Because I’m Unusual! I have an incredibly interesting background from where I was born to where I have worked, so I’m always looking for nontraditional companies and founders. The opportunity to support building out Unusual’s unique programming also really stood out to me. Our Academy and Internship programs are really special to me and are so different from anything other firms are doing.
I’m a former pageant girl. I served as Miss Clark Atlanta University, Miss Black Texas, and placed Top 10 at Miss Black USA.
