Mr. James studied Accounting and hails from Hebron, CT, where he attended RHAM High School.

Why did you initially choose to attend Morehouse?

My cousin, an ‘02 graduate of Morehouse our college, has served as my role model since I was eleven years old and I believed if I wanted to be a man like him I should attend Morehouse, a school whose mission is to develop great and successful men.

What has kept you at Morehouse?

The brotherhood and mentorship opportunities that exist in every corner of Morehouse.

Why did you choose to study Accounting?

To give myself a technical skill that will always be in high demand but is also currently underrepresented by African American men.

Outside of Accounting, what have you spent time learning about?

I have additionally taken German, upper-level English, introductory computer science, and introductory cinema/television courses at Morehouse.

More about Morehouse Business Association:

I have been involved with the Morehouse Business Association since my Freshman year. This student ran organization has provided me with endless opportunities for both my career opportunities and leadership development. This culminated in my experience serving in the role as Business Manager, where I led a student team of five other members to plan, coordinate, and budget an off-campus conference attended by over 50 students and over ten companies.

More about Dubai:

I am most proud of my opportunity to study abroad in Dubai, UAE. On that trip I served as a student officer, helping assure the trip ran smoothly. I had the opportunity to learn about the Middle East and be exposed directly to their culture while also making life-long friends with my fellow students also on the trip. I am very proud to have had the opportunity to expand my world view beyond the United States.
