Bold Points






I am a Junior Marketing Major at Howard University from Dallas, Texas. My academic goals lie in completing my Bachelors degree from Howard University and then pursing a Masters degree. Outside of the classroom, I am a devoted athlete on the Howard University Women's Golf Team. I am passionate about growing diversity in the game of golf and helping the younger generation reap the benefits of the game. I enjoy growing professionally and learning more about the entertainment, sports, and business sectors.

    1. My parents instilled in me the importance of committing one hundred percent of yourself in everything you do and finishing every commitment I start. This means, despite my eagerness to participate in every opportunity that is presented to me, I have to be wise and selective when it comes to choosing my priorities. When I first moved to Washington D.C. as a student athlete at Howard University, I chose to make decisions based on this moral foundation. My parents and I agreed that my top priorities were my sport, academics, and my health. As a starting golfer on the Howard University Women’s Golf Team, I’ve chosen to commit many hours a week to my team, my coaches, and the program as a whole. It is very important to me that I show up as a leader by splitting my time between workouts, practice, and being a supportive teammate. My academics is also one of my top priorities, so in order to maintain my 3.95 GPA, I prioritize attending classes, getting to know my professors, and studying often. In order to maintain my health, I also prioritize cooking, sleeping, and fueling my social life. With each year of school, I am able to balance more commitments so this year I was more involved in Howard’s Student-Athlete Ministry and programs in the School of Business. Next year, I hope to continue to make more time for student organizations. 2. From an early age, I was passionate about business. In high school, I participated in business programs, which led me to pursue an international business degree at Howard University. After my first year, I was certain that business was the right field for me. However, an internship with the USGA exposed me to various career paths within the golf industry, prompting me to switch my major to marketing with a focus on sales, corporate partnerships, and championship operations. This summer, I am interning with three golf industry companies to further refine my career interests. As the lead intern for Dunning and Greg Norman in New York, I am gaining experience in sales, championship operations, and analytics. At Somerset Hills Country Club in New Jersey, I am learning about hospitality, golf course operations, and tournament planning. Additionally, as a Team Lead for the USGA Pathways Internship Program, I will mentor new interns at the US Open Championship, enhancing my leadership skills, networking opportunities, and exposure to golf industry careers. 3.One of my early passions evolved from my experience as a young Black female golfer. Since 2018, I have served as a youth golf camp counselor at our city’s public golf course, leading teams of 15 to 30 kids aged 5 to 15 each summer. During my time as a junior golfer, I rarely saw role models who looked like me, leading to feelings of imposter syndrome. Playing for Howard University helped me realize there is a place for me in golf. Through these summer camps, I connect with the youth and serve as a representative for young girls and children of color. I also mentor and play with the kids whenever I’m in Dallas. For example, I often take a young boy named Jesse, who is autistic, to our local golf course, teaching him golf etiquette, course management, and how to enjoy the game. Our partnership has improved his quality of life, giving him motivation and excitement. This experience has fueled my passion for increasing diversity and access for youth in golf. 4.Receiving the Hulede Collegiate Golf Scholarship would significantly enhance my collegiate experience by aligning my academic and athletic goals while alleviating financial stress and providing invaluable mentorship. This scholarship would give my family and me peace of mind, allowing me to focus intensely on my studies and golf performance. My goal is to graduate without debt and avoid relying on my parents financially. Through my dedication to academics and athletics, I have covered most of my tuition, but the rising costs of living in Washington, D.C., and Howard University’s tuition compel me to seek additional scholarships. Living with my single mother, it's important for me to ease her financial burden. This scholarship would also enable me to pursue career-enhancing opportunities, such as internships, during the summers. The mentorship component of the Hulede Collegiate Golf Scholarship is especially compelling. I admire the fundraising efforts behind the scholarship and believe in giving back to supportive communities. I hope to gain valuable advice on making a similar impact. In essence, this scholarship would support my immediate goals as a student and golfer and have a lasting impact on my post-college career, enabling me to invest in my future success.
