Meet Our Scholars
Omari Foote is a sophomore journalism major and graphic design minor at Howard University. When her family moved from New Jersey to Georgia, she got through the tough transition by reading and imagining worlds, getting lost in them. Omari eventually began to take on writing herself. She excelled quickly, garnering multiple awards, including the Steve Marine Poetry Award and recognition from the Georgia Scholastic Press Association for my Commentary Article. Omari is dedicated to empowering Black queer people and giving them a platform to express themselves creatively. Presently, she writes for The Hilltop and serves as a Social Media Intern for D.C Tutoring and Mentoring Initiative. In her free time, Omari writes poetry and plays basketball. She hopes to graduate in 2024 and eventually begin her career as a journalist.
