Degrees and Certifications: Biology with a minor in Chemistry

Daija Barnett


Greetings!  I was born and raised in Hollywood, FL, where I spent my early years. My father, a dedicated individual, have been serving in the U.S. Army for the past 20 years, instilling in me a sense of discipline and commitment to service. Due to my father's various assignments, I had the opportunity to travel to different locations and countries during my upbringing, which contributed to mydiverse experiences and broadened my perspective on the world.

As I moved from place to place, I attended several middle and high schools, adapting to new environments and making friends along the way. However, it was during my time at Texas Southern University (TSU) in Houston, Texas, that I found a sense of stability and began my focused educational journey. At TSU, I pursued a degree in biology, demonstrating my passion for the sciences and my dedication to academic excellence.

After successfully completing my studies and graduating from TSU, I ventured into the professional world, working for the State of Texas as a Childcare Inspector. In this role, I took on the important responsibility of ensuring the safety and well-being of children, combining my knowledge of biology with my desire to make a positive impact on young live

My journey is characterized by the commitment to continuous learning, personal growth, and serving those around me. With my dedication, diverse experiences, and passion for education and healthcare, I am poised to make a lasting impact in mychosen paths and contribute to the betterment of the community.
