Why do you love NSBE and what inspired you to join the REB?

I love NSBE because the organization supports innovation in a family-oriented environment while maintaining black excellence in both technical education and every day life. My personal NSBE involvement gave me a sense of guidance and structure that will grow with me the rest of my college career and beyond. Having an organization hold me accountable for my actions has greatly influenced my work ethic and overall career development. I joined the REB because I want to expand my passion for NSBE on a regional scale. I want to pass on the “NSBE Love” by positively impacting our youth, communities, and quality of education. I’m grateful for this organization and I will continue putting in hard work for the betterment of the entire Cajun zone.
