I Found My Niche at Philander Smith College

Student Name: Lonyai

School: Philander Smith College

When I heard about Philander, I was pleasantly surprised because I had never heard of this Historically Black College, so I had that mindset to just go! Honestly, I was quite skeptical due to the fact that Philander was approximately 9 hours away from my home, Chicago, Illinois.⁠

At Philander, I am a very active person, on campus. I am the President and Ivy Leaf Reporter of the 💗💚 Gamma Alpha Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated., a member of the Pre-Alumni Student Council, a member of ThePrettyPosse, a social media blog on campus, and I am a consecutive 4.0 scholar. I am very pleased with the networking opportunities that I have gained during my time as a Philandarian, and I am here to make my mark, as well as change my life for the better. I also am an advocate for social justice and education.⁠

After Philander, I plan on attending graduate school to obtain a masters in Urban Affairs. I feel that I am ready to continue my education journey. I appreciate my HBCU! – @clapfor_yaye
