Jade DuVal

Major(s): English and French
Hometown: Cleveland, OH
Advisor & Department: C. Rhonda Cobham-Sander, Black Studies
Research Interest: My research aims to look into how African American girls identities are represented. To do this I will be comparing how black girlhood is defined in The Bluest Eye and Salvage the Bones with the standard that American society expects black girls to uphold for social acceptance. 
Fun fact: When I was younger I used to collect hotel cards and kept them organized in a card holder that I still have.
