Gateway to advocacy

Shaniya Jasper
Women's and Gender Studies

Shaniyah first became interested in women’s and gender studies in high school because she wanted to work with and for women’s rights. She aspires to practice law and be an active advocate for marginalized individuals.

“My major is preparing me for this because I am more understanding of intersectionality and inclusivity, which is important in any type of work. Women’s and Gender Studies is a gateway to advocacy, which is why I matched my major with the law and legal studies minor.”
