Hello!  My name is Christine Shelton, a junior at Alabama State University who has declared English as my major.  I am from Chicago, Illinois and my parents are Ms. Jacquelyn Jackson and Mr. Christopher Shelton.

I graduated from Thornton Fractional North High School in Calumet City, Illinois where I was a member of the National Honor Society and vice president of my junior class.  I was also selected as the Most Valuable Player of the badminton team my senior year.

I chose Alabama State University because I heard they had a spectacular teaching program as I aspire to be an English teacher.  Since arriving at Alabama State University, I am active with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), NSLS, Student Alabama Education Association, Sigma Tau Delta, UNITE and the co-curriculum designer for a volunteer organization Read and Reign.

My parents and my grandmother have had the greatest influence on my life because they’re the reason I am the young woman I am today. They always kept me on the right track and kept me disciplined, and they’ve played a big role in why I’m so driven and goal-oriented in my studies. Another person who has had a great influence on my life is my high school Advanced Composition and African American Literature teacher, Mrs. Tiffany Stewart-Williams, as her class is the reason I chose to pursue a career in high school English education.

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 was accepted to participate in a program at ASU called 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 her 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) and 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.
