Rachel Ezeamaka is a Nigerian American hailing from Upper Darby, PA. She is known for her academic diligence, commanding campus presence, and Nigerian pride. She is a Biology/Pre-med major completing her sophomore year at the nation’s first HBCU, Cheyney University. An academic institution that she chose not only for its legacy but its outstanding medical education. Rachel was also offered a total of $4.7 million in scholarships from a variety of colleges but chose Cheyney. She also made history by being the youngest and first sophomore in becoming Miss Cheyney University.
My love for my HBCU is actually the reason why I decided to run for Miss Cheyney and become the 48th Miss Cheyney. For me personally even though I am only a sophomore I see the trials and tribulations we face as a University and wanted to use my position to uplift my school. It is also why I decided to run for Miss National Black College Hall of Fame, to put my University back on the map.
