About Me

Who knew that the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world! It is unfortunate that the U.S. has the most minorities (Hispanics, African Americans, etc…) incarcerated. It is concerning because as a minority, myself, hate to see how some of these individuals are mistreated by the system. Also, it should be kept in mind that several convictions are wrongful convictions. Life after prison isn’t any better. It’s the lack of fund for the programs that benefit these individual who are adjusting back to civilization. The system is doing a horrible job in giving these individual the help they need to adjust.  I believe people should be familiar with something as serious as incarceration rate and the prison system. I am currently a Senior at University of Maryland, College Park majoring in Communication Studies. My hopes is to become the next Olivia Pope or something along those lines.
