Hello! My name is Jessica and I am a content creator and collaborator crafting an online platform that connects my passion with my purpose. I have a creative and intellectual interest in the ways that individual and communal identity are expressed throughout the African Diaspora. I received my B.A. in African American Studies in 2009. I have researched how Black youth construct identity based on their cultural experiences.
I am interested in the ways that art, culture, education, and identity intersect at the core of social change movements. I am invested in exploring the ways that the whole quality of life can be improved for low-income people of color through approaches that focus on elevating social consciousness and encouraging creative expression.
I am participating in the StartingBloc Fellowship to gain the strategies, network of collaborators and mentors, and confidence that I need to make postivie social impact in my local and global community. Please support me in my journey!
