Anta, 20 — College, Junior
I’m co-founder and chief of staff of LYTEHouse (Lifting Youth Through Enrichment), a student organization that I started with three of my Morehouse brothers. LYTEHouse helps freshman students in their transition from high school to college by pairing them with upperclassmen with their same major. I love being able to build community on campus, while advancing personal and academic achievement. After graduation, I want to become a political journalist and share the stories of communities and people who are disadvantaged.
Martin Luther King College Prep — Chicago, Illinois (2015); Spelman College — Majoring in Political Science (Class of 2019)
Who Am I?
My friends from High School would probably describe me as an overachiever, book worm.
The last TV Show I watched was Power.
The funniest thing that happened to me recently was I woke up in a flux thinking I was late for an event. Rushed to get ready and sped off to campus only to find out that the event had been cancelled.
I got paid $4/hour tutoring freshman in high school as a junior in high school.
In my free time, my friends would be surprised to learn that I enjoy meditation.
The most “Atlanta” thing I’ve done in the past month was eat at American Deli!
In 10 years my dream job would be a Political Correspondent for CNN.
Get @ me!
