I am officially a Junior at Spelman College


I received my final grades! Despite all the troubles of the semester, I earned above a 3.0 GPA. I’m not extremely thrilled because I was shooting for a 4.0 but I’m thankful I made it through! I don’t believe in settling because everyone has the potential to do better! With that being said I will continue to work hard because personal growth is never ending process. This summer will be filled with a lot of opportunities for growth in all aspect of my life!

I’m looking forward to starting my internship with Youth Villages in two weeks! Youth Villages is non-profit organization dedicated to assisting troubled youth in creating a positive lifestyle for themselves. I’m praying that my positive attitude and caring spirit will have an impact on the lives of these children. I believe that anyone can create second chance for themselves with the right attitude. Stay tuned for my blogs this summer about my experiences along the way.

I’m also very excited to make a lot of appearances and volunteer with my sister queens! In 68 days, I will headed down to Virginia Beach to compete for the title of International Miss 2015. Time flies, I can’t wait to meet all the contestants! It’s going to be an unforgettable experience. Who’s team are you on ? ‪#‎TeamDenise‬

Less than one week after internationals, I will be back in Atlanta to model at the August Prom Mart! This has been a dream of mine for several years and It’s happening, WOW! I’m beyond grateful all these opportunities to expand my skill set, create new relationships but most importantly impact the lives of others. I can’t begin to thank the people who have encouraged me to never stop chasing my dreams

DO BETTER LUNCHESDO BETTER is an organization dedicated to self-improvement through selfless action and positive social change. Know Better, #DoBetter. Each year, They conduct a food run in an unprivileged community. This year, we dedicated our efforts to the West End Community. We woke up bright and early to put together over 250 lunches filled with snacks and water. Around 30 students packed into cars and drove around the surrounding area to pass out food to the homeless. Our last stop was to the Piedmont Homeless shelter. We met several homeless children and they taught us how to play ninja. Do Better is happy to announce that they surpassed their goal and feed over 250 people today. STAY TUNED for upcoming events.
