My name is Veronique, but everyone calls me Veve. I am a high school senior and going to an HBCU under a hospitality major. I am president of the African American Club and one of the captains of the track and field team at my school. Outside of school, I work at a retirement home as a waitress. I also proudly participate in the ACT-SO program under the NAACP in the categories of photography, performance poetry, and written poetry.
