Henson was born in Washington, DC, the daughter of Bernice, a manager at Woodward & Lothrop, and Boris Henson, a janitor.  She attended Oxon Hill High School in Oxon Hill, MD. Henson’s first name is of Arabic origin, meaning “hope.” Her middle name is Swahili, meaning “love.” She first attended NC A&T where she started a major in Electrical Engineering.
