I am a current junior at Wake Forest University studying Communications and Politics. During my time here I have participated in many social justice initiatives, including a week-long service trip on LGBTQ advocacy and Branches, a social justice retreat. Previously, I worked with The Anna Julia Cooper Center on an independent research project on gentrification in Winston-Salem. Most recently, I worked as an education policy intern at The Century Foundation where I researched education disparities amongst marginalized students. Currently I am a student employee at the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Wake Forest University, where I plan and participate in diversity education workshops for students on campus. Attending a predominantly white institution forced me to confront my blackness, and learn to celebrate it rather than hide it through assimilation. I believe that in times as politically tumultuous as these, we need intersectional stories of black millennials at the forefront because we are the future. I am so excited to be apart of the Black on Campus cohort and to have a platform to center black college students such as myself.
