Biography

My Name is Torrence-Gene Brown, and I am currently majoring in Sociology, with an emphasis in inequality & institutions and a minor in Africana Studies. I was born in Oceanside, California, but did majority of my growing in Las Vegas, NV, Clinton, MD, and Aurora, CO. My academic goals are to be the first in my family to graduate college, and then obtain my Ph.D. I aspire to become a professor, influencing policies with my research to change the United States of America, and eventually the world. I am currently president of Black Student Union (BSU) and an advocate for Assault Survivors Advocacy Program (ASAP). Something I want people to know is that through my endeavors I hope to continue to forge high racial-esteem within the black community. I am privileged and honored to be part of the McNair family! Love, peace, and hair grease. Power to the people!‚Äč
