Student explores charter school impact for Vinson Fellows project

I am an Athens native—my parents both graduated from the University of Georgia, I was born here, and I have lived my entire life in and around the Classic City. I am currently a first-year student with intended majors in economics and philosophy. Following graduation, I hope to attend law school to specialize in civil and human rights, litigating for the indigent and underrepresented. I am drawn towards socioeconomic barriers that affect the underclass and disadvantaged, so the advancement of our public education system, as an avenue for reducing social inequity, is very important to me.
