Hometown: Montego Bay, Jamaica
Major/Minor/Institutes: Anthropology, with a concentration in the Ford Institute
Campus Organizations: United Voice of Albion College (UVAC), Black Students Alliance (BSA), Smooth Transitions Program, Umbrella.
Why I chose Ford: I joined the Ford Institute because I am interested in becoming an attorney. Every lawyer needs to know as much about politics as possible.
Internship plans: For my internship, I want to travel to Florida to intern with a criminal attorney, who works in the area of juvenile defending.
Post-graduation plans: My post-graduation plan is to attend law school.
Favorite movie about my future profession: My favorite movie, Gridiron Gang, focuses specifically on my career goal in becoming a juvenile defendant. The most touching part of this movie is that most of the boys are given second or third chances of life with the help off family, significant others, and even the officers who reside over them.
Current issue/topic that is important to me: Cultural awareness. For example, when talking about African Americans, many people just use the blanket term "minorities," a word that identifies a bunch of different groups of people. Different races and cultures should be celebrated for their differences, not lumped together because of their population size.
