Before I became a member of the Alpha Esquire Program, I had no idea what profession I wanted to pursue. This program granted me the opportunity to interact with accomplished African-Americans in different career fields such as doctors, lawyers, teachers and engineers. I made it my mission to absorb as much knowledge as possible, for each of their success stories held a valuable lesson that I could use once I began my college career. Although I had a relationship with all the mentors, my closest bond was with the engineers. They influenced my decision to pursue a career in civil engineering, and once I made that commitment they provided me with the tools to succeed.
When it was time to begin applying for universities, they made sure I chose universities that best suited me. In addition, they provided me with scholarship opportunities and even wrote my letters of recommendation to make me more competitive. I am currently completing my junior year at Fisk University, where I am majoring in Physics and Mathematics with a concentration in civil engineering. I have to say the Alpha Esquire Program made a major contribution to my success. My ultimate goal is to utilize my degree to give back to underprivileged African-American communities, a value instilled in me through this program.
