Despite a 2-7 record and devastating loss to the Seahawks yesterday was a great experience.
On May 11, 2013 I became an alumnus of North Carolina Central University. As I enter the next chapter of my life NCCU will always remain a part of me. NCCU made me the man I am today and the man I will be for the rest of my life. I want to thank you NCCU through the ups and downs for these last 5 years.

No, I’m not talking about Nike. Last night I brought 2013 in the best way possible, at church. The message was simple, “Just Do It”. Stop asking God, or others to do something you can do for yourself. I’ve realized that too many times I ask God for substance that I should be answering myself. God can’t make you a better person, if you don’t make yourself a better person. Miracles don’t just happen, they are the result of people making it happen. You can tell yourself that you’re going to do something, and be very successful but until you actually do something about that, its just words that result in a unattainable goal.
I will go into 2013 with a “Just Do It” mindset. As I’ll be wrapping up my college career this year, I plan to embark on my journalism career. I have prepped myself throughout college for this next chapter of my life by exposing myself to diverse topics. Covering those diverse topics, has made me become a more flexible journalist while improving my craft. While these are little wins in my life, I know the only way I can achieve the ultimate goal is to “Just Do It”.
And by the way….Happy New Year.

Football season came to an end but I had a great semester covering North Carolina Central football. I took many stills throughout the season, however this is my favorite still of the season.
Facts of life.

One of the many shots I got of Jamla artist, Heather Victoria at her showcase in Raleigh, NC at the Five Star Restaurant on Saturday night.
This weekend was a very eventful weekend for myself, full of many “first times”. On Friday night I attended a local art show at the Golden Belt Art Studio in Durham, NC. The experience was refreshing and gave me a new found respect for artists, and the culture of art. I learned that art is very similar to journalism, the pay is not great- You’re in the business of journalism or art because of the love you have for it. The art show was the first of three events I covered over the weekend. On Saturday, I spent the evening covering my first love-Football. For the first and last time I was able to cover the annual Aggie-Eagle Classic with my school, North Carolina Central University taking on the Aggies of North Carolina A&T State University. I couldn’t feel my feet and ears after leaving the game, but it was definitely worth it. I ended my weekend on Saturday night attending my great friend and talented Jamla artist, Heather Victoria’s showcase in Raleigh, NC. The show was terrific, and at the end the crowd wished her a happy birthday. Shots of the weekend coming soon.
