Hi, my name is JaLeesa Wright. I was born in raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I am currently living the life I dreamed of when I was in 5th grade and had to write a letter predicting my future self. I currently live in Uptown even though I am not a hipster I do enjoy the art and spirit that surrounds the community. Although I am relatively new to the campus I have been attending college for the last three years of my nineteen years breathing on earth. One thing that I am consistently striving for is a better understanding of people not just society as a whole. I believe there is a lot to learn from some one based off of what they say then who they may present themselves to be. So, far I have exercised my want for understanding by volunteering in several communities. Last summer I worked at a domestic abuse shelter called Tubman in Minneapolis. While I was there I was able to see varies outcomes of situation that I myself had been through. I am also apart of STLF a volunteer group on campus. I plan on dedicating my life to encourage those who are living through my past to sustain a stable future.
