Global Awareness: My activities to bring about global awareness include joining different clubs and organizations on campus such as AYL (African youth league) where students belonging to different nations and countries in Africa all come together and share their cultures. I am also planning to look into studying abroad in a different nation where I would be able to adopt and learn another culture and their livelihoods.
Original Inquiry: Something that I’ve considered researching is a study on how black children (black girls in specific) have been proven to receive less nurturing and less care inside school classrooms and my goal is to do study on why that is..
Academic Enrichment: Throughout this year at college, I hope to be able to take a lot of advanced courses on black history and social justice that focus on ways to advance POC and the. community within it. I also aspire to pursue an internship at the state house or in a law firm whether it be during summer or during my second semester.
Leadership Development: Developing leadership is something that I believe is a critical attribute to obtain and I intend on doing so through College Dems. After being a member for a semester, I plan to run for a portion on the executive board. I believe that the skills and experience of working with other leaders will hone strategic abilities for me that will contribute to my goals of working in politics after college.
Service Engagement: I intend on volunteering with 1 Girl which is an organization that mentors young girls inside the Columbus community. These mentors teach these young girls to pursue areas they are passionate about like law, science, art etc. Being apart of this organization would set me up for potentially wanting to mentor others within PSL.
