Home Campus: UNC

Hometown: Spartanburg, SC

Intended Major: Interdisciplinary Studies: Film concentration with Public Policy and African, African American Studies

What are you curious about and hope to explore as a Scholar? 

My curiosity is rooted in the correlation between popular media content and policy reform, using artistic mediums like documentary and narrative film to highlight systemic inequities and inequalities that perpetually ail marginalized communities. In part with fostering an aptitude in literature, specifically so with work that raises societal awareness and ruminative conversation, I hope to study the traditional systems in which these disparities culminate, advocating for progressive legislation in civil rights.
