"I majored in Social Justice Studies because I wanted to create something, which I later discovered was change. The Social Justice Studies major helped me to understand how systems and power work for and against historically advantaged and disadvantaged groups. It also provided me with the foundation to understand multiple identities and move beyond difference to collaborate with others. Furthermore, providing me with the critical lens to empower communities that have been traditionally marginalized by creating practical and sustainable change. With this perspective, I am well prepared to make the United States' education system more equitable and inclusive."
