I am a twenty-six year old college graduate, with an Associate's degree in Criminal Justice and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Addiction. I am currently completing my Master's degree in Legal Studies, and I have plans to begin law school by Fall of 2019. I returned home from California State prisons on November 8, 2017, after serving one year. Since my return to my community I have began to advocate for criminal justice issues. I am currently a member of Anti-recidivism Coalition (ARC), as well as an intern. I sit on the Advisory Board of the Women’s Dignity Campaign in order to assist in the restoration, protection, and assurance of dignity to women incarcerated in California state prisons.
