Resources for aspiring & current black veterinary students

Home: Welcome

What does TwoPointOne signify?

A small percentage...


This is the current percentage of African-American veterinarians in the United States. 

(Data USA)

TwoPointOne desires to bring an increase to this small percentage by providing an online platform filled with educational, financial, and mental health resources to assist, uplift, and empower black students who aspire to one day pursue the field of veterinary medicine. This is one of few platforms that targets black perspective and current students of veterinary medicine. Here you will find informative material to guide your journey to D.V.M.

Meet the founder

Antonia M. Nickleberry, DVM, MBA


Antonia Nickleberry is a Texarkana, Texas native who graduated from Liberty-Eylau High School in 2012. She then graduated from Texas A&M University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife & Fisheries Sciences. In 2019, she completed her Master of Business Administration from Concordia University-Texas. She completed D.V.M. education at St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine in January 2024. 

As a first-generation college student, Antonia faced many obstacles in her collegiate career. Being in a field with a minimal amount of black people, she felt the lack of support from within the profession which led her to create TwoPointOne. Her vision for TwoPointOne is to provide educational, financial, and mental health resources to aspiring and current black veterinary students.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States
