Outside of the classroom, I'm able to explore my interests, such as being on the cheer team. It's an accomplishment I feel most proud of, being a part of something special that influences my growth as a person.

Kymauni Walker

I am the president of the Black Student Union at CUC, and I served as vice president last year. It was a great experience being put in a leadership position early on as a freshman.
