In Her Own Words: Lila Grant, C'2020

May 2020

Young women come to Spelman expecting to join the sisterhood, but there’s no way to expect just how valuable the sisters gained here can change your life. Being able to be in a space where my classmates and hall-mates become not only my friends, but my life-long sisters is truly a blessing. The trust, love, respect for, and support of one another goes much deeper than a friendship.

Spelman Senior Lila Grant

My sisters, Joy and Angelique, have been by my side since freshman year. Together, we have made leaps and bounds unimaginable for three young Black girls, including the completion of our degrees through the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to uplift each other and encourage one another to have a positive impact on the world, and that wouldn’t be possible without the space provided to us by Spelman College.  #SpelmanGrad20
