Hello!  My name is Anthoni Anna Wardlaw an undergraduate student studying at Alabama State University, majoring in psychology pre-med (specifically clinical psychology), aspiring to attend medical school to become a physician, specializing in the branches of psychiatry and possibly cardiothoracic surgery. I have maintained a 3.9 GPA (striving for a 4.0 of course) and I have been on the Dean’s List since my freshman year.

I am the recipient of the Incentive Academic Scholarship while also being a member of the Psychology Club since my first semester at ASU. This school year (2019-2020), I am a member of  TPaIDA (Tropical Pathology and Infectious Diseases Association). This program is a private educational organization that sends pre-med students to Peru to educate them in the basic science, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious tropical diseases. I am also certified in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel due to taking a dual-credit computer course at Stephen F. Austin High School during my senior year.

I have accomplished a number of hours in volunteer work.  Some of that work includes managing a Back to School “Backpack” Drive for the NJB Foundation, helping facilitate a Teen Health Summit for Young Mothers titled Young Mothers Don’t Quit! (YMDQ), assisting my golf coach as a trainer with the younger golfers, and shadowing Dr. Gregory Shannon, MD in his Gastroenterology Clinic at Memorial Hermann located in Sugar Land, Texas.

I also volunteer with my mother on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve to feed the homeless Super Feast with the City Wide Club at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, Texas, where thousands are served with not only traditional hot nutritious meals but also clothing, household items, shoes, blankets, coats, flu shots, medical examinations, food baskets, haircuts, new toys, etc.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Hello, my name is Ashlee Mitchell, a junior majoring in biology-pre-health from Fairfield, Alabama.  Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended Fairfield High Preparatory School in Fairfield, Alabama, where I was involved in the Student Government Association and the National Honor Society.  I was also a member of Air Force JROTC, and the Auxiliary Line of the Band.  I graduated with an advanced diploma and a 3.54 grade point average.

My mother’s name is Ericka Gladden, who has been so supportive of my choice to attend Alabama State University because I was so unsure as to where I wanted to pursue my formal higher education. I said a prayer and Alabama State University was the answer.

Since arriving at Alabama State University I have been involved in a number of community service projects where I have volunteered my time and energy.  I am a member of the W.E.B. DuBois Honor Society and a member of The Hornet Tribune staff, a staff I decided to work with because I enjoy reading as well as passing information to others. The Hornet Tribune has nice content, so it is the best of both worlds for me. I have gained a deeper level of understanding regarding content presentation and style. This is useful to me as a student and in my career.

I would encourage other students to work with The Hornet Tribune because there are many positions where one would be happy and helpful. Each individual has skills. With The Hornet Tribune, you would be surprised at which position suits you. It is always nice to be around people who share goals, but also offer different ideas themselves.  Once I graduate from Alabama State University in 2022, I plan to attend graduate school and pursue a master’s degree in nursing so that I can focus on the health of women and children.

Seeing that I am pursuing an elementary education degree, I wanted to go into a program that was strong and would provide me with the education I needed to succeed.

I chose to work with The Hornet Tribune because I believe it will provide me with skills that I can take with me into my career field. I also believe that this group of people I will be working with will be an inspiration to me.  The Hornet Tribune is a powerful and beneficial group that will help you build on certain skills while here at Alabama State University. There are several levels to this newspaper and there is something for everyone’s abilities. If you are new to what the Hornet Tribune does but want to be a part of it, they are willing to teach you with no hesitation.

My career goals are to teach for about ten years, become the vice principal/principal and one day, the superintendent.
