I'm from San Francisco, California. I am a member of the Black Students' Union. My academic interests include urban development, journalism, and social media marketing. Black Studies is the most comprehensive major at Amherst College. The core courses impart the fundamental skills that one should get from a liberal arts education, reading, writing, debating and researching. If it were not for these courses, I would not be as well prepared coming out of Amherst as I am, nor would I be as confident in my skills moving forward.
