Brittany from Washington, DC
I micro-niche within a beautifully unique DC community. This University pushes you, disappoints you, then drives you forward to take control of your own destiny. One of the only HBCU experiences that exposes you to all walks of life and cultures with such self-expressive enlightenment.
