Current data for Description

Interview with JaQueshia Allen conducted by Gayle Schaub for the GVSU Libraries' Connected Exhibit, displayed in September 2016. Edited clips of interviews accompanied watercolor portraits of students and an interactive watercolor activity for exhibit visitors. Ja-Queshia is an April graduate now enrolled in the Advanced Standing Master of Social Work program. A first-generation college student from Flint, Michigan, Ja-Queshia decided early on at GVSU to step outside of her comfort zone and get involved on campus. She got a job with TRiO Student Support Services in her freshman year, joined Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed business fraternity, and actively sought out events and opportunities to connect with other students. Interested in working in a helping profession, Ja-Queshia took advantage of a service-learning experience in Mississippi, interned with the Grand Rapids Housing Commission, and intends to use her degrees to eventually work in hospice care. She wants to encourage other students to keep moving forward and accomplishing their goals, no matter what they may face, and not let anything stop them from being successful.
