Howard University senior Monet Heath (MGP ’19) shared her personal health journey in Andscape. As an intern with ESPN and Rhoden Fellow, Monet had the opportunity to write for the ESPN publication. As an aspiring journalist, she used her talent to write about her brain tumor diagnosis and a senior year that didn’t look like she thought it would.

Monet hasn’t let her diagnosis stop her. As a Rhoden Fellow this year, Monet worked at the NCAA women’s final four in Dallas and shadowed her ESPN colleagues at the NFL draft in Kansas City.

She credits her Midnight Golf experience and relationships with helping her navigate networking and gaining experiences.

“It’s a family like no other,” she said.

Her advice to younger students: “Just focus on finishing although the journey may not be what you thought it would be.”

This spring Monet will graduate from Howard.

“I’ve still been able to do wonderful things,” she said.
