A fire was kindled inside of her to help end mass incarceration and thus she became involved in Shakespeare in Prison, University of Michigan’s Prisoner Creative Arts Project, the Michigan Prison Doula Initiative, Hamtramck Free School, and now The Bail Project. She is also a writer who is finishing her degree in Public Affairs.
