They look like siblings don't they? Their smiles are similar too.

You have an attractive, accomplished family. That's the part of the black community I like to see highlighted!

^ Thank you, Lynn. You are very sweet to say that.

It's the American story. Our ancestors paid the hard dues. And thankfully they gave to us the values of education, law-abidingness and work.

Oh my, your cousin rocks and is now added to my list of academic role models! That's the kind of diverse career I want when I get done with this damn PhD program.
