Being inspired to go down a business-oriented career path may be intimidating if you’ve rarely seen any successful people who look like you. If you haven’t heard of the National Association of Black Accountants, we are a professional student organization in the Ivy College of Business and related majors. NABA offers different opportunities to those who participate with our organization here on campus through our bi-weekly meetings.

I haven’t been known to bring too much attention toward racial tension or discrimination that occurs on-campus. Now, I don’t have a blind eye toward them, I know that they exist and that they’re a real problem, but I don’t often talk about them.

Four years ago I moved in on campus and could not find my room. I had my bed and dresser but it was unclear to me where I would call home.

Now, I think of all the B’s that could have been A’s. I think of the final I missed because I slept through my alarm The times I wanted to confide in a professor but didn't. The time I learned of the rules I’m supposed to live under as a Black girl.
