AYANNA CHARLES, SENIOR, 18

Senior Ayanna Charles was quick to discuss what a close relationship that her and her grandmother have. At the time of our interview, Charles’ was turning 18 the following day and her grandmother had just had her birthday last week, “We’re practically twins,” she revealed. These close family ties have truly helped Ayanna develop into the young, motivated woman she is today. She tells Madame Noire, “What drives me is my family. I’m very family oriented. My family really drives me. They motivate me every day. Every day when I’m like, ‘Ah…I don’t want to do this anymore!’ They are like, ‘Alright, just keep pushing forward. There’s something at the end of this.'”
