My name is Tiffany Ofori and I am a first year student at The Ohio State University. As an African-American female living in an inner-city neighborhood, I grew up observing the injustice that occurred around the world and in my community that was beyond my control and wanted to create a change on the stigmas that come with being a girl as well as identifying as black in society. The perception that the color of your skin could force individuals to be in a marginalized group left me wanting to do more for my community. This change starts with putting our voices in the room and changing the narrative. Only when our voices can be heard that we can wish for a brighter future. A future where marginalized individuals set the tone for their OWN stories.
