As an undergraduate student fulfilling a B.A. in architectural studies and sociology, combined with a certificate in Program in Community Action (PICA), I have exclusively focused my studies around my passion for children's personhood, civil rights and social action, and education and social services, especially through this research opportunity.
Since joining the team in fall 2013, I have primarily assisted with finalizing data management, data entry and data preparation. Listening to the interviews that were conducted during the summer of 2013 inspired me to explore the different lived experiences each participant shared and I aim to contextualize their perception regarding the multiple aspects of inequality that they experience on a daily basis.
Considering the fact that I wanted to examine educational policies and their effects on youth, I decided to focus my Senior Integrative Project and PICA project on youth's perception of the racial/ethnic school 'choice' programs currently enforced in their hometown.
With your support and sponsorship, not only would you be aiding my learning, but also advocating for the right to let youth have a platform to voice their opinions regarding very critical and integral issues in our society. Thanks!
