Years in MCSP: 3 years
What have you been up to since graduation?
After graduation, I worked as MCSP's first Coordinator of Diversity Initiatives for the Intergroup Relations Council (IRC). Next, I worked in Boston for one year as a Program Advisor to international students. Following that experience, I attended the University of Texas at Austin and obtained my Master's in Social Work.
What are you currently doing now?
Currently, I am a third year doctorate student at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. I study the impact skin tone bias, discrimination, and colorism have on African American girls' self-esteem and academic outcomes.
How do you integrate social justice into your life post-college?
I integrate social justice into every aspect of my life post-college. Through my many travels, jobs, and schooling opportunities I have always worked with and advocated for racial and ethnic minorities to receive equitable opportunities. I continue to serve communities of color as a social work student both through research and practice.
What is your favorite memory about MCSP?
My favorite MCSP memory always has been and always will be attending Alternative Spring Break or ASB in Chicago during my sophomore year. We had an awesome car ride and played the best self-selected music, the students we worked with in Chicago always made us laugh, and we had the best site leaders of all time Emily Rosengren and Abby White <3
