Hi my name is Carlus, I am 19 years old, the youngest of my two brothers Curtis Jr. and Tamaris ages 25 and 27 and sister Bianca who is 20 years of age. I was born and raised in Covington, Georgia by my parents Curtis and Shawna.I have no children but one day pray to have some of my own, a lovely boyfriend Keenan, and 3 best friends Bianca (sister), Nakia and Miah. My family is rapidly expanding and we are proud to say that we are still together and strong by the grace of God. My hobbies include sleeping, eating, going to church, board games and outdoor activities,reading, learning,shopping, laughing, hanging out with friends and family, playing badmitton, and being with my lovely boyfriend. I have 5 wonderful nieces and nephews Khurtasia ( 9 months old),Cedric ( 1years old),Mikey (4 years old), Emanuel (5years old) Leyah (6 years old) and Destiny ( 6 years old). I attended Kiddie Corner for preschool, Fairview Elementary School where I was promoted to Cousins Middle School and then to Newton High School where I graduated in the class of 2008 as an Honor Graduate and obtained a College Preparatory with Distinction Diploma. I am Currently attending Georgia Perimeter College as a sophmore working on an Associates of Science in Psychology where I will then transfer to Georgia State University to obtain my Bachelor's degree in Clinical Social Work and further degrees. I will become a successful therapist in my field because I have a passion for helping people and excellent at giving advice to those in need. I am currently an employee at Washington Street Community Center where I will expand my knowledge in helping other and giving back to my community. My ancestors are Brownings preachers and singers, Goss' first black sheriff in Newton County, first black woman to own a beauty salon in the Covington Square and fought in Civil War, Urquahars', Foster/Thomas maids and servants ,Goodrum's fought in the civil war. I found an interesting newspaper article about Emogene Williams, a prominent black woman of Newton County called " A Life Apart," this is article has some very interesting information about Emogene and her life experiences from the historic past.
