I am a senior studying mechanical engineering, but Junior year I 
discovered a passion for criminal justice reform.  Through the Nursing 
class "Women and Incarceration" I was introduced to the many struggles 
that incarcerated women face before, during, and after their 
incarceration.  I am currently a TA for that same class, and I am also a 
part of the commutation project led by Devan Spear, From Cell to Home.  
My goal as a TA is to provide the students with an enriching and 
valuable experience that opens their eyes to the problems in our 
criminal justice system while simultaneously providing the women we work 
with valuable tools and information to help them thrive once they are 
released.
