Since she was young, Brit understood many of the problems facing her community and saw education, policy change, and advocacy as ways to alleviate some of those tensions, hence her yearn for a law school education. She is most interested in issues relating to criminality of the Black body, poverty, abortion rights, sexual assault prevention, and the Prison Industrial Complex. She is excited for her internship this summer.
