Student Leadership Apprentices – Biography

JaCorey Miller

JaCorey Miller
Agriculture / Animal Science

Hello, my name is JaCorey Miller, I’m nineteen years old, and going into my sophomore year at Prairie View A&M University. I was born and raised on the Southern side of Houston, Texas. I have been interested in doing many things since I was a young child, but when I got to Prairie View, I got completely clueless. I had a serious urge about working for the USDA, or go on the road professionally with well-known rodeos around the United States. I know it’s not going to be easy at all trying to get to where I need to be, but “JaCorey” has always been known not to give up on anything. When I graduate, I haven’t quiet decided what particular career I’m going to be doing. I honestly just know that I’m either going to on the road to rodeo, or I’m going to be a supervisor working for the USDA.

The reason why I say supervisor is because I have always been the type to either strive for excellence or set that example of leadership to others. I had to learn from many leaders that in order to lead you have to follow, and trust me I learned that concept real quick, because I always wanted to be known as leader and not a follower. I was reading an article one day written by John Maxwell, and he said “Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because their ability to empower others”. That leadership quote was, and still is my favorite because it sends a message to not just me, but maybe even millions of people.

Yanique Rhule

Yanique Rhule
Mass Communication / Agriculture Economics

My name is Yanique Rhule and I am a proud Jamaican. I wasn’t born with a gold spoon in my mouth. My father was never a part of my life and I have a mother that didn’t t know how to turn two cents into a dime.  There were days when I went without breakfast, lunch and dinner; my entire life has been a struggle. But, I refused to be a victim of my circumstances. Instead I rose above my circumstances and used my circumstances to carve who I am today; a strong, motivated, steadfast young woman, who goes for what I want and stops at nothing to achieve it. When I look at my life I am amazed by my accomplishments. I am a junior double majoring in Mass Communication and Agriculture Economics with a minor in Business Management.  I work with the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences. With my internship and a 21-hour course load, I am sometimes overwhelmed. Being a part of the College of Agriculture has been a tremendous blessing to me. The SLAP has pulled at every string in body to be the best that I can be. I always knew that I had the potential to do great things but what SLAP is doing is actually giving me the tools and skills that I need to do great things today and tomorrow.
