Influenced by her mother's compassion and endurance to help others, Roberts has devoted countless hours to her community. As a deputy fire marshal community volunteer for the City of East Point Fire Department, she assisted neighbors and other citizens with first aid, blood pressure monitoring, fire prevention and emergency escape plan training.

Prior to attending SC State, Roberts was an active member of the following organizations: Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and National Technical Honor Society (NTHS).

As a determined and motivated person, Robert’s motto is “our greatest glory is not in ever falling but in rising every time we fall.”
