enrolled in the two-year Justice and Legal Thought Program where she was
able to inquire and learn the ethical and historical foundations of a justice

health, demographics, education, etc and create documents for public use as
well as assist in making documents ADA accessible. She assisted with daily
operations at vaccine clinics across Montgomery county and worked at
