Born and raised in the powerful District of Columbia – Metro area, home to the legend President Barack Obama; Audrey McKay, an accomplished author, CEO of Two Shoes Publishing House, former scientist, and graduate of Spelman College has decided to take a few moments from her successful life to share her famed “HBCU experience”.
Where are you from? How did you first hear about HBCUs?
I grew up in the D.C. Metro area, and I had always known about HBCU’s but I hadn’t really planned to attend one over any other type of school in the beginning.
What made you choose an HBCU over a pwi?
When I visited the school, (Spelman), it just touched something in me and I felt like it was the only place I wanted to spend my college years in.
