She is part of the Prevention of Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Coalition, Mississippi Delta Catalyst Roundtable, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, and Fannie Lou Hammer Sister Roundtable. Her hobbies include singing, traveling, and movie going. She says that “nothing is impossible and quitting is not an option.”
