•Bené Boss• When one woman wins, we all win! #Repost @_brittanyclaybrooks ・・・ Last week, I was featured in the Washington Square News’ annual “Influential Issue” as one of the Most Influential students on NYU’s Campus. I am the first graduate student to ever do so. This was completely unsolicited and out of thousands of students, I had no clue anyone was watching me. As I sat back in reflection today, I am still overwhelmed and grateful. I pride myself on just doing what needs to be done but every now and again there is something that reminds me of the “why.” Only 4 percent of former foster youth and children of incarcerated parents make it to college. Those that graduate are even less than that. And grad school might as well stay out of the question. But when they asked me who I was, I told them about Detroit and Inkster (My Home). I told them about my expulsion from public school at 15. I told them about my hard ass parents who I don’t play about AT ALL. And I told them ALL about why I chose to keep pushing. They needed to know that we here and we do this just like, if not BETTER than anyone else. And if they aren’t already, they need to be prepared because I may have been the first of my kind, but I damn sure won’t be the last. To everyone who has supported me and continues to do so, this is for you. We made it ya’ll. To share in this moment with me. #NYU #Wagner #SSLD #WSN #Detroit #Inkster #WayneCounty #DirtyGlove #Famu #StrikingToTheTop
