Rochelle Alexander’s IME

Hello! My name is Rochelle Alexander. I am a first-year, early childhood education major at Spelman College. I am originally from Brooklyn, New York, but I currently reside in Dover, Delaware. My immediate and extended family are all from Caribbean Islands, therefore, I grew up listening mainly to Soca and Dancehall music.  As I grew older, I was exposed to hip hop/rap and pop music, and I accumulated a love for those genres. Music plays a large role in my life; it can calm me down but it can also raise my energy.
