Born and raised on the westside of Chicago Illinois, I become a member of this illustrious sorority on February 27, 1998, through the Omicron Delta Charter at Eastern Illinois University. I proudly share the amazing title of “legacy” with my sister, Chasity Peace. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. I decided to further my education by earning a master’s degree from Eastern in 2003 in Technology emphasizing in Training and Development and a Masters in School Social work from Jane Addams School of Social Work, University of Illinois at Chicago in 2008.
