March 2020: Kiana Ramirez

Kiana says she chose to major in criminology and sociology because she is interested in understanding “how institutions and other sorts of systems of inequality affect the people in my Latinx community, and how that plays a role in shaping their life chances.” Kiana is currently applying her criminology course work as an intern with Peaceprints of Western NY, a reentry program for those involved with the criminal justice system.

After graduation, Kiana plans to return to her neighborhood in Brooklyn and work for a non-profit organization that mentors at-risk youth.
