My school is a historical black college surrounded with great people. I would choose Tuskegee because it has so much history.

Attending Tuskegee University, allowed me to broaden my views and perspective of life. I was able to face challenges and conquer them with no problem. Being away from home for the first time, allowed me to gain more maturity and wisdom. I became involved in various clubs, and was introduced to many activities I never thought I would be interested in. I became a tour guide for "The Oaks," home of Booker T. Washington, and a volunteer at the George Washington Carver Museum. I also went through woods with my professors, searching for streams to test the water for alkalinity, hardness, and pH, due to an internship I earned through out the school year. I met new people and created new bonds. I believe I enhanced my knowledge in the field of Chemistry, and I am ready to learn more of it so that I can be the best at anything I decide to do. I was invited to do an internship at Iowa State University under the Center for Biorenewable Chemicals, and I proudly accepted it. I finished my first year with a 4.0 grade point average. My first year of college was very successful, and I plan on many more successful years at Tuskegee University.
