored to be apart of a legacy of excellence. It is a privilege and blessing to be apart of the class of 2017.
And a very special thank you to Dorian, for capturing moments what I will cherish for a lifetime, and ones that I can pass down for generations."
