Meet ECHOboom Intern Tone Lewis. She is from a small town in Alabama and she harbors big dreams about communications, law and justice.
This is her ECHOboom introductory blog.
Hello, I am Tone’ Lewis from Grove Hill, Alabama — a small peck on the map but home to me. The town I grew up in rarely mentioned HBCUS. It was not until my brother attended Tuskegee University that I learned more about HBCUS and decided to attend Tuskegee.
Although I looked at other HBCUS, something about Tuskegee University screamed “This is the place for you”, and yes, I believed “her”, and as a matter of fact I still do. Being here has allowed me to grow, become more involved, and realize my dreams are not just dreams, they are actually, my goals.
I am a Communication major and English minor, with plans of graduating Tuskegee University to attend Law School. After receiving my J.D. I want to work with inmates who have been wrongfully convicted, in hopes of bringing more justice to the system.
While here on campus, I am the Communication Club’s Vice President, The National Society of Leadership and Success’s Treasurer, and the Pre Law Society’s Treasure. Amongst those I also participate in several other organizations, and I am glad to announce that I am Tuskegee EchoBoom’s newest intern.
I am aiming to enhance my writing skills and communication skills, along with planting my seed here with ambitions of helping EchoBoom flourish into an even more amazing company than it already is. After all, it is Tuskegee’s only outlet for updated news, blogs, events, and more for the community and the University.
