Durran: I'm a native of Kingston, Jamaica. So born and raised there and went to high school there before I came here to the United States. I had the privilege, I would say, to live in New York City. I lived in Brooklyn, Queens, pretty much all five boroughs. Then I took an academic and athletic scholarship to come down south to go to the University of Southern Mississippi. I majored in accounting there. I know, it's like Jamaica, New York, then Mississippi, and now Atlanta. I knew from high school in Jamaica that I was really good in accounting and I just decided to stick with it while I was in college. I didn't know there was a thing called “dropping” your major, or changing it. In Jamaica, it's whatever you choose. So it was the same major all throughout. And then obviously, I became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I ran track in college and I played Football my senior year. However, football for me was soccer. Like, why is this ball looking the way it does?! While in college, I also pledged a fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi.
Donyetta: I chuckled a few times while you were talking. I for sure changed my major the first semester of undergrad.
