"Legacy. As a high school senior and soon to be first generation college student, I didn't know much about applying for college, college life, nor which college I would be interested in attending. During a campus visit to Spelman, I learned that my mother and I both shared the same birthday as Spelman: April 11.

"Legacy. When I enrolled in the Fall of 2016, I participated in Spelman traditions and became a part of a community of leaders, innovators and advocates -- all Spelmanites embody these identities in their own right," said Lewis.

"I often reminisce about how I got here and managed to stay. The many nights of prayers, along with years of suffering that those before me faced, allowed me to receive favor from God and Spelman College. I have learned so much from this institution about the importance of community, diligence, and how to impact others to leave a legacy. I believe I have left my mark on Spelman's campus. This fall, I will begin my medical school journey, and I look forward to utilizing the skills I have gained at Spelman in medical spaces."
