“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
My favorite quote:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not
be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther
To me, this quote speaks volumes not only in terms of race and skin color, but in
terms of religious and political beliefs, gender and sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality,
etc. We live in an interconnected world and whether we like it or not, we need each other.
How a person acts and treats his fellow man should be the most important, if not the sole,
determining factor in how that person is perceived.
- A little bit about my background:
I am African American. I was born in the United States to a Togolese mother and an
Angolan father. I currently live in Dumfries, VA, with my mother, my maternal
grandmother, and my brother. While in Dumfries, I’ve gone to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic
School from kindergarten to eighth grade, graduating as valedictorian of my class, and I’ve
recently graduated from C. D. Hylton Senior High School as salutatorian of my class.
- A little more about myself
I have a love of learning about the world, which led me to pursue Global Development
Studies at university, and learning in general. I was known to walk the halls with a stack of
books in my arms, in addition to my very heavy backpack. I love reading and writing as well

the second grade. Though I like hanging out with my friends, I’m definitely an introvert, so I
treasure my “me” time. Someday I want to be a polyglot – someone who speaks more
languages fluently than the average multilingual.
- What motivates me at work?
The desire to do my best and do the best are what motivate me at work. I’m sometimes
what people would consider a perfectionist, so I don’t like to “fail” – my definition of failure
anyways. I work hard for the best possible outcome, according to the standards I was raised
- Random fun facts about myself:
In June 2019, I traveled to Japan with my Human Geography teacher and a group of
friends/classmates. On the second to last day, I got left in Akihabara by my friends who
went back to the bus without me and I didn’t know my way back. That was not a pleasant
day for me, but at least I wasn’t lost in Europe.
- What I am Hoping for my internship with the company:
I simply expect a peek into workforce life and the opportunity to gain experience from it. As
someone who just became a legal adult, there is still much for me to learn. The earlier the
