During my Undergraduate tenure at PVAMU, I was blessed with several opportunities to attend
conferences for my many organizational affiliations. I learned a great deal from the brilliant seminars
and workshops that were hosted by several companies and from the distinguished students that were
in attendance from the many Universities. As a result of the Leadership Institute, I received many
opportunities for employment. Upon graduation, I accepted a full-time job that I obtained just three
weeks after attending the conference.
