NSU has been and will continue to be instrumental in helping me achieve my goals to become a professional musician as well as a producer and business owner. I have received a plethora of musical knowledge and practices to help build my vocabulary and establish a foundation to build my career on. Those amongst the staff who have been very influential in my path are Mr. David Booker, Mr. Rogers Brown, Ms. Stephanie Sanders, and Mr. Paul Adams. These extraordinary people have helped reveal to me how much work actually goes into being a great musician as well as an entrepreneur.
I would stress to future students that if they come to Norfolk State University, they should come with a purpose and keep that purpose in mind for the entire four years that they will be enrolled. If they can do that, it will save them an enormous amount of time, money, and hassle. I would also advise them to take advantage of every resource offered to them and even if they’re not offered, to go look for them. NSU has many online and on-site resources right on campus that many students take for granted. Never hesitate to pursue anything that will put you in a better position to achieve your goals.
