Year in School: Senior
Major/Minor: Comparative Women's Studies/Spanish

On Spelman's campus I am a member of the Social Justice Fellows program. Previously, I was an active member of Spelman College Student Government Association, a Sierra Club Climate Justice Fellow, a Campus Climate Fellow for the Arcus Foundation and a member of AUC Shut It Down. In our community, I work as the Assistant Manager of the West End Farmer's Market, I am a Young People For Fellow, Fellow with the Farmer's Market Leadership Program and a member of Orange Moon Sanctuary housing co-operative. I'm also very active in the black biking community as a member of Red Bike and Green ATL.
Currently, I apprentice on a number of different farms across Southwest Atlanta. When I finish at Spelman, I am eagerly anticipating continuing my work in the local food advocacy movement through working with a number of food justice organizations. This will allow me to continue organizing in my community while also focusing my passion on black people's access to healthy sustainable food systems.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
Being a Campus Queen who is deeply invested in the community outside of my school has given me a really interesting perspective as to what leadership looks like. Working to establish a Farmer's Market on campus for students that will follow behind us has been a really humbling experience, as it has challenged me to think creatively about student and community led solutions to food insecurity.
