Personal Statement

As I grew up as a black woman in Green Bay, I struggled with depression and suicide for most of my adolescent years. Deeper insight led me to the conclusion that our Eurocentric school systems and other American institutions are built in a way to lead to the learned helplessness and mental institutionalization I had faced that led to my struggles and self-loathing. As I shared my experience, I connected with others that helped me understand that although my circumstance was very unique, it was far too common. After the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020, empowerment of being my authentic self filled me with an energy unlike no other. My dedication to social justice resides in the fact that crimes against humanity are being placed upon the American people every day, no matter the race, gender, class, sexual orientation, or other marginalizing factors that divide us, we all experience at some point in our life the same injustices that break us down in American society. I am currently starting a non-profit organization called We the Change-Makers, where our team will work to mobilize and provide solutions to these crimes against humanity in America.
