Our latest Featured Student from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund’s 12th Annual Leadership Institute and Recruitment Fair comes to us from Medgar Evers College. Natina McKessey, originally from the Caribbean island of Jamaica, is a very involved student dedicated to the organizations she belongs to.
As a member of the Women’s Volleyball Team and the Vice Chairwoman for International Student Affairs (part of the C.U.N.Y Student Senate), Natina is both an athlete and an advocate. She feels it is important to work alongside a variety of different people and to learn from all of the groups you are involved with. She is also a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, the VP of Career Placement within the A.A.F, a senior class representative, President of the Radio Nation Club, and a Malave Leadership Academy Fellow! Natina divulges that giving back and building new relationships are what motivate her to be so involved.
So how does someone so busy stay on top of their studies? Natina keeps herself in check by staying honest and realistic. She understands how important it is to prioritize and manage her time properly – and it shows!
Stay tuned for more of our Featured Students. We love being able to share their amazing stories with all of our readers!
