"I was really drawn to Antioch University not only because of its social justice component, but the environmental justice component, as well... AULA has given me a deeper understanding of the world around me that I didn’t have before. It’s not just about the system. It’s about people. I’ve gained an understanding of what happens to people when they’re marginalized, what happens to the environment when we aren’t concerned about it. So when I’m going out into communities that are trying to improve their conditions, I can be a leader."
