Current Placement: Event Coordinator at the University of Pittsburgh
" My minor in African Studies has allowed me to live my life with pride. Yielding the understanding of such a dynamic legacy, I have been able to inform my family and community of the beauty, power, sophistication and influence which Africa has possessed and continues to manifest. With so many transformational developments taking place through out the world today, I have learned to set my eye on Africa as the epicenter for change, growth, resource and investment. When Africa is strong, the world is strong. I encourage you to explore its many wonders and gifts. "
Current Placement: student at West Virginia Law School
"I'm currently in law school..so far in law school I've gotten a fellowship with a nonprofit who helps abused/neglected children and an externship with a Title IX office that helps with discrimination and sexual misconduct. My minor in African Studies opened my eyes to the beauty that is possible in places that people tend to stereotype in a negative way, and I will forever be grateful for that."
