17 year old from Pennsylvania
I’m making my VOICE heard through this very medium of mass communication. I started a petition on change.org “Kelli’s Senior Project Petition” which aims to strive to have more influential and positive images of African American women in the media. This started off as a small interest in order to graduate but it has grown into something I have become truly passionate about. I was able to get in contact with a Disney channel producer who created the show “Doc McStuffins” which features a African American girl who wants to be a doctor. Less than 2% of doctors are African American Women! With support from my peers, I hope to be able to get my message across to show a more positive depiction of African American Women in the media!
