I AM… a young, black woman from the Carolinas. I am a basketball player and I love to thrift and binge watch TV shows. I value my education and have always worked really hard in school, constantly pushing myself to do better and get involved in as many ways as I can. I am the child of two parents that suffer with drug and alcohol addiction, which pushes me to strive for a world in which proper rehabilitation is available and affordable, as well as proper care and therapy for children and families of addicts. I am also a student at a predominately-white school in the South, which pushes me to strive for an education system with anti-bias education and proper recollection of American history, with respect to race, gender, sexual orientation, class, and so much more. I also want our future to be full of reparations, justice, and equity for black individuals in our country.
