Gender Identity: Female
Graduation Year: 2018
High School Experience: Public school in Westchester, NY with a graduating class of about 400 students.
Extracurricular Activities: I have a paid job making the Brown Yearbook, I’m part of the Brown Chapter of the ACLU, I’m part of the Petey Green Program where students volunteer to tutor inmates at the Adult Correctional Institute in Cranston once a week, and I’m also part of the Meiklejohn [peer advising] program
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact?
I started doing the ACLU my junior fall and that is when I started getting involved with the specific subcommittee for advocating for the rights of incarcerated people. I was doing that in tandem with taking a class for my concentration that was A Global History of Prison Captivity and that’s kind of how I geared my focus for advocating for the rights of people touched by the criminal justice system and that’s the work that I’m going to want to do when I leave Brown as well. That’s when that crystallized and then the spring after doing that work was when I got involved with Petey Greene. All of that work together has been the favorite of my work at Brown.
