Get To Know The Speaker
I am a first generation college student that is constantly trying to be a better woman than I was yesterday. I began my college career at the age of twenty-five with a ninth grade education and a GED. I obtained my masters degree in History, which has allowed me to help tell the stories of marginalized communities in the South. In turn, assisting communities in telling their stories has helped me navigate my own story and how we all truly deserve the pursuit of decolonizing our own narratives.
