She graduated from High Point University that same year with a Bachelor’s degree in English Writing, with concentrations in Language, Education and Disability Studies. She has worked on the Women’s March, the DC Pride March, and other civil rights demonstrations, as well as being the co-chair of the DC Metro ADAPT chapter.
